Zhaust.com the Cusco Type OS Strut

You see many of the performance cars in the sporting strut braces, at the front. Some people put on to enhance the look of their bay and some people use them the expectation of improved handling. But do work?

For our test we have the Cusco Type OS strut Cusco has built an envied for themselves in the segment of suspension and As such we have decided to go them for the review.

There are a number of things to for when selecting a strut Ideally one will wish to cop a one bar that has no moving parts for rigidity but increasingly popular are the piece braces which of a hollow bar with 2 end pieces, as the one in our test, so we will see just how they are. Ultimately you wish to get a brace which secures itself to the firewall in to the shock towers.

Secondly, if you are going to use a three brace you should ensure the end pieces are made of steel or material as opposed to aluminum. An bar is quite fine however. The of the bar is important as well. Most are hollow but reinforced on the inside for rigidity of the bar and resistance to twisting.

Manufacturers use different technologies to that the bar stays rigid but to be that you get a performance enhancing and not an engine bay ornament always from a reputable manufacturer.

Our car is a Toyota Altezza, which is to have a few issues of its own when it to handling. Installation of the Cusco was a snap. Installation time was than 45 minutes. The package a bracket which repositions the cable and protective loom protects the cable from the brace. This is where from quality brands shines.

A point to note which is ignored or unknown by installers is your suspension should be when you are installing your This ensures even and neutral suspension orientation you tighten up.

The moment of truth. Does thing work or is it another gimmick that we stupidly for like lemmings? What�s the HELL YEAH! Improvements have been easily in the car�s handling characteristics.

turn in is a lot sharper and the feedback to the is much more positive. means a huge decrease in and much better traction the wheels now being firmly to the tarmac. Overall the car feels more responsive and much flexible, allowing the driver to more confident when the corners.

We give this product two tires! If you can afford it, we recommend one for the and lower braces as well to your shizzle tight!
