Solid parts, solid value

The rear stress bar was worth every penny, it looks and feels very well manufactured and was easy to install. I haven't been able to track test it yet but the car immediately feels more stable during spirited road driving. I've also got FSWerks' lower front stress bar and I can't wait to see how these work together for the autocross season. FSWerks knocks it out of the park again!

Stress Bar

For the price it's a great piece, you have to remove everything in the trunk to install it but its pretty straight forward. I'm very happy with the quality I highly recommended it!

Best Stress Bar and Best Value

Simple and quick to install, great build quality. Makes a noticeable difference. Compared to other really bulky and heavy bars around this was the best since I get to keep my cargo space and you can’t beat the price! Highly recommend

Great addition

The strut bar is great and feels extremely stable around corners and is a very noticeable difference at high speed. Installation was easy and replaced the sketchy OEM strut bolts with nice bolts that feel much more secure. I would definitely recommend this strut bar to any ST owner.

Piece of cake

Install was flawless and my car handles so much better in those hard dips and turns. Noticed a difference immediately after installing. Adds rigidness to the rear and overall tightens everything up.

This bar is fantastic!

I bought the rear sway bar from steeda and didnt notice anything at all in handling increases at higher speed driving. Bought the rear strut bar from fswerks, fixed the understeer issue immediately. Its not very noticeable at lower speeds but once you hit long sweeping corners you definitely feel the bar keeping the rear stable through cornering. Highly recommended for spirited driving or track use.

Did more than I thought it would

This is apparently what my build was missing. Tightened the rear end up nicely. Feels more stable on the highway and long sweeping turns. Build: Bilstein Sport shocks, Ford racing springs, rear sway bar, front traction bar

FS Werks Rear Stress Bar

Highly recommended, tightens up the rear end of the car substantially, def a mod you can feel in the twisties. Did the job on ramps in no time, no plastic or carpet removal needed. Recommend for any ST/RS owner. Thanks FS Werks

A must have for the ST

Quality product! Tightened up the rear of the car and keeps the car from wanting to drift at high speeds through a curve. I had purchased a Steeda bar and it was crap and that’s all I’ll say about that. If you’re on the fence go with FSWerks, you won’t be disappointed. Install was a breeze(already installed one that wouldn’t fit)

A must have

I was very happy I had this part installed on the car by fswerks before my trip to willow springs. The car performed better than I could have imagined along with the front lower stress bar. My ST performed amazingly on the track in the high speed turns at willow.

Handling

I purchased this and a rear strut tower bar and my handling has never been better. On top of the tighter chassis I haven’t felt any torque steer in the smallest amount. Highly recommend for any ST owner, without this lower tie bar and rear strut tower bar you will never be able to get the full power out of your ST in a safe and controlled manner.

Great product

The bar itself was great. Well made. The only trouble I ran into was the plastic covers on my car.
