I just got back from my test drive. Install took about 2 hours, but you could do it in less time if you don't run into any problems. Basically the hardest part of the install is breaking down & replacing the cowl, so if you're proficient doing that it'll be a breeze. My car is bone stock. This upgrade is completely isolated. And my first impressions: ***GREAT*** upgrade. I was having a lot of wobble complements of a gigantic pot hole
This strut brace fixed 90% of that wobble over uneven surfaces, resulting in a much more comfortable ride.
I bought this part for $225 and I wouldn't hesitate making the investment. If you're on the fence about it, and you have some wobble like I did, do it now.
