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.

Riding The Rails on my 2007 Focus Sport

If you've never driven a Focus of this era, then you can't truly appreciate the german feel of this car (Fords World Car platform) The combination of this Stress Bar with my Steeda stabilizer package on the front and rear of this little beauty has it riding on rails in the corners. No wallowing at all. The stabilizer itself adds an almost WRC look under the hood and color matches the color motif of this little car. A very good quality part at a fair price. Good Job FSWerks. https://www.facebook.com/100000498519074/videos/pcb.5659387960754432/3079055565642528

No Stress bar.

Fast shipping. Fast install. Welds are on point. Powder coat perfect. Responsive steering. Will be purchasing the lower stress bar soon.

Well worth it

easy installation, did notice it presses up on the brake fluid sensor, and fuel heat shield, but both were easily adjusted. Noticeable improvement to overall front end handling even on stock suspension. worth the purchase.

Excellent

Product well made and direct fit. I did just flip over the a/c lines brackets instead of bending them the full inch as instructions stated.

Put the upper and lower bars on my Ford focus wagon and it made a whole lot of difference.

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
