prolly the hardest part of installing the tie even a homemade one is lining everything up to get the LCA bolt through. make sure your measurements are precise

I made one for my integra out of a solid aluminum bar, and yes I could tell a difference when cornering hard ect after installation. You can use solid steel bar too and it would be the best performance wise..but it will be alot heavier

use a length of 1" angle iron. It doesn't weight very much and is strong enough.

I think its 27" on center for the LCA holes but you'd better measure 2-3 times and drill once.

here's a picture




I used a piece of 1" square tubing but this is better IMO
