Bought and installed an RMM bar today (install was a pain int he ass since I had camber from my lowering spraings). No complaints at all, I could tell the difference in the steering instantly.

I have the APR front strut bar and it went on easily, and it looks really nice. There was a noticable difference and the suspension felt a lot harder and tight, the steering also felt more direct. I also have the TRD rear strut bar it looks nice also and it makes the celica more fun to drive.

I have the APR as well. It does improve cornering a bit.
