So is there a noticeable difference in handling performance between the stock strut brace and the TRD one?

umm yes and no, i've heard it works best at high speed cornering, if you take out & check your stock strutbrace you can see how much movement it has (which cant be good) if it doesn't do anything it still looks like it adds 20HP laugh.gif

its kind of hard for me to tell at the moment since i dont have my celica wink.gif --- yup about 2weeks

You should be able to feel extra G's on your body from a stiffer setup... It looks like it would be very effective

I did, I put the springs in then months later I went to aussie (didn't drive my celica for about a week) and when I got back my brothers had already put the trd strutbrace in.

Update: if no one had read or figured out yet my car is in the shop getting the kit fitted and painted etc (I'm going to the shop tomorrow to see how they are going)
also my lights have arrived today they look real nice, cant wait to put them on, they also came with bulbs which saves me some time and money.

aawww do I have too??? whether isn't that great........ i've just put those front indicators, in the end I had to get new bulbs as the US bulbs that came with it, had 2 filaments in them, where as ours only has 1. odd kindasad.gif but they look & work very nice compared to the old ones.
a couple of my mates have seen it and the reckon it almost is a widebody on it, due to the angle of the sideskirts etc
