rear strut bar
imma bout to put in my front strut bar today, and was just wondering if you guys recommend getting the rear strut bar? i've read in the forums that the front makes a real difference, so would the back make such a big difference as well? or would i just be fine with just the front strut bar? thanks!!!

a rear with the front you will notice more of a difference...I was going to get the rear but didn't because i was going to put a system in and it was a lot of work to get a TRD one in...
with both it will handle better than with just one.

What color does the 2pt rear strut from hypermotive come in? I looked at the pics on the web site and it looks gold. But in the description it says it's polished aluminum?

It is polished alum. It looks gold because of the flash from the camera.

Also as the an install guide, I already threw away their paperwork a while ago and I should have thought of doing one when my car was apart.

I really don't feel like ripping my trunk apart. Although when I get around to redoing my stereo system I'll make an install guide then.
