Default New strut tower bar for the Cube

I noticed nothing out there yet so I put this together and am doing a group buy on them. I am offering them for $185 + $25 shipping to US and $35 shipping to Canada powder coated silver. I have 2 left from the first 10 built. I will be starting another batch end of next week.

Pardon the question, but what is it for?

It is designed to take some of the flex out of the front of the Cube. When cornering, braking, and driving on rough roads you will get twist and flex in the front end which causes your tire contact to change based on the conditions. With the Strut tie bar the flex in the front end can be lessened making the car feel more stable in corners and under braking.

yep^

A strut bar is designed to reduce this strut tower flex by tying two parallel strut towers together. This transmits the load of each strut tower during cornering via tension and compression of the strut bar which shares the load between both towers and reduces chassis flex.

Default Hammer or Impact wrench?

Me again. How is installed? Can a relative novice do it?

Thanks again

13mm socket for 4 bolts and 10 minutes of your life is about all you will need. Maybe 15minutes if you stop for a cold one in the middle.

Even time for a cold one? Great. So I'm replacing existing bolts?

Not replacing just removing and reinstalling in same holes.





The 2 gold color bolts in each picture.
