Front strut Bar

This bar is really easy to build yourself. I used the UrS strut collars as
mentioned since they bolt right on. Then some square stock, a few holes in
your custom length bar and you are all set. The only tough part is the brake
reservoir gets in the way. So, I used some of the square stock to build
spacer blocks to get the bar just a little higher. Worked out perfect.
Clearance between the brake reservoir and the hood is really tight but
works. My version is fixed just like the UrS. A must do mod IMO. Sorry, no
camers so no pics right now.
