    Civic EJ, I have upper strut bars and sway bars, how beneficial would lower tie bars be? Thanks!

    a tie bar is designed to prevent tear-out of the rear subframe from rear sway bars. if you have a rear sway, you should have one.

    They are a nice finish to a car with a beefy suspension setup, but if you haven't done the essentials spend your money elsewhere.

    They do however prevent chassis flex, which can be unpredictable (and in fact, a flexing chassis is more or less like a spring in itself) and obviously not desirable.

    The front and rear subframe are not terribly strong in the first place, so its not a bad idea.
