Track tested and racer approved, the CorkSport Lower Tie Bar is designed to add rigidity to the front suspension sub-frame. By connecting the inboard pivot points for the front lower control arms, the lower tie bar adds opposing strength to the sub-frame that helps reduce wheel hop and torque steer. In the opposite manner, the lower tie bar also helps improve braking performance. #ZoomZoom!

this is a must for any MS3 that is modded for power! i am currently tuned 93 oct. through Will (PDtuning) and have been getting alot of wheel spin and hop in 2nd under boost greater then 10psi. i have the passenger engine mount rear engine mount and strut brace. but with this pcs it closed everything down. the car feels more stable. no more hop in 2nd under boost and torque steer is almost gone now. it is very manageable for a front wheel drive 300+hp car. Corksport never disappoints.
Massive reduction in torque steer as well as wheel hop. Fantastic product. every single speed should have this product on the car.
So far so good: just got this bar installed and my immediate first impressions are that turn-in feels sharper and torque steer definitely seems to be nicely reduced. This bar is bigger and beefier out of the box than I had expected, which gives me faith that it will do just what they claim it does.

Word of caution to those who live in areas that love their road salt/brine, though, like I do: if you're unlucky enough to have an LCA bolt rusted/seized to the steel inside of the bushing, you might find that you're in for a big ordeal with this "would have otherwise been super simple" install.
I have the v1 (original design) lower tie bar. Love it. It does all the things listed above. If this one is truly stronger, it's a huge win for you.

This thing was one of my first upgrades and is a must have.
