Front Strut Bar Suggestions?
I have been looking for a front strut bar but everyplace I call says they are out of stock? Does anyone know where I can find one and what brand? Does brand matter?

tanabe comes with bolts and is REALLY easy to install... plus no popping noise like APR.

I got one too. Perfect fit. Doesn't come with a battery-tie down but it's not needed. The tanabe sustec strut bar fits fine in conjunction with the stock battery tie down.
