GROUP BUY! 1st Gen and 2ed Gen GTSPEC Strut Tower Bar's!



Ok, I have been loaded up with messages about you guys wanting these, I understand GTSPEC is holding off on making these for a while, I called GTSPEC and talked to them, they agreed to make a special run of these. I know some of you want the other bars, but we are going to try this out and see what happens. I started the Feeler thread for all the bars, but it was just to much to keep track of everything. I hope you guys understand

SO here it is, they will only do this if I get a order of 10+ of that part number, so I need a order of 10 Bars for the 1st Gen, and 10 bars for the 2ed gen.

For one, this is the ONLY way they will do it, I tried for 5 bars but they said no, and I get a much better discount with this many bars, so that means better pricing for you guys.

Once the order is placed with GTSPEC, it will be about 3 weeks until they are shipped out.

For Pricing, They will be $186.74 Shipped in the US!

1st Gen:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10


2ed Gen:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10

Nice! Didn't think they would be able to make an STB for the 2nd gen with all the plumbing around the tops of the strut towers... if you have a 2nd gen, this is probably your only chance to get an STB for your FX... GL with the group buy!

Re: GROUP BUY! 1st Gen and 2ed Gen GTSPEC Strut Tower Bar's!

Anyone who already has these bars, what kind of difference have you noticed?

Also I'm a noob to modding, I've seen some strut bars that don't have pivot points, what does having the pivot do? Is it better to have a fixed bar vs having pivots?

Thanks

Theoretically STBs that don't have pivot points should work better... but there have been no tests performed to actually prove it... just about anyone who's installed an STB, from the STILLEN's to the NRG's to the STRONG STRUTS and GT SPEC's have all claimed an improvement in handling... and since STRONG STRUT isn't producing any more STB's for the FX due to a lack of interest from the FX market, all the other STB's for the FX have pivot points...

Let me know when this goes through I want to get one.

Also need to find out about shocks, supposedly I have one that's starting to leak.

Do a search for "STB" or "STRUT TOWER BAR"... there are quite a few threads talking about it... you can also do a search for "STRONG STRUT"... there was a thread that got pretty heated, comparing the pros and cons of several different STBs...

Ok, I have placed the order, but I can still get a couple more in on this deal. I'm on IS more than here. So its best to post on there, or PM me here so I get a notice of a message.

Also this is for 1st Gen right now, Still need about 5 more to get the 2ed gen ones going.

Let me know ASAP.
