Just got this done last weekend finally have time to take some picture.

the Strut Bar is from a RSX Rear Strut, and the bracket is Homemade(Myself) will fit FG2 as well

Pretty got this idea from the J's racing Rear Strut Bar for the FD2

Enjoy the picture,

not so sure how much of a "brace" it is as it appears to be sitting on the rubber bushings, but props for doing it yourself.. it looks like an off-the-shelf part :)

At the very least you are helping to stimulate the economy, because you certainly aren't going to stimulate handling that way.

this is a strut brace - the above is an expensive piece of metal.

:yeahthat:

considering there's no "strut" there just the damper (the spring is under the car) these things really make me laugh (and cost valuable trunk space) there are absolutely zero sideways loads on the stock damper and the part in the first post wouldn't even make a good chassis brace.

looks like that brace jrotax101 posted is stable since you'd have to drill into the sides to brace it more..looks like hes in the process of doing that cause he's center punching the hole
