3 pt rear strut bars

as far as 3 pt bars go, what would you go for TRD or c-one. What price have you paid for these bars and what kind of performance increase have you got from the bars.

TRD cause it's cheaper, but a pain to install I think
I would like to get a rear strut bar but you gotta cut plastics and shit frown

i haven't experimented with rear 3pt strut bars ...yet happywink

but from those two the JDM c-one is going to be a bit more costly. As far as stiffness that i'm still idunno

price isn't a factor.. c-one is the one i was thinking of going with.. since it looks to offer more stiffness, less flex...

but as billy said.. TRD happywink more people have it too.. though c-one does "look" to be stiffer??

Minnesota....Yaa!!!
I would go with the C-one cause it has more bling to it and could possibly more stiff than a TRD one.

I would say neither...I would go with hypermotive because it's easily removable and you can get it in different colors too thumbsup

yes, hypermotive is the way to go, since it can be easily removed just in case you have to carry lots of things in your trunk.

Yup, definitely go with Hypermotive 3pt if you think you'll ever need to fold the rear seats down to fit something in the car. 6 bolts and it's out, unlike the other bars where you have to remove all the trunk plastics to even get to the mounting bolts. The Hypermotive bar is very stiff, as well.

TRD rear upper is only a pain when you want to install the interior plastic as well...
