BLEMISHED FSWERKS Upper Front Strut Stress Bar - Ford Focus Duratec 2.3L/2.0L 2003-2011SKU: FS033K-BLEM
BLEMISHED BAR - Bar has imperfections/scratches/scuffs and is sold as-is, no returns.
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

I needed this to replace a homely no-name one. I've had the lower front and rear FSWERKS bars for years and collectively they really eliminate a lot of flex in the chassis (and some squeaks) in my '07 Focus. Bar looks great (blue)....can't find the "blem." Shipping was reasonable (AK), quick, and very well-packed. After 13 years of doing business, FSWERKS has never failed to deliver!
Had to grind the holes out to get to fit in place
Works awesome, awesome fit
