The strut tower bar is arguably one of the least expensive upgrades that can provide a very high degree of benefit that is felt immediately after installing. Often one of the first modifications performed on a vehicle, the strut tower brace improves handling and stability of a vehicle. The Sustec Tower Bar has been very popular due to its low price and high functionality. By connecting the strut towers, and creating a balance, the shocks are prevented from independently moving and causing small changes in suspension geometry.
While simple in appearance, the design of the centershaft has a significant amount of engineering put into it. The construction is reinforced extruded aluminum, which features dual reinforced lips on the underside, as we as tapered ends for additional rigidity. The centershaft is very lightweight, so weight is not added to reinforce the chassis.
The end plates are 100% steel for maximum strength and durability. Extreme budget tower bars commonly use aluminum end plates, which are highly subject to deformity and breaking.
