Fit and finish is excellent. My driver strut to mount ring had a tab that needed to be bent down out of the way, then this STB dropped into place perfectly.

Cornering is crazy good now. It's one of those problems you really don't notice until after its cured.

Love this thing. Look at those welds. 6061 Aluminum. CNC-milled brackets.

Superb craftsmanship by Dragonh.

Maleficio, very sweet bracket! What I am inquisitive is why the bracket in the first place. We are having rough ride problems along with TPS not reading on all wheel sensors. The rough ride we've narrowed down to TPS leak or something of that nature, we're having the tires Rotated and Balanced this week and working from there. The struts were replaced January of 2019 brakes, rotors at the same time. My partner says he's noticed a feel of sliding when turning left at any intersection. I have not felt such but I don't regularly drive this vehicle. New to the forum so forgive me if I not used to protocol. Thanks in advance for anyone's help with this issue.

He hasn't been around here for quite some time but he may still be getting pm's. Otherwise, he is still active at InfinitiScene.

So besides looks, what are the benefits? ...Specifically, I would like to know if you ride is more comfortable when going over bumps or is this an upgrade to improve cornering or both?

And if your FX is "stiff" and you find your steering is bouncing or "tracking" when you ride over a lot of bumps in the road, then you should read this thread: Think Your FX35/45 Suspension Is Too Tight (Hard)...

Tip: It's cheap to change your rack & pinion bushings and sway bar bushings. And you don't need an alignment... and you do NOT need to remove the rack or power steering fluid lines. (Just in case your mechanic tries to tell you it's a big job, because it's not. It's easy if you have the car up in the air and there is lots of room to work on those rubber bushings. Note: I did go to polyurethane, but rubber is okay too. After all, your car is probably on it's last 100,000 miles of service.

However, if this does not improve the comfort of your ride, I would replace your rear shock and rubber bumpers. And last but not least I would then replace the front-lower-control-arms and inner and outer tie rods.
