Definately lower it, but do it conservatively, no more than 1.5"

Regarding the front strut bar:

Search the site, 'cause it's been asked many times before. Basically, it both hurts and helps; it will make the car's chassis stiffer in turns and give it a little sharper cornering, but it also increases the tendency for the car to understeer. You may want to think about a rear strut bar instead.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think that understeer comes only because you go through the corners faster..
I have a tanabe strut tower bar and a cusco lower arm bar and I love them...of course I have also the TRD 3 points rear bar... wink
