sounds like a good price. i dunno how functional a $30 strut bar would be..especially APC.

my experience in modding cars has taught me this:

celicas are a great quality car (and not incredibly cheap) so i would rather spend more $$$ on quality parts than save a buck on whatever the product might be. look for something on sale or check out the APR Strut Bar in the ECelica store.

Not to discourage you at all though. Whatever you find for your car that makes you happy it's all good! thumbsup

hey stephen i completely agree w/u. personally i hate apc with passion. i don't know y, but i think all the cars that i c completely riced out have huge apc logos all over them. but my buddy had an apc bar on his accord and he said that it was great. i did some research on the apc bar, and it all was pretty much very good. the price used to be around $100, but lately due to the competition apc has lowered the price. now a days you can get an apc bar online n e where from $55 to $60 shipped. so i just can't pass this $30 deal. but i understand ur concern. thnx

no worries bro. you have a good point too...APC is a huge company so it's easier for them to drop prices like that, and unfortunately APC has earned a bad rep for "rice"

...but with few exceptions, APC's demo vehicles always turn out looking HOT!

make sure to post pics once you get it thumbsup

Here is the review on that bar (before you even think about buying it)...
https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthrea...=true#Post37460

NOTE: package only includes BAR - nothing else... no battery tie-down, no tools, no instructions... no nothing

and good luck trying to rotate the endplates if needed because you have aftermarket suspension (springs/shocks) rofl rofl the endplates do NOT rotate...

Quote:
that bar truly is a piece of sh!t...on some celicas it fits nicely, on others, it don't fit worth jack...i modified one to fit onto my friend's celica...get a steel drill bit larger than the original holes and start boring them out slowly. don't go too wide at first, just do it little by little till it fits...good luck...

oh btw...just return it and get the apr!!!
