Does anyone have a AA front Strut Bar/Brace? Also does anyone have a AA rear Strut Bar/Brace? If so could you post pics?

^Probly only a slight stiffing of the chassis. Maybe helps with tower mushrooming. But most of all it looks badass to me.

front bar helps more than a rear. i've heard rear bars doesn't help that much at all for street cars (except take up space in your trunk). i'd rather get a rear sway bar.

Interested also! Also any notable performance gains?
No performance gains whatsoever. The only thing it does, is prevent the towers from mushrooming under extreme circumstances.

If you take a turn like a bat out of hell, it will hold slightly better.

Functionally worth it, not under regular driving conditions. On a track, yes.

I am actually more interested in sub frame connectors that run the length of the car. I added a pair to my camaro back in the day, and it definetly helped get more weight to the rear wheels on take off and stiffened the frame. Plus it was another jack point which was nice.
