    I got one brand new in the box that I might be willing to part with if you want it.

    I have "heard" a lot of horror stories about aftermarket crossmembers for the ef. I decided to stay stock. Do some research before you make a purchase.

    my boy has one on his rex...it used to have a lsvtec in it and there was no prblems at all...except when the motor mount broke and the crank pulley fell on the traction rod,which snapped...but other than that,they work nicely

    Traction bars are a must definately worth its cost $$$$$

    Look into L'con traction bars I had them on my H22 eg hatch. They are pricey but hella worth

    it!
