the front strut tie bar available from you scion dealer is a Fine addition to your tC.

also, consider the rear sway bar as well. 35% decrease in sway from what i understand.

If this is your first suspension upgrade you REALLY should get the sway bar instead. It makes a huge difference. From what I've heard about the strut bar most people don't even notice a difference after putting it on.

On the "race" setting the TRD swaybar is 64% stiffer than the stock bar. I don't know why anybody would put it on the "street" setting, but that seems to be what most people are doing.

i don't know about the strut bar. i read a post on here that had an article or something that said that a strut bar is useless unless it connects the two towers to the firewall and not just to each other. without being connected to the firewall, the two towers are still moving; they are just moving together. that makes sense to me.

Well at least it looks nice whenever you pop open the hood...
Well I agree... go with the rear sway bar instead... its a better investment.

moogoo it seriously isn't any easier than installing a sway bar.... You just unbolt the old one, take it out, put in the new one, bolt it in using hte same bolts. that's it.
