I am thinking about installing strut bars on my Tib., but wondering if they will make any real difference in the handling. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

They make your car a little more solid in the corners. You will notice more of a difference in high speed cornering. You will be able to go faster through them with less steering wheel input.

A worth while mod IMHO.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Cottonmouth is correct on his sayings. The strut bar connects the two towers together to help lessen the body flexing of the car. This makes the handeling more stable.

I also agree installing this is a good choice to make. Also you might want to look into sway bars for even more added stability.

IMO the effect is real, though it's not the most noticeable effect you could add to your car. I have a set of SR front and rear, and the major benefit is feeling the car more solid, also when aproaching to the limit, it becomes a little more predictable. I'm not racing or driving near the limit all day, but it's good to know they are there. For the price, I think they are one of the mods you can't miss. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

They are good stuff, and look nice. You can feel the difference at the limit. Definitely worth it.
