    I really like my tower bar ! in addition with the subframe brace the car feels solid in curves, it really helped to reduce body roll, just need suspension with front strut bar and it will be A1 for my needs

    Is FKX gonna design a front strut bar similar to the rear one ? would be awesome since im not really a fan of the Megan Racing one..

    You could go with Ultra Racing for the 2.0 FB. I have the 4 point bar and it fits for a 2014 Si Sedan without issues. I plan on getting the rest of their brace supports as well down the road. It helps that they are white to match my car already.

    this is fkx racing front tower bar...



    the secret is this 1) reinforced bracket



    2) the bar is rib-caged, they are not hollow or single blade type like most low end tower bar

    ultra racing 4 point brace is not a struct tower bar, the it's a chassis brace, it will not effect the whole McPherson struts due to the mounting point, struct bar needs to be mounted on the struct, chassis braces mounted on chassis..


    here is ultra racing's diagram how tower bar works...

    it works the same on both front & rear, especially the rear like ours are independence have only 1 mounting bolt for the shocks (usually it's 2 or 3, and guess what honda did for 10th ? they upgrade it to 2 bolt mounting for better performance) will make even better improvement than the older honda with double wishbone suspension

    10th gen civic rear shocks are still Independence rear suspension, but the rear shocks are now bolted to the hat that are bolted (2 point) to the chassis

    there are used floating around... you just need to keep an eye out, there are too many counterfeit fkx bars right now it's why it's stop production. there will be some legal action in the near future. just not now...
