    Definetely made a positive difference on my vert. I live on a Cul de Sac and am always turning around. I have a 3 point model, and it really firmed things up. Also have the UMI Weld in SFCs too.

    My only downside to the 3 point STB is I'm convinced it causes some creaking in the dash (especially noticeable when it's cold).

    Where did you get that it would be a lot cheaper for me to order in the us pay the money exchange and get it shipped. They do look cool for $100 Canadian or les arrived at my door I would pay for that for looks.

    I bought mine off of e-bay a while ago. Black powdercoated 2-point STB and it was right around $60. The seller on ebay has a couple for sale right now with a $63.08 Buy it Now price. There are several others in the $80 - $90 shipped range on ebay.

    I have to drive on some crappy roads, and after installing mine there is MUCH less vibration in the wheel. i can def tell. I had to pull it off a few weeks ago, and forgot to put it back on, it only took about a mile down the road before i realized it.

    it feels like it helps with body roll a little, but not worth noting.

    I think its makes your ride a little more comfortable, but performance-wise it doesnt seem to do much

    Ordered mine off ebay, two point umi it was like $60-70. I think it's more of a looks thing and a good place to put your hand on when working under the hood.

    it is good for that but it sits right over the oil fill cap and that trans dipstick, making them a little hard to get to. i had to take mine off to change my plugs, and to add trans additive.
