looking for harness bar

hi,
Looking for a harness bar- anyone selling theirs?

Are these harness bars, re-named/re-priced rear strut tower bars? Are they really different in materials and consruction?
Can I make my own by reinforcing a rear strut tower bar?

A good harness bar is a lot more than a simple strut tower bar.

Think about it - a strut bar only has to take fairly moderate loads in tension and compression (ie. pulling and pushing along the direection of its length). A true harness bar has to take much higher loads at 90 degrees to its length (ie. sheer forces). So it has to be much beefier.

Recently there has been some concern that race shop has been hard to reach.

Do you have a phone number.

I know that.

Let me re-phrase the question: are the so called harness bars sold on the market worth consideration, or are they really cheap strut tower braces being sold as harness bars (ie crap)?

Anyone using brands other than Raceshop that look respectable?

Raceshop is the only one i'm aware of that should even considered... and i'm not sure you can even still get it anymore.

You might be able to find an older M2 Harness Bar (which were made for M2 by Larry and The RaceShop).
