FSWERKS Lower Front Stress Bar - Ford Focus ST 2013-2017SKU: FS037K
The FSWERKS lower front stress bar is a simple bolt-on which mounts to the subframe between the two front control arms. It's the perfect choice for adding improved stability by reducing subframe flex under hard driving conditions. It's light-weight at only 2.4lbs and made from 1" heavy wall mandrel bent steel tubing, available in gloss black or silver powder coated finish. All bars are backed by a limited LIFETIME warranty against manufacturing defects and workmanship.
The original control arm bolts which secure the stress bar are designed to be used only once. However, the original bolts can be reused a few times before new ones are required.
New bolts = 110ft lbs + 90 degrees
Stock (reused) bolts = 125ft lbs

Fswerks lower stress bar, high quality,fast shipping
Performed as design. This is a very high quality piece. Im tyically very picky with aftermarker products. Alot of times you see flimsy designs with horrible fitment. Not with the FSwerks lower stress bar. Beefy design and fits great. Steering firmed up. Must have product.
A Must for a Twistie Junkie
Install was a breeze, even on jacks. The car feels connected to the road via rails. It has smoothed out the vibrations caused by my mountune roll restrictor. I have noticed an increase in wheel hop. I love it, and would definitely recommend it to anyone. And it looks good too!
FSWerks front lower stress bar
The front stress bar bolts onto the front lower control arm pivot bolts and helps to stiffen the sub frame against lateral loads (as in cornering). I had this mod done at the same time as Ford Racing springs and Bilstein B8s, as well as a rear shock tower brace, so I cannot comment on the performance of the front stress bar in isolation. The following is from an email I sent to Vik at FSWerks, who did the installation, following the mods: It drove very well on the way home, and earlier today after I finished installing the rear stress bar (looks very nice). It turns out the front alignment had changed very little from where it was set before. The alignment is as follows: Front left -1.2* camber, +4.5* caster; right -1.3* camber, +4.4* caster total front toe 0.0"; tire pressures 37 psi Rear left -1.5* camber; right -2.0* camber total rear toe 0.03125" (in); tire pressures 35 psi Steering response and turn in are noticeably better, steering feel is a bit better, the chassis takes a set more rapidly than before, and it seems to hook up a bit better exiting turns....it is a big step in the right direction.
Huge improvement when cornering
If you own an Focus ST, this will improve your your handling!!
