So I have decided to get one of these bars for my car and I was just curious as to what everyone's opinions were on them and which one is "better". They both seem to be very similar and within the same price range (for me at least), so which one do you guys like better?
It's all about the $$$....whichever one is cheaper.
The upper picture is NOT a Subaru.
The lower pictured arm bar(which I have) will not fit if the 'U-brace' is removed(mine is removed) without shimming the foreward attach points. I would like to get one that fits with the 'U-brace' removed and no shimming.
what exactly did the bar do for that car's handling? i'm curious, since i've haven't heard anything from anyone running one of these. mos people i know have opted for an ALK instead... just curious, not hijacking the thread.
huh, for some reason i thought that the cusco bar couldn't be run with the ALK. if it can, i can definitely see the benefits of fitting it to the car, though it would be nice to be able to keep the subframe....

OK...here it is......The Cusco v2 lower arm bar and an ALK and the 'sub-frame' all work just fine together. I know, I did it.
This is difficult to explain, because of all the possible combinations of hardware, but any one piece or any combination is possible.
It would seem that there are several versions of the Cusco bar and other hardware, and I could type for a week and never be able to make anybody understand the what and why....sorry, but it is pointless to try.
Originally posted by AWD 20T Well since no one really has any comments on the JIC, I guess I'll have to buy it and try it for myself...
I thought the JIC one looked nice too when I was looking @ vivid's site...but then someone said it was off an EVO. So since Vivid has it under the Subaru suspension area JIC must make one. Give it a try and let me know. I currently have the STi lower arm brace but it only attaches to the sub-frame in two locations and ties into the center section that you use to jack up the front of the car.
