Hi! I guess I'll introduce myself because I'm new to this forum. I've read around the forum and everyone seems to have great comradely here and is really supportive. I have a 2010 FXT :woohoo:. I wanna increase the handling. Has anyone tried this strut bar?

STI Flexible Tower Bar

It's on YouTube but in Japanese

Welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

I don't know if that strut tower brace will do that much to improve your handling. I'd be looking at better tires, then upgrading your front & rear sway bars. :smile:

Flexible?! That's kind of defeats the purpose of the strut bar...

But overall, struts bars are not worth it until you have MUCH firmer suspension. Rear strut bar might be an exception, but I don't know how much '10 body flexes compared to older models. If the answer is "about as much" (i.e., not "much less"), then you might feel some difference in really hard cornering even with stock suspension; this will also help to keep cabin geometry while parked on really uneven surfaces (helps to open and close rear hatch easily).
