or you can try Tanabe or Hypermotive.

APR is fine. about that problem - it was jsut that it made a creaking sound. all you need to do is place some sort of grease to keep it from creating sounds.

Got APR. No problems at all. Took 20 minutes to put on. Very noticeable difference in handling on corners with it on. Previously I only had TRD springs. I like taking on ramps, off ramps, and transitions on the freeway.

I can vouch for the MR Strut Bar. Sits perfectly, does not rub. Also fits well with my Optima Red Top + Stock battery tie down. Can't ask for anything more for a cheap $50 bucks mod.

Believe it or not the APC strut bar is also plenty nice for our cars. It's designed extremely similar to the RMM, but like 1/3 the price. It's discontinued though, so you'd have to buy it from a private seller.

Hypermotive strut bar I wouldn't recommend tongue there have been some reports of people able to bend it with their hands.. though does have a nice bling to it thumbsup

Tanebe idunnorather get the APR since its almost the same price and comes with a battery tie down bar and has less flex points as there are no welds happywink
