Ok Strut Bars decrease chancing of twisting and turning in corners right?

Well would it matter if i put a strut bar on normal shocks?

They help decrease body roll. Yes, they help noticeably. Of course the more components you upgrade the more drastic the improvement.

the various amounts of feedback that i had read lead me to think that bracing up the front of a stock suspended car and/or one with stock skinny rims/tires lead to increased understeer.

so even after I replaced my suspension I waited until I had wider rims & sticky meats to mount up my bar. but I did have to briefly go back to my poopy stock rims & tahrs while waiting for rear spacers - more than anything I noticed how reducing the chassis flex transmitted crappy road irregularity directly to the suspension even while driving a straight line.

that in itself will quickly highlight the limits of 'normal' suspension parts.

warming up? i guess your not living on the west coast...

you can get the same strut brace from kspec.com or evofusionusa.com. essentially the same price too...

Or you can make your own (I'm going to soon...I'm too cheap to buy it lol)...but it requires some welding and significant metalworking skills...not to mention it's more of a PITA, but oh well.

no, its a great idea. the only thing that i have changed is the wheels/tyres, all the suspension is stock and it makes heaps of difference in handling

Only time you should need a realignment is if you change your ride height: ie lowering the car with springs or coil-overs.

Strut Bar is very cheap very good upgrade. Flattens out the curves nicely. You will notice the diff.

Last thing, If you can't do a strut bar install in less than 30 minutes either
A) you got sent the wrong bar.
or
B) you dont belong within 10 miles of a wrench and your car's open hood
