If YoSpeed was to product front mounting strut bars for 9thgen civics, would you consider a purchase?

Keep in mind for them to make them we'd need a considerable amount of interest.

PLEASE ANSWER TRUTHFULLY!

JUST WANT TO SEE IF THERE IS ENOUGH MARKET FOR THIS :)

For those of you unsure what it is i am talking about, this is what a strut bar is :)

Like anything else YoSpeed makes, it will be in a variety of colors and engravings if you so choose!

Thanks for your input in advance! :)

More functional, but an Aesthetic work can be put into it if the demand rises.

I personally wanted it because its a cheap accent that really adds to the look of the car... at least i find it does...

EDIT: If you just want a decorative one, you can buy an adjustable strut bar that will fit a bunch of different vehicles.. but they simply are not strong enough to offer any additional structural rigidity :pout:

Yep emailed him direct :)

He needs to see how much demand there is. But he will need a welder locally that he can trust.

I'd be interested but where would they or it go? The struts are under the plastic cowl at the base of the windshield.

Explain how these would go on, as our strut towers are covered

Good question! I took a pic for you :)

The plastic below the windsheild needs to come off :p

Right side



Left



And this is where it would go approximately...

like i said it would involve removing that plastic.. i didn't take it off for picture sake, but i will in the future to test fit/measure

Not feeling it?! Thought people may be excited about it... truth is, with what i can see from my stance, we're looking certainly in the $100+ RANGE MAYBE $150~ Keep in mind it'll be top notch quality!

They have some for the 8th gen on eBay from what I can see. You can see the bar with the plastic off.

Sway bars first.

fair enough, work from the rear up makes sense, you'd see more performance doing the rear anyways :)

If it was around 100 ish I may buy for engine dress up. Otherwise I feel the front is already rather stiff. I put a big neuspeed bar on my 03 and didn't feel a difference. It looked good and added about 15-20lbs.

Thats fair to say... you'd prefer more performance :)
