Will Only Buy Cusco From Now On...
Prestone 4 days ago
Excellent product! Took less than 15 minutes to install and test out. The instructions are in Japanese so watch any installation video on YouTube and you will be set to go. I tower looks great upon arrival and looks even better after installation. Car seems more composed during cornering. Does not seem to lower body roll, but appears to keep everything planted, just as it is advertised to do! Fit my '08 Impreza sedan without any issues, definitely recommend. I will be using Cusco for all my upgrades and additions as I can afford them!

Great Product, Well Made, Easy to Install

The install of this product is very easy and takes less than 10 minutes. The Strut Tower is very well made and fits almost perfectly. I did need a few light taps from a rubber mallet to get some of the studs through the holes. The fitment in the engine bay is flawless, Looks like it should be there. For the performance aspect of this product I noticed a slight increase in body stiffness and a smoother transition into a sharp turn.

great fit; easy install

great fit and very easy install. It was packaged well and arrived with no scratches, dings, etc. Besides installing quickly and looking great, it actually makes the front end feel stiffer. Always good when something does as it is supposed to, eh?

Excellent product...

Leaves nothing to be desired in terms of build quality and fit. Installation was a breeze. Car definitely feels a bit more 'composed', but could be my imagination ( a bit more time will tell). Only minus...the instructions are all in what I'm guessing is Japanese. Not that you need them anyway. I used factory recommend torque specs (15 lb-ft) for re-installing the strut mount screws.

great addition

Gets rid of the slop during the turns. Glad i got it. Like every other review, install was a piece of cake. Thank you rallysport, everything I've ordered in the past has came quickly and is of great quality! And my car has plenty more that i want done.


  • AnswerQ: Fittment with Aftermarket TMICs  eod13x 8 days ago

    Have you test fitted this bar with any Aftermarket TMICs? If not, do you have any testimonials of customers who have? If so, which TMIC was it tested with?

    • A: We are unable to confirm compatibility with aftermarket TMICs. I recommend referring to NASIOC threads to see what TMICs others are running with this brace.

  • AnswerQ: Balance between front and back sti 2012 sedan  Malammadi 6 months ago

    Hi, I have 22mm sway bars front and back and am wondering if I install only front strut bar would this cause understeer or un balanced control. Also would please like advice if it will be better to get front and back strut bar instead of front only and how that will impact performance. Thanks rsd for all the help

    • A: A strut tower bar does not effect bias between the front and rear wheels like a swaybar does. It helps tie in voids in the chassis and reinforces it to prevent torsion.

  • AnswerQ: Default Torque of Cusco Hardware  Fd0ubleo99620 1 year ago

    Is it necessary to retorque the cusco hardware to 40.6 foot lbs, or does it come that way from the factory?

    • A: You will need to torque the hardware after installation and you will more than likely need to loosen the bolts that connect the bar to the brackets to align the brackets to the correct angle.

  • AnswerQ: color of the bar  j_revlock 1 year ago

    I see some of the pictures have a blue bar as well as blue mounts. Do you guys sell those? thanks

    • A: The blue color you are seeing on the bar is the protective film that Cusco puts on the strut bar from the factory. Cusco does not offer a blue bar at this time.
