    stiffen the chassis, less body rol going through turns. Makes the car feel better when cornering

    cusco is name brand stuff. Ive havent bought a strut bar for a car in like 15 years so I really have no idea on brands. Hopefully our other members can chime in later

    Not exactly. A strut tower bar does tighten up the front end but doesn't lessen body roll. A beefier rear sway bay will help with that.

    Here's my take on what to expect from a front strut bar. Basically by connecting the two strut towers, you limit geometry changes. By doing that, quick lane changes feel better and the steering feels a bit more precise. It should also feel tighter over speed bumps and bad roads.

    A strut bar is a decent first upgrade and it adds some bling but a rear sway bar generally gives you more bang for the buck.

    Can you have both? Yes. That's the combo along with better tires I've used in most of my cars.
