Nice little upgrade, not mind blowing or anything but noticeable. Brings some consistency to the pedal feel and makes for a much more linear experience. Previously I had the dreaded brake line failure due to the weak spray and pray recall that SOA offered on these cars. So coming into this I have fresh hard lines throughout, SS rear lines and new stock fronts (stealership didn't install the SS front lines I provided) and obviously fresh fluid. The car has Brembo pads btw. Overall it was a noticeable improvement but still didn't feel great by any stretch, certainly not $2300 fresh either. Enter this brace, it pulled the car from just okay to pretty good and much more enjoyable to drive. I now feel I can trust the brakes vs. hope they stop the car. What's that worth to you? Install: Removing the parts is kind of a pain just due to the lack of space, it takes some time and you will curse a bit. Install on the other hand was quick and easy, my 2005 did require the included spacers to get everything lined up. Highly recommended for any LGT, it's all the little things that make a car better, and this is one of them.
