UR Rear Strut/Tower Bar - RE2-636

Hi guys! Just want to ask if you have any experience or reviews about this UR rear strut/tower bar? I already have the front tower strut bar and rear antiroll bar. I know for a front engine front wheel drive, and hatch, it helps to stiffen the rear. Thanks for the replies! See pic fore reference

Sorry you wasted your money, but that won't do anything for stiffening chassis rigidity. Bolting that thing to the top of your SHOCKS in the rear that are RUBBER MOUNTED will do nothing but inconvenience you. There is absolutely no lateral load on the rear shock mounting points.

I was thinking it would help with straight line stability at the top/bottom of hills, over coming squat/lift camber, them I remembered the torsion bar suspension set-up. so no, this only adds weight to the vehicle...

Thank you for your reply sir. I'm learning alot about our yaris, thanks to yarisworld 😊 I already have the 19mm rear antiroll bar. How about the front upper strut bar and the rear lower member brace, do you think they add help also?

Pic for reference

The front one yes because it's bolted to the chassis. That lower rear one would if it was designed differently and even then you'd never notice it.

The front one makes a noticeable difference in steering feel because it's connected to parts of the chassis that can flex and change camber angles at high load. The brace will pull on the other strut tower and help keep it in line.

the rear brace would help with chassis rigidity. it would be good with the side braces if you were to chop the roof and make a yaris convertible....

Thank you for sharing your ride sir :) just want to ask if your center floor brace and cabin tower brace are custom made/ fabricated? are they bolt-on to existing chassis points? (kob kun mak krab) :)
