Strut Bars - Ultra Racing


Recommended Posts

What are strut bars?

A strut bar, strut brace, or strut tower brace is an automotive suspension accessory on a monocoque or unibody chassis to provide extra stiffness between the strut towers.

Do strut bars really make a difference?

Strut tower bars lower the lateral G-force a car can achieve. However, they do improve handling by reducing body roll. This makes the car more stable, and predictable. As mentioned earlier you may also notice the car is more responsive to steering input do to quicker "turn in".

Do rear strut bars help?

Connecting the front wheels increases understeer and using a rear bar increases oversteer. Strut bars and sway bars are both designed to unify the suspension and improve handling and using one does not mean that you can't use the other as well. Sway bars do a better job of reducing body roll.
