[DML] Re: Strut Bar



I too installed Peter's strut bar and am very happy with it.

That they are Mike, mine is lower with the Grady shocks & springs. Before I
thought I would not feel any difference but after installing and driving the
steering/cornering feels so much tighter & responsive. The slop I didn't know was
there is now gone. I'm not saying that the lowering kit was sloppy, not at all.
Lowering the car to the "intended ride height" makes the car feel like a TOTALLY
different ride. All positive. I just didn't know that there was still a bit of 
play that could be improved upon with this bar!  

The luggage rack still stows nicely in the little groove between the bolt head
and cross bar. A little rubber bootie so it doesn't scratch & velcro under a tool
box keeps things in place when I drive like a mad man ;-)  Installation pics

Excellent instructions were provided and the whole installation took me less than
a half hour.

If your an avid driver like me who goes looking for those fun curvy roads, you
will love this addition.
