As the title says. ^ I've been looking for a way to reduce body roll and trying to get my ride to be a little stiffer. and I've been looking for strut bars everywhere but I think they would have to be custom welded.

strut bars in my knowledge to not help body lean, they increase the chassis rigidity. they also don't necessarily make the ride stiffer either, just w'e you feel from one wheel will be transferred to the other sides more noticeably. so example, hit a decent sized pot hole and the whole car will feel like you hit a pot hole with all 4 wheels. if you're looking to fix body lean get stiffer struts and sway bars. i have never heard a complaint from anyone who invested in koni yellows for struts. it would be a good change if you were looking to fix body lean.

back to your question

http://www.aceengineering.ca/ <--- i have one of these, quite expensive but i think a good bang for their buck. used to have a thread on the for sale section but can't find it anymore, quite a few member's have these.

this is ryan's thread that fresh was talking about. a lot of members have gotten these and are happy with the results and you can't beat the price.

cusco also makes a front & rear strut bar but some members have had fitment issues with the front bar regarding something on their intake mani i forgot what. link is here

power of search function and google baby

The cusco fitment issue is that they are not designed for US spec cars and interfere with thye EGR system. At least I think that's the issue...

As far as swaybars go most guys just upgrade the rear amd leave the front stock or simply remove it. For the non turbo models I like the suspension technique sway bar as it is adjustable, and larger than the non adjustable whiteline bar.
