You are so correct, the proof is having it on your car and knowing the difference before and after. The ultra racing front strut tower brace is a major difference in performance. I also just added a Rear Sway Bar from Ultra Racing and the difference is amazing. Major stability difference in corners as well as in high winds (as we had this week in FL from hurricane) is worth the install. I researched the TRD bar and had no luck verifying they would fit. May have paid a bit more for UR bar but they are a perfect fit and use stock bushings and brackets.
