Are you talking about a strut bar/harness bar or a sway bar?

I would get a roll bar if you want to beef up your rear end and it's safe to use with 5 pt harnesses. Or you could use the harness bar from www.rotaryextreme.com

roll bar from kirk racing or try and get one from www.m2performance.com

if you want a rear sway bar then look at the Racing Beat one or find a used PFS rear sway bay in the for sale section. PM Fritz Flynn I think he might have a PFS sway bar in his barn of goodies

I've seen that v mount job before and all it does is bolt flimsy sheet metal together. I can't see how it could possibly help at all. The rear strut tower bar on the other hand, does seem to be a worthy investment.

CP racing 4 point, or Cusco. The CP may have fitment issues, as their QC is up, and down. Carl

Look at Autopower rollbars or cages. I have one of their race rollbars and it fits good.

No struts in the rear of an FC, so why would you need a strut bar?

Not to mention they're pretty useless. If you want to stiffen up the rearend, you'll need a custom cage/roll bar. Bolt-in's are just a tick this side of totally useless, and that's just because they provide an element of safety and generally conform to sanctioning body rules.

In an FC, there's a lot of stuff you can pick up from inside the car. Look at pictures of SpeedSource cars to get a good idea.
