you should get the end plates powder coated, but that's just me. I don't like the grayish color.

for ppl sayin not hearing popping sound from their APRs... here is wut i think:

maybe you didnt hear it... but the guy did... and why bother doubting him if he had the experience of hearing the sound?

he solved his solution, everybody happy... why come here and start confusing him why he heard the sound or not... idunno

I had the popping noise with my apr bar. I got my bar a year before I installed my springs and struts. With the stock suspension I had no problems. After I installed my H&R springs & KYB AGX struts I had the popping noise. At first I thought that it was the springs or struts not being installed properly. I reinstalled my springs & struts 3 times and still had that popping noise. On a whim I decided to take off my APR strut bar and no popping noise.

For all you people that have APR bars did you lower your car before or after you installed your bar. I think this may make a differce in whether you get that popping noise. Maybe the bar got "conformed?" to what ever suspension you had at that time and changing your suspension throws it out of place or something. Just speculating here.

I had my car lowered first with eibach springs then got the APR Strut bar, no popping. But I also changed my suspension after the springs were installed for a couple of months and went with Tein Super Street Dampers, still having no popping noise.
