I have one in my car and I like it alot. The main thing is that the floor bar and strut bar are non-adjustable, that's where most of the strut bars flex.

The cross braces are adjustable, but not really pivot joints so there shouldn't be too much flex there either.

I have one for sale if you're interested hehe... 92-95 EG Hatchback $200, brand new.

yeah but did you feel a difference? and how heavy is this thing? im skeptical about the cross braces. they seem flimsy like my c pillar.

They're not heavy at all...

as for feeling the difference... I really couldn't tell you because I just beefed up my suspension completely, all at one shot so I don't know what made the most improvement. I've also only drivn the car 4 times since building it.

that single set up by itself will not make diff

i had a nice c pillar bar all it did was squeek after 2 months from all the cornering and flex then i would have to tighten it back up again every 2 months

I would install it and then have all of the joints/fasteners within the brace itself welded. I don't know if that would cause issues with removal, though.
