Ummm... is that sarcastic? I actually don't know!
If so, is there a bar that you think is better?
I'm a total newbie to the world of strut bars!
Ha yes and no?
I do really like my hotchkis strut bar and I have the hotchkis rear sway bar as well. The front strut bar has holes in it so you can use swivel sockets to get the plugs out. The air box lid is a pain to get out but not too hard. I may go with an aftermarket intake again, that would fix that issue.
Plus I got the strut bar for dirty cheap, like $40 shipped on eBay. I see them on eBay for cheap all the time. I almost bought one the other day for $60 and I was gonna get it powder coated but I decided not to.
As far as what one to get, any will be the same for the most part, just stick with a name brand and I prefer the one piece design. The bars that bolt together may or may not be as strong.

Is there a difference between the Hotchkis rear sway bar vs. Progress rear sway bar such as construction and fit? Fast Scions has the Hotchkis RSB for $199.99 and Progress RSB for $154.95. Also, if I end up getting the Progress RSB and add Hotchkis FSB, is it recommended to keep the same brand or is it okay to have different brand for front and rear sway bar? Have any of you noticed any benefit by adding the front sway bar?
I'm also looking to add a front strut bar but don't know if this will have any impact or is it more aesthetic.
I feel strut bars help but it's not always something you can feel.
I got my hotchkis rear sway bar from tire rack. Took about a week and a half special order but it is on there site.
Hotchkis has two rear sway bars. Sport and competition, I went with competition, it is thicker but it's heavy. The progress bar I think may be hollow, not 100% sure. I had a progress rear sway bar on my Tiburon and I really enjoyed it.
