Cusco front strut brace
clevor2v35205 4 months ago
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
Jesse 2 years ago
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.

Will Only Buy Cusco From Now On...
Prestone 3 years 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
Korths 3 years ago
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
stevesammut5307133 3 years ago
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...
dlewis1 3 years ago
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.

Perfect Fit

This bar is super stylish under the hood, fits with or without top mount intercooler and its just a blast to ride around with. i right away noticed the difference it made soon as i backed off the curb of my driveway. it makes the car much stiffer in high speed curves. A+

I was so surprised at how much better the car takes to the corners, especially the highway on/off ramps. Highly recommended and installation was a breeze.

2011 WRX Hatch, great strut bar. Much stiffer ride and improves response quite a bit I found. And once I receive my sways should make for a nice complete setup for what I need.

Cusco Front Strut Tower Bar Type OS 2013 STI
adcecil 4 years ago
Perfect fitment made the install very simple and fast. I only needed a few hand tools. This was possibly the easiest thing I have ever done. I did feel a definite difference in the front end. The car seems more sorted, front end is more balanced, turns in better and even rides better. Honestly I am not sure why the manufacture didn’t include one of these with the STI. Rallysportdirtect was enormously helpful, the ordering process was seamless and I look forward to dealing with them again (not just because they sell cool stuff).

Solid, notice a slight improvement in handling (already have engine mounts, transmission mount, pitch stop mount, front under brace, rear A braces, Cusco steering rack, and front and rear sways and endlinks). Worth the money spent IMHO.

Great suspension mod. Do not hesitate!
world1 level1 5 years ago
First off, great suspension mod for a 2011 N/A Impreza. Ok, I have been putting off this strut bar for some time, however, I finally decided to go ahead and buy it. So far I only have the front. I do have front and rear sway bars and with this addition the cars grip is outstanding and a lot of body roll has been eliminated. The install is probably the easiest thing I have ever done. Seriously. I came home from work at nine at night, opened the package, broke the easiest factory bolts loose, put the strut bar on and made sure it would fit before moving on and torqued the bolts back on. I did not have any problems with fitting the strut bar on, it seemed like it dropped on just right, and once you push it down to make the bolts line up it fit right away. All in all, the install took some 40 minutes, and that is because I am being careful not to bang things around and to check the fitment, I also took a phone call, so I suppose without distractions and a quick fitment it could easily be done in 20 minutes or less. All in all the install is the easiest thing you can do, the factory bolts came off so easy a child could do it, and the handling difference with just the front is so noticeable, I would imagine the rear would make the difference even better.
