    Yeah, the trunk brace is great. I didn't have the bar, just the cheap-o X and I highly recommend it....unless you're constantly using the trunk pass-through for bulky items. I could've sworn I did a write up in my journal, but can't find it.

    Shopping list was basically:
    4x bolts that screw into existing holes
    2x turnbuckles
    2 short lenghts of steel cable
    4x cable crimp thingies (i forget the real name)
    Assorted metal/nylon washers as deemed necessary.

    Bam, project done 30 min later.

    random chime in.

    i wrote a detailed DIY chassis bridge in the how to section. made a huge difference in how it felt around turns

    And that's all I have to say about that...

    Take pictures of the parts when they come in and when you install them!

    Shifter and bushings will make a big difference in feel.
