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.

Note:
Torque nuts to 18ft lbs

Feels great

This plus the rear stress bar makes it corner so much better, the upper front on mine was rubbing the fuel hose almost so maybe protect that if you notice it may rub with engine movement.

Great addition!

This is a great addition to your focus! My only wish was for it to come in a nice green color, but I could always paint it.

Super Easy

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.

Great buy

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

Super happy with purchase!

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.

Excellent

Installé sur mon Focus ST 2007, un look puissant, agrément au handling. J'ai aussi acheté celui de derrière et je ne regrette vraiment rien. Expédition soigneuse, service impeccable. Thanks again guys...

Translated; Installed on my Focus ST 2007, a powerful look, pleasant handling. I also bought the back one and I don't really regret anything. Careful shipping, impeccable service. Thank you Bruno :)

Tightend up front end nicely...

Made the front end feel much tighter. Took out some of the shutter when cornering. Worth it even on a wagon !

Road Race Ready!!

Best bang for your buck item for sure! I installed on my 07 Focus and it was truly surprising the difference in handling it made! The car feels so much tighter and "planted" going around turns. If you want that race car handling feel that youve always dreamed of, buy this strut brace!

Just a little more precise

Which is all this car needed in terms of handling. With the addition of Michelin Pilot Super Sports and KYB AGX dampers this Focus SES goes from a good sport sedan to a very, very good sport sedan. For it's sport touring intent the FSWERKS upper strut bar allows this car to keep up with BMW three series in the twisties quite nicely.

Quality Sway Bar

Item was shipped in about 24 hours, quick services. Installation of the sway bar only took about 15 minutes total. This sway bar is solid and holds the chassis against cornering forces well. The car corners noticeably flatter through both sharp and sweeping corners.

Good bang for the buck

Very easy to install, excellent fitment . Really stiffened up the car and seamed to reduce body roll. Great part and service from FS

Upper stress bar hole not drilled properly

Shipping was quick and easy looks great had to make the holes bigger and use washer because the hole were to close together. Other than that quality produce! I already brought the h&r springs, the coolflo intake, and brake kit!

Awesome.

I bought this thinking it wasn't going to make much of a difference performance-wise, however, cornering feels way stiffer, and even going down straight roads it feels way better. Highly recommend, took me approximately 2 minutes to install
