BWR is a knock off company that does not do much, if any, new or innovative stuff and simply takes what others have done and tries to (usually poorly) replicate stuff.

They are on my list of companies to never do business with.

I hate to sound like a nut-swinger, but Full-Race is the only bar I'd go with. Not because of the name, but because they actually did their research & put the pivot points in-line with the LCA rotation centerline. It's not much more, either.

If the bar mounts somewhere off that centerline, then it starts to pull or push the LCA as the suspension moves up or down. Not only does that change alignment, but binding may also occur - both are very bad.

Here's a link to their research: http://www.full-race.com/articles/traction_bars.pdf

If you are creative, ANY traction bar can provide a front mount.

something as simple as an everyday exhaust clamp can provide to spots to bolt a plate, and make the magic happen

I get the binding part but assuming there is none, and that you've set your alignment with the suspension loaded, if you have spherical bushings on both ends and a fixed bar length, won't the alignment change when the load changes?

around $300 at fullrace gets you a traction bar that is built to be many times stronger than necessary (factor of safety I believeits called)

While there is mroe than one quality company, IF the quality is there, there is no need to spend a bunch extra.

Many people who have fullrace products are still using them even ten years later.

I am in no way shape or form saying they are the best or not, but they have proven themselves for a lower price than some.

I will definitely check out fullrace. I have seen the quality of their turbo kits and the price tag to go with them lol. That's why I have never checked them out for suspension parts. Thanks!

Great thread guys, knowing now that this is a performance upgrade and not aethstetic, when is the point where one of these becomes necessary or useful? Once the stock HP is increased?
