This is not a strut bar. This does not link up any part of your suspension layout. For it to do what it says it does it needs to connect the two strut/shock towers up.

This is a upper chassis brace not a strut bar. They do similar things but are different.

Was about to say the same thing as TJ.
Sure it doesn't connect to the suspension directly. But it does brace the engine compartment from flex when in a turn.

Which, in a way will stop the strut towers from slightly bending in. Which is what the upper strut bar does.

Would help tighten up steering on sharp turns, but not affect much in normal driving.

Probably the closest thing we can get to a strut bar since our towers are hidden due to being so close to the cab.

ya, if you look we cant have a normal strut bar like other cars, so this, like mFury say, is the closet to a strut bar that we may get, and still do almost as one, also they have more bars for other parts of chassis so if you get 1 or 2 maybe 3 ir will improve a bunch and more if you will use your rio for races
