Features & Product Details

Cusco is one of the pioneering companies based out of Japan that has invested countless hours of research, design, and engineering to develop quality suspension and performance products that will improve your driving experience. Some of the fasted cars around the world who compete in time attack, time trials, and other racing avenues will more than likely have a Cusco product on their car.

This component is the Cusco Power Brace Rear Member. The intended purpose of this part is to improve the chassis integrity by using a lightweight multi-point brace that will improve the rigidity of the vehicle under high-performance driving conditions. This means that this would make for a solid upgrade for those of you who participate in auto-x, weekend track days, or the occasional spirited canyon run. 

This power brace will come powder-coated in Cusco's flagship blue color, and it will come ready for the installation. 

Note: May have fitment issues with some aftermarket exhausts.

Doesnt clear exhaust 7 months ago
Andre.Chin07601
While this is a wonderful part, its design leaves much to be desired. The center of this bar will hit just about any aftermarket exhaust pipe. I've resorted to getting longer exhaust hangers and slightly adjusting my exhaust hanger angles to make it work. Cusco could have easily built this with a reinforced hump in the middle to allow clearing exhaust pipes. Sometimes even the best companies fail miserably.

works better than i expected 2 years ago
rasta
Don't sleep on the Cusco braces. I feel the braces are a necessity to stop the car from moving all over the place mainly on bumpy or uneven roads but they also help on flat roads for the car to go straight. I installed this and the rear subframe braces and the car finally goes straight. Maybe I have a little suspension issue but these solved it! I feel as confident as ever in my car now. Only need the center flood brace to complete my bracing. For me confidence in $45,000 car is a must. Get the braces! Feel good!

Fits GP-chassis Impreza (MY2012 and newer) and XV Crosstrek (MY2013 and newer) 3 years ago
AWDfreak
I installed this on my 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek 2.0i Premium and it did help make my Crosstrek feel a bit more tied-down. I installed this with a variety of Cusco products already on and based on the test drives of others driving my car, the braces (this included) do have a bit of an effect. Not the best bang for your buck, but if enjoying your Subaru in twisty mountain roads and canyon roads is crucial, getting chassis bracing such as Cusco's products may help.

Solid 5 years ago

Strong and sturdy and super quick install with a lift. Compliments the other suspension upgrades on my WRX. Price is very reasonable as well.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: Q300  Carlos 14 GRB 3 years ago

    would this clear a Q300 exhausts on a hatch back style?
  • Q: Fitment on 08 to 14 Chassis  evaradar3 years ago

    My mechanic was informing me that this will have fitment issues on the 08 to 14 chassis? Apparently, he told me that Cusco states "Powerbrace: 692 492 RM – Spare tire well conflicts with this straight Rear Member Powerbrace piece. This is due to the whole new rear monocoque design." Can anyone confirm/clarify? Thanks

      A:  We have not had any fitment issues reported other than some aftermarket exhausts with stock length hangers.

  • Q: Use in conjuction with AVO sway bar brace?  jteran53 years ago

    Am I able to use this with the AVO sway bar brace? The AVO brace mounts in the same location and I am not sure if installing the Cusco Brace under it would affect either of the braces.
  • Q: cusco powerbrace rear subaru  buc20135 years ago

    does this fit a 2011 impreza no turbo 2.5i hatch?????
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Cusco has only confirmed fitment on the WRX/STi models, and we have not tested it on any cars outside the ones listed in the confirmed application listing to state otherwise.
