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.

Happiness in a strut brace.
Got my order from FSWerks on time. The items were actually packed liked the person shipping it cared. The feel, fit and finish of the brace itself is nice. Needs to hold up to salt and snow. Worth refinishing when the time comes. It installed without much of a fuss. The only negative thus far is that I can hear all the other suspension stuff that needs to be replaced :D
Fit right in no problem. The bar was instantly noticeable while driving. Tightened my steering and noticed a reduction in bodyroll while cornering. Even if you're just a casual daily driver I recommend this strut bar. Very pleased.
Easy Install. Feels More Nimble.
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 :-)
Terrific. Perfect fit and sure
Terrific. Perfect fit and sure improved handling.
Fits good, looks great! Required a little bit of prying to get all the holes lined up, but too be expected on a car that’s not exactly spring fresh anymore. :-)
Great simple upgrade
Easy to install
This is easy to install and if you like the turns like me you will feel the difference. Steering is more responsive. Love it.
Looks awesome, Easy to install, Can't wait ti rip around the track

Front Stress Bar for a 2002 SVT Focus
Excellent. Raj in sales knew what he was talking about. As a road racer of several decades, the FSWORKS front stress bar works. The bar enhances handling, especially over rough and uneven services. This is the only stress bar I was able to find from a major aftermarket supplier that actually fits an untouched engine bay without any modifications. Very simple/quick installation.
Thanks very much for your feedback Ira :-) Regards, Raffi

Front Strut Stress Bar
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.
FSWERKS Front Stress Bar
Great product, fitment is perfect, almost looks factory. Stiffens up the front end quite a bit

It looks perfect in my engine bay and the handling has improved alittle
I took my 03 focus for a mountain drive. I can take turns 10 mph faster. Highly recommend
Great strut tower brace!
Very Good. This brace fit perfectly. I had purchased one recently for Steeda that did not fit my car. I had to pay for return shipping!!! Anyway, the FSWerks bar was a perfect fit. I highly recommend.
Must have for the canyon carvers
It looks great! And it works as intended. I would make sure you have the right tools and a buddy as it will make the job easier
