Ultra Racing front strut bar *Review*

So, I got my bar in yesterday and I'm pretty sure it took me longer to unwrap it from all the packaging then it did for me to actually install it. Very straight forward.

Driving impressions: I haven't had too much time to push it through some corners yet, but even on things like a spirited drive through on on ramp or off ramp the steering and overall does feel more solid and provides better feedback through the steering wheel as such. Nothing earth shattering of course, but noticeable.

I have also noticed that while driving in a straight line the car doesn't want to wander as much or as easily.

I don't even mind the white on black...hehe

All in all...great product. :thumbsup:

Aren't the front struts welded to the firewall? (like they were in the cobalt and other models). If so, you wouldn't notice any/much difference. The Rear bars are where it's at!

Shawn, with the design of the front strut bar, it does more work than you think. the design of the mount actually takes up the slop of the top mount and gives it more pressure to tighten it up, in turn making the steeing feel tighter and walk less from side to side, the rear does help, the front makes the steering a lot tighter, it is noticable, especially when you drive with it on for a while and take it off, I tried it last weekend and had to get it back on asap.

Dwnshft: thanks for the review.

Yes, I did the preorder. Shipping was UBER fast too!

My only complaint was the brokerage fees! $50 bucks on a $150 purchase! But, its a great product so I don't mind...much. lol
Don't you love living in Canada just for that reason? Hahaha
