Default Front Strut Brace

Hey all,

I've been tossing up for a while about purchasing a front strut brace for my MY02 Foz.
I want to start doing more off roading too and wasn't sure if it would be a wise investment. I realise the point of a strut brace is to stiffen up the front end. But bearing in mind, this is still my daily. I've heard of a few people who've lifted their Foz and put a strut in to get the best of both worlds. But not many...

I was just seeing if anyone else who has done off roading either has one and what are the pros/cons of having a strut brace while off roading.

Thanks for your help guys!

Front strut brace does not make a perceptible difference on a Forester unless you autocross on a low and stiff suspension (e.g., WRX-level with heavy front sway bar).

And for daily driving or off-road/off-payment/rallycross it is pretty much useless.
