FSWERKS Upper Front Strut Stress Bar - Ford Focus Duratec 2.3L/2.0L 2003-2011SKU: FS033K
An upper-front stress bar is an essential bolt on for all street & competition Ford Focus cars. The bar's rigid design helps to reduce the roll and twist of the front sheet metal frame, and in doing so quickens steering response and improves turn-in. Construction consists of strong 14-gauge mandrel bent heavy wall 7/8" diameter steel tubing. The tubing is then welded to 1/8" laser cut steel mounting plates. Designed specifically around the constraints of US model cars, the bar requires no modification of surrounding components (ie: Brake booster, fuse box, air box) when used in conjunction with the FSWERKS Cool-Flo or the stock factory air box. Fits all Duratec 2.3L & 2.0L. The FSWERKS upper-front stress bar is available in your choice of Chrome/Clear Powdercoated Finish or colored powdercoated finish.
Torque nuts to 18ft lbs

No issues or problems, strait-up bolt on and go.
Easy to install and noticeably tightens up the car. I still need to do a lot of suspension work, but if you need somewhere to start: this is a great piece.
This item installed really easy and the red matched the infra-red color of my focus perfectly. Atheistic wize, it is amazing! I installed this along with CAI, and the steeda sway bar kit. The chassis is noticably stiffer. I will update this review once I have done some track time to provide more detailed responses
So far so good! The handling feels much tighter and responsive. Did both front and back at same time. Definitely recommend if your tired of all the body roll.
