Strut Bars

I've just installed a front strut bar for my car. Now, is there any difference at all in the handling or do I need to install the lower strut bar and/or the rear strut bar? And what's the difference between the lower and rear strut bar? Please advise...

there might be a slight different, but it wont really be noticable from just a strut bar

sway bars make a bigger difference than strut bars. sway bars connects the subframe to the lower control arms. the strut bars just connects the frame together for less flexing. in everyday driving, you won't even notice the difference on strut bars except maybe a quicker response or something.

well what the hell do you do with your car. what kinda tires do you have.

best mods to make are.... 1. tires, 2. shocks, 3. springs, 4. sway bars, 5. rear strut bar if your car is a hatch.
