APR FRONT FLEX BAR OR TRD REAR BAR
hey guys, i was thinking about going with the apr front flex bar here at ecelica.com but i was also considering the TRD rear bar. the only thing holding me back from getting the TRD is that many people seem to have problems getting things to fit in the back seat. is this true? also who has had experiences from both or either bar and what would be best for me since i am getting TRD lowering springs first? thanks for your modding opions...also please consider the price to install the mods too thumbsup rice

TRD is a hassle to install ... get the Hypermotive 2pt rear strut bar. They also make
a front strut bar.

sorry about that ... link fixed ... it's .net not .com

www.hypermotive.net

I have a hypermotive front strut bar and I love it. It's a little pricey but totally worth the money in both looks and finish. Plus the middle bar is removable without removing the strut plates thumbsup thumbsup

I've heard that you'll feel a better gain from adding the rear strut bar. If you are only planning on getting one of them.

the apr bar is only 140 bucks...i was wondering should i get the springs first then the bar or vice versa...cuz the springs are 170+50 for alingnment+110-75 for install...that's 330 max...ouch. but i hear you should put the front bar in after the springs...is this true?

what does the rear lower arm brace at hypermotive.net do? It looks really cool, does this really work? is it worth the 100 bucks?

get some springs first... more bang for the buck. i also recommend the Hypermotive Rear strut.. its a lot easier to just remove if you need to move big objects.

ct, im kinda in the same situation as you are right now..im still debating whether to get the front strut bar first or the sway bar kit first..i've read that the front strut bar doesnt make a big difference(i could be wrong), whereas the sway bar kit really helps a lot on corners..im leaning towards the Hypermotive front strut bar,if ever im going to get one, i heard nothing but praises on this product..as to the sway bar kit, i think i'll go with Hotchkis or TRD
