Megan Racing is distributed allll over eBay.

One little brace won't do anything by itself, but adding it along with a bunch of other suspension componenets is natural.

well i do have lowering springs and front strut bar

i planning to get the rear TRD strut bar along with this rear under brace

and then if money permits some TRD sways(front and back)

so what do you think is it worth the 60 bux???

Get it, but get the Tanabe version instead.

I think you can swing the extra $50 to get a real brand. smile

I'd get Hypermotive - $100... looks much better and it's a known brand

- I saw that GB as well, but these rear under braces don't really have a benefit as far as stiffening the chassis. If you're getting the TRD rear strut brace it's pretty much all you need back there besides sways underneath... I may get the Hypermotive one just to complete my set but imo it's not really a necessary mod

I heard that Megan is crap. I would go with Tanabe. It does help but only if you're pushing your car to the limits.

no matter how hard you push yoru car its not gonna make a difference wher eit bolts it is alreayd very stiff.

if youare looking for a new brace go with the cusco front lower tie bar (not tananbe front )

makes a world of difference cause it bolts where there is some play tanabe's front doesn't

teh rear lower tie bar is not noticable on anyones car just a nother mod for the list
