Were you able to get the bar for between the struts? I have been trying to for a year and cannot find it in stock anywhere.
The strut bars are made by Ultra Racing I believe. IMO strut bars and upgraded stabilizer bars do the same thing.

Strut Tower bar is a body stiffiner. To be honest I peronally dont believe they do much for a a street car. Sway bars actually work with the suspension more.

I stand corrected. I had upgraded sway bars on my Cobalt and loved them.

Sway bar stabilizer bar same thing or I believe ... its spring steel bar that is connected to both sides of typically the shock or control arm point so that as one side is loaded it essentially lifts on the opposing side .
strut tower brace bars basically tie the 2 tower tops together preventing flex.

Yup. Same thing. I've just preferred the term stabilizer bar.

STBs were literally an appearance mod on the Cobalt as they were already a very stiff car - I'm assuming the Cruze probably is similar, though I'm not entirely sure if it is.

Swaybar, Stabilizer Bar, also Anti-Sway Bar. Lotsa names! They make a huge impact on street driving, though a rear bar moreso than a front bar on a FWD car. The 1.25" rear bar on my Cobalt works wonders with the 24mm SS/SC FE5 front bar, but I would never want to go with a larger front bar.

I had Eibach's front bar on my Cobalt.I think it was 25 or 27 mm something like that. I had TTR's 25.4mm bar in the back.

Yeah, I recall those and the Progressives being larger than FE5 up front, but that's why I stayed away from them - a bit too large, IMO, for the front of a FWD car. Car doesn't need any help understeering, haha.

Ahh okay, the TTR bar was the 1" bar, which was equal to the Powell street bar. I have the 1.25" Hardcore bar, and then they still have a larger 1.5" XXX Bar.

Unexpected Update: I have a problem and I need some help to fix it. I ran out of space, character wise, in my signature for all my mods. :LOL:

Not the end of the world, I know, but I'm open to ideas to rework my signature if anyone has one. I'm not the creative type.

Remove the words pending installation and some of the unnecessary descript words on some of the components maybe and start one part of the list with ZZP - and ll the components leaving out the ZZP in front of each one separately

I guess it's better than my signature - ever since we switched to the new forum, I cannot edit it, because it's far longer than it can be, so I can't update anything because I'll have to make it way shorter. :ROFLMAO:
