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!

great product
This is a must have. It tightens the steering up and greatly reduces torque steer. Exactly what I was expecting, corksport never lets me down!
This simple add-on really helped put my wheel hop and torque steer into control. It really connects nicely, and I'm only using the eFocus mount. It eliminated any wheel hop i was still having with my softer motor mount, and torque steer has been significantly reduced.

Simple install, and great price...a must buy!
This piece literally SAVED MY TRANSMISSION. Buy it if you're running power for that reason alone! What happened was I foolishly bought a used POS transmission mount of Ebay. Installed it along with this Tire bar at the same exact time. Immediately after driving i felt clunking noise from the transmission hitting the bar, back to the lift to check . I Blew the used transmission mount (: but this strong guy held the tranny in place to get me back to the shop. Worth every penny for that alone. Also the ride and wheel hop is much reduced. Great product as always.
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.

I love the video and explanation. I wish it was still for $124.99 as stated in the video. :P

Would this cause a “too stiff” factor if installed along with a rear sway bar? Or is it recommend to have both, to keep wheels planted on turns and wot??
