    Front Strut Tower Brace

    Hey gents I was interested in upgrading my handeling on my 04 WRX and was looking at some Cusco front and rear strut tower braces. People are saying that on my year AC lines need to be moved which kinda makes me a bit weary for obvious reasons. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with front strut tower braces on older model WRX or experience with Cusco parts.

    If you are looking to upgrade your handling look into sway bars and end links (and better tires and a custom alignment if you have't yet). This will have a drastically better impact than strut braces. I like to think of strut braces as the "final touch" in an upgraded suspension.

    I added swaybars, 24mm front 22m rear. Front is on stiff.
    The difference is huge! It's like driving a different car.
    Like 11blackSTI said the strut brace is just the icing on the cake.

    Ok, from what ive been reading people are saying swaybars and endlinks are the way to go. Budget wise is it ok to upgrade one at a time or should front and rear be done at the same time?

    Better to do both at once, but one at a time can be done...

    Front before rear, if doing individually.
