In Reply to: Strut bars v. sway bars vs. xbrace (more) posted by 95M3owner on October 05, 2000 at 08:34:16:

They are all great fun... and I just completed my whole set

Here we go:

Sway Bars - attach to the suspension arms, keep the car flat in high speed turns. Big time difference in my car... still my favorite mod.

X-brace - atatches under the car to cut down on body/chassis flex. Cheap, might be tricky to install on your 95 (no nutserts) - car feels stiffer over bumps, quicker turn in. Felt the change, worth the $100.

Strut tower brace - attaches to the top of the strut tower, reduces flex and looks cool. I just installed mine - couldn't really feel much, but I also have the X-brace which I think already killed like 90% of the flex. Still can't hurt.

They're all fun, and that is the order I bought mine in. Good luck and enjoy - if you're in Central Florida and need install help, let me know.

Cheers,
Dave

What's the difference among them and do you need all of them?
