    Greddy has a rear bar out for the tC, there is an ebay auction for one right now. Alot cheaper than the Monster Motorworks one.
    I have an doubts with the need for a rear upper strut bar. The rear struts are connected by a rear frame cross member which is huge. When I did my springs I thought the rear upper strut bar would be useless to help in this car as it is design so beefy in the rear. I will post photos later to show.
    Found the photos of the rear shock towers and the reason I think the rear bar is useless.

    This is the rear frame the rear strut mount actually bolts on both side make the brace the actual rear bar


    As you see the frame goes across all the way to the other side


    And here is the other side


    All the greddy rear bar does is bolt to the rear two bolts on the strut mount. I don't think there is any use in our car for this product which cost 100 dollars plus shipping. But I could be totally wrong. The Greddy Bar does look good and that is good for show judges.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the rear frame crossmember doesn't actually tie the 2 shocks together that keep them from moving independantly.
    From what I am seeing in the frame layout it does link them together. In most cars it does not but on the tC it does looking at the pictures while the one picture with the carpet hides the crossmember in the middle it goes all the way across and links he two towers. The strut mount has two bolts on either side of the cross member bolting it to the member.
