Check out the OEM Motorsport bar which is actually also bent.

What make a difference is whether or not there are joints and the way the bar is connected to the end caps, the actual material of the bar (i.e., aluminum or chrome-moly), etc....

: : Anyone have any info. I've read the archives and this seems to be the best product (i.e. no pivot points in the design and works with traction control).

: : Any comments would be appreciated.

: : Thanks.

: That bar looks Ok, but it looks BENT in the center? Shouldn't it be a straight bar to get maximum stability? A bent bar with alot of stress will just bend more over time. The UUC Bar looks better and looks like a straight bar.

: my 2 cents
