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!
Great photo! Thanks Ignacio :-)
This is a great product at a great price. The installation was very simple as well took less than an hour to install. Thanks FSWERKS for making such great products.
Thank you :-)
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
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.
Thank you John :-)
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.
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.
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
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
Thank you Lucas :-)
Stiffens the ride, m in and out of turns you can feel a huge difference.
Excellent, very happy with it!
Top quality product, shipped to australia in no time, easy install
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)
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.
Thanks for your track feedback Jeff :)
Great bar no longer have the rear end feeling loose on high speed turns ST feels secure and planted
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.
My experience with FSWERKS has been great, the item that I purchased was sent out to my home in Australia super fast, I received the item in just under 2 weeks. The product itself I’m super happy with and have installed it in my car. A big thank you. Kind regards, Blake
High recommend. Stiffness up the suspension
The bar itself was great. Well made. The only trouble I ran into was the plastic covers on my car.
It's was a great experience, the staff are super cool they were able to answer all the questions I had about my ST.
Took a bit longer for the install because I failed to read what everyone had already said about the carpet. That said, it was STILL a simple and fairly painless install. The bar looks great and I can definitely notice the back-end is more rigid through fast corners Great mod for the money - Highly recommend!
