I think it's generally accepted that a strut bar is more for visual appeal than real performance. There is likely a slight increase in rigidity in that area as it does connect two points together. But it's nothing you will realize. It depends on the car though. On my old integra. I had an X brace that connected to the rear seat belt and to the rear strut mount.

Kind of like this


That I felt like made a difference. In high speed corners the chassis would maintain a bit more stability. Plus you can really HEAR it working. It squeaks like crazy under stress. Just goes to show how much a stock frame can flex. The car was designed to have a roll cage put in. If you want the ultimate bracing get a roll cage. The sway bars are the cheapest form of bracing to change the turning balance and responsiveness of the car.

Well I have had them on the car for about a month now, tracked a couple times.. I don't care what people who don't have them say... They work, I can tell a difference.
