i too am looking for UR struts for my car.
Weight isnt such a big issue for me cause im searching for stiffness to improve the handling qualities.
UR bars are one piece designs so they have less moving parts

less moving parts = less parts to malfunction = stiffer design = happy me

Juz to share wid u guys bout wat i think ...

If u're not driving a saga/iswara, u can get any bar (as long as not from Brother's) ... whether its URD , UR, ZENDEN, whatever ... It'll work the same. Coz saga the front strut bar i think its better to weld at the chassis then to straight letak on the mounting..
For other cars (most other cars) that those strut bar companies do, front normally can screw on somewhere at the chassis wan ... So dun worry bout any brand.. Altho i wud still like UR tho coz im using them LOL . But if i knew URD was cheaper i wud have gone for URD, or if Zenden made strut bars for Saga i would go for Zenden... Get my drift?

Those bars aren't really heavy la n it wun really affect ur weight unless u're like some extreme racer or sumthin... Cheers.. Juz me few cents :_:

why is cusco rated like such here? there's the normal ones, aluminium and titanium.

theory is, more points is always better than less, up to a certain extent. So yes, UR bars are great.

My front is fitted with a cusco strut because one of the mounting points is used (Ur would use this mounting point to fit one of the points), so i can't fit a 4 point. despite that, i like collecting Japanese performance parts. My rear also 2 point Okuyama Dash. My comments, thumbs up and no regrets! 2 point bars work too.

As for rust, mine has almost none noticable. I've sold one cusco bar (wider type than the common thin bar), it had spots, it might be rust but nothing than a polish could clean off with. i doubt it is rust anyways. I thought of getting UR's 3 point fender bars tho.

See la your preference. sometimes it isn't the performance some people want, sometimes it what the items make them feel. Sometimes that extra umph isn't worth it compared to something else desired. It might not be oh so great but, it's according to ones liking. just like cars =)

But yeah, being very honest in my own opinion, all the struts are good (Weight doesn't make significant difference in struts). It's only bad if they break or bend.

hello bro..

dis my opinion study on dis parts.. basically, we must know the function on dis part.. strut bar, fender bar or any bar is applied to hold the absober, body and arm.. for proton, the absober mounted on the body and indirectly the bar would avoid the body from move or twist.. so the handling would become perfect..

the point is, the better bar is from the stiff material but not the light material.. steel is heavy but stiff than aluminium.. CUSCO become expensive is not only bcoz of brand but the material is already expensive.. but aluminium does not rusty.. then hollow bar is better than solid bar.. solid bar become better if have some shape from xtrusion or forged process..

plz correct if i'm mistakes.. thks..

bout solid bar.. better if have shape... if u study back any beam like under ur car or beam for build a house or building, the shape is not only rectangle but have some shape.. look like "H" section.. n bout forged, if u find some spanar, have emblem "drop forged".. it is a process to hardened the steel also "annealing".. dat wut i know after study for 4years..

i agree on what u say here but steel disadvantage is weight...
aluminium there is alot of grade as well as they have different strenght...some of the grade the aluminium is even stiffer the steel....but very costly compare to steel....

its true.. aluminum can be stiff if add wif some carbon to hold the molecule and have some process.. that why the cost is high.. but when u attach on or car, the different is not too large on weight.. but the important thing in strut bar is a stiff.. to hold the body and suspension.. nowdays, i stil not found any aluminum front bar wif 4 point.. only UR have 4 point.. for me, 2 point is not enough..

we cannot but and try like try and error.. its already increase the cost.. the cheaper front bar that i found is RM40.. but when we try and error, we already waste RM40.. better use for eat.. hehehe...

previously was from the same company... but rumours said both tauke tak syok each other.... so they went on their own path and syok sendiri...

and so, URD is formed....
