So i bought some Chinese specials splitter rods off amazon for like 15 bucks. BAD DECISION. Had to pull the bumper off and it was bitch. Long story short the hardware rusted to shit after about 3 weeks fml. Trying to find some good ones that use full billet aluminum and stainless steel hardware. Lmk what you have used/recommend.

Couldn’t you make them on your own? They look really simple to make with proper tools.

Thanks alot man. Not a bad price either. What is the wrench flats option all about
You’re welcome. There are flat spots on the rods that you can use a wrench on to adjust. Not necessary as they are easily adjusted by hand. I opted for them just because I liked the look.
Also, the bolts I ordered were too long for my set up so I ended up using some stainless washers to fill the extra space. Not noticeable and doesn’t affect anything.

I'd pay the extra just to get the sturdy ones just so I can install it on the chassis. Bumper rods are rice LOL and doesn't help with downforce

@ilipac - digging the rgb vibes, would be sick if it's Bluetooth compatible, bring out that inner gamer LOL.


Back on topic: honestly with splitter rods and splitter kits, it's only works best if your splitter is bigger than your bumper and it is accompanied by a wing, canards, and side skirts. Then again I'm basing this off of time attack. Haven't seen a proper vehicle daily with a time attack set up, kids nowadays would say it's rice since they don't understand downforce and all that fun stuff

RGB vibes? lol it's just colorshift vinyl pinstriping. And this new "lip" extends past the bumper and past the edges of my tires haha - it's definitely pushing air down and around. I will be either getting a aeroflow dynamics splitter or a S Factor Fabrication one (with chassis mounted rods). This one was the cheapest front lip on ebay and I wanted to guinea pig it!
