IF you can find one and it's "cheap" it will be hollow and flex enough where it won't do any good, unless your putting it on for looks.

Here's one for $102. Not sure what you idea of "cheap" is.

great googly moogly, that is an expensive price for the Freedom Designs Strut bar!!! About twice what I paid for mine...



Also, surf, you need to pay attention to the type - most of them need to have the passenger side mounting bracket modified if you're putting it on a turbo PT.

Yea, but you can hardly find the "cheap" strut bars anymore. That one person selling them on eBay doesn't have anymore so you have to do some searching around to find what's right. Mine is from Maggie but she doesn't carry them anymore. Solid bar. 1" thick and very well mounted.

Oh nothing's wrong with it, I just like the type you have better. The bar on yours is stronger and the mounts are a bit more 'racey'... mine's the cheapest one you can buy, but it does do the job, just not the best out there.
