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 particular component is the Cusco Type OS Front Strut Tower Bar. The intended purpose of this bar is to reduce strut tower flex by linking the two strut towers together. The benefit is reducing chassis flex under hard cornering for improved handling and improved driver feedback. A simple upgrade for those of you who enjoy high-performance driving conditions such as auto-x or a spirited canyon run.

This strut brace features durable aluminum construction with a polished bar, and the end plates will come in Cusco's flagship blue color. Hardware will be included to make this strut bar ready for the installation.

Cusco front strut brace 7 months ago
clevor2v35205
As usual no problems rally sport direct. Just get torque specs for your car and install in less then 30 min. Looks and works great. I have a rear shock tower brace also again it’s awsome. So buy some parts and have some fun.

Solid Upgrade for my 2013 Subaru WRX Hatch 2 years ago
Jesse
I found a good deal on Ebay for the front and rear strut tower braces. I installed the front first then the rear. The fit is perfect with the stock intercooler and you can definitely feel a difference in the front of the car. There seems to be slightly less body flex/body roll when cornering. Since Subarus have a macpherson strut in the front and a double wishbone in the rear, the front made the most difference between the two. With both of them on the car feels a lot more rigid in a good way. There is still body roll since I haven't done swaybars yet, but this is a solid upgrade that doesnt have any drawbacks. The front strut tower brace is definitely worth buying, the rear isn't really necessary, but still ads something.

Honestly, I didn't notice a huge difference while driving or taking corners. But when going over bumps it's a little more stiff.

Will Only Buy Cusco From Now On... 3 years ago
Prestone
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 3 years ago
Korths
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.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: cusco fitment   dom27104 months ago

    i have a crawford aos is it confirmed that it will fit with the aos installed on my car
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Unfortunately we are not able to confirm fitment with those two parts together. They will more than likely not mount properly without modification.

  • Q: Painting it  Arossteven2 years ago

    I want this bar to match the engine bay in my 2014 Subaru WRX. I was thinking of getting it powder coated black, but bring that's it's made out of aluminum.. Is this a bad idea? I've heard powder coating could weaken the metal or something.. Any thoughts? Thanks!
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  It's very common on tons of aluminum parts to be powder coated, and I do not think you will have any issues with powder coating this to match your engine bay.
