Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts

I don't really need this car to be track ready, but I'd like a little better cornering performance. I was looking at these strut bars and wondering if they are any good, and if so, if they will work for me. Also, i was not planning on doing the back, just the front. Will that make a difference? A little assistance here would be appreciated. Thanks.

In case you are referring to body-roll at cornering, it's not likely that a strut bar will improve this. Some body roll is a Lexus trade-off between comfy and sporty characteristics.

As I recall, the IS uses double wishbone suspension at front, minimizing forces at the chassis by design. So if you really want to improve cornering and body-roll, you need to upgrade to a beefy aftermarket sway-bar and sport springs, etc.

In terms of overall body stiffness, strut bars can make a difference, but I doubt effects will be noticeable @ your current (standard) setup.
