Default 6-point or rear ARB

I'm assuming the 6-point brace, but which will have a greater effect on a vert?

These mods basically do 2 dif. things. One as in the rear bar will allow your car to handle better and reduce a tad bit of torque steer. The other-6 point firms up the front end reducing cowl shake and also helps with torque steer. I would start with rear just because it's cheap and so damn easy to install. Others with verts may think dif.

I'll echo the sentiments of above on the whole; with my vert I found the front brace [6 point] had the more noticeable impact.

i was doing about mid 120. he past me like i was standing still. it was hilarious. i was done by jones beach and tobay, on ocean parkway, halfway to robert moses beach. GREAT place to cruise at night. anything past 10:30 and the cops basically disappear. some guys lay down vht some nights and drag race all night long. i have seen numerous mustang's and camaro's do wheel stands on the parkway. its all great fun if you catch it on the right night.

i would love to check out the 'vert. i am getting struts put in on monday and when i do the rears in august i think im going to do the rear arb also.

Definetly get the rear ARB makes a hell of a difference. I'm gonna have to head out to jones beach one night. Shoot me an email next time your heading out there maybe I'll be able to make it.

And you definitely won't be telling anyone that you exceeded the public highway speed limits will you? Not on this board anyway.
