... sleep laughsilly

I've done the reasearch.. and i've tried and tested 3 on my car.. almost tested a 4th (brashboy) but was happy with carbing spineyes

most cost effective..
APR
https://www.celicahobby.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=26&products_id=124
3 piece system but no welds = less chance of flex

RMM slightly heavier thatn APR but nice since it's stiff but has those welds that could possibly flex..
http://www.suprastore.com/rmmfronstrut.html APC has a similar copycat design but has fitment issues..

Carbing (profile <--has some pics) the best of the two due to its light weight nearly only 2lbs! and does the job of holding the car firm. JDM tasty but good luck finding one i bought mine used..

not sure about Hotchkins some have reported it breaking confused do a search you may find it ...
http://www.suprastore.com/hotsporcampl.html

imo..i wouldn't go for..
- Tanebe is okay but same price range as APR though is a 3 piece system but had welds tongue
http://www.suprastore.com/tanfronstrut.html

- Hypermotive has bling thumbsup but has a great deal of flex.. some say they are able to bend the bar with their own hands.. also its really pricey.. http://www.hypermotive.net/celfusb.htm

-Megan tongue has a design/look of a hypermotive and Tanebe bar spineyes

and again my pics are one of those first three but i'd say just go for APR happywink

i'll sell you my TRD rear upper strut bar. it's like brand new, never installed. i just hate the idea of cutting interior plastic. i've tanabe front upper and megan rear upper. you can't really feel any difference until you add some sway bars...
