    They all basically do the same thing but I like my Ultra Racing bar. It's a steel, one piece, powder coated bar that gets the job done. The white powder coated look may not be that exciting to look at but who really sees it, right? I also had a Sirimoto and the quality and sturdiness wasn't as good.

    I just got one from Megan Racing as I have heard good things and was a slightly cheaper than the Sirimoto, Cusco and Tanabe it was $160.00CDN tax in. It was also nice I could get it from the shop I deal with in the East end of Toronto instead of ordering online with the other options as I was having trouble sourcing one other than online.

    I went with tenabe because you can make adjustments for a perfect fit to your car. none of the other brands were that way

    I personally would go with front and rear sway bar setup instead of strut bar. I don't feel any difference with the strut bar.

    I got it at a place called Grounded Conceptz I would include the link for their web page but I am at work and their site is blocked at my workplace.

    I was thinking I need one of these and a rear sway bar now that I'm tuned. They help tighten up the steering right? And does the Ultra Racing bar only come in white?

    I just bought and installed the Ultra Racing bar. So far as I know; it's only available in white. I've added strut bars to my Hondas in the past. And this experience was the same. I dunno all the technical stuff. But it's just a better, more defined steering feel. And it feels like there's less 'mush' or 'body roll' when I take a corner. Even without a tune (like me); it's just such a better feel. Good luck.

    Ok, let me try to explain. I kinda of consider myself the king of front strut bars cause I put them on all my cars. :)

    When you go over bumps or make quick lanes changes or do hard cornering, there is some movement in the front strut towers. A strut bar is used to limit those geometry changes. The stiffer the bar, the better, basically. That's why I like the solid one piece bars.

    With a good strut bar in place, the front end will feel a bit more solid over speed bumps and such. The steering often feels a bit more precise. The car will do noticeably better when making quick left-right (or right-left lol) lane change maneuvers, too.

    But, one thing a front strut bar won't do is reduce body roll. You need to upgrade your rear sway bar to do that.

    And yes, UR bars and braces only come in their trademark white powder coat.

    For the money, my big 3 suspensions mods are:

    1. Better tires
    2. Bigger rear sway bar (but not too big)
    3. Solid one piece front strut bar

    Hope that helps.
