FSWERKS Upper Front Strut Stress Bar - Ford Focus SPI/Zetec/SVTSKU: FS030
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 SPI, Zetec, and SVT. The FSWERKS upper-front stress bar is available in your choice of Chrome/Clear Powdercoated Finish or colored powdercoated finish.

Looks good, helps with body roll.
As advertised fit like a glove. Well made well coated
I'm not sure how much of a difference it makes on the road, but car is a bit quicker on track. And it is well priced and easy to install.
Thank you Nicholas :-)
I have a 2003 Focus SVT which still goes well. I guess over the years metal fatigue can slowly set in because when I fitted the stress bar it felt like the steering was rejuvenated. I was surprised how noticeable the improvement was.
Great product, fitment is perfect, almost looks factory. Stiffens up the front end quite a bit
