    Strut Brace

    Was looking to invest in a strut brace but some say it's pointless. If I ordered one it would be a hotchkis brand. Worth it or no?

    Very much agree. Just don't spend it on a MAF.

    I have a STB...it sits in the shed.

    I think they look nice too but for $200 i'd like it to do something drastic lol. Steering has good response as it is.

    UMI kicks ass.

    But get subframe connectors before a worthless STB.

    What is the spacing I need to look for when ordering TTMs? And what are the size limits for front and rear? I was told 17's in front and 18's in rear, but that was a long time ago.

    Did the STB and sub frame connectors at the same time. My car had some rattling noises in the dash area that went away after the install. Had about 75k on the car at the time of install. Went with the UMI equipment.
