One of the first upgrades many MINI owners tend make to is to add a Strut Bar. They are easy to install and will improve on the handling that the MINI is known for. Since cornering is why we love the MINI, of course we want to make our improvements in that arena. Our SARS (Strut Alignment Reinforcement System) go one step further to address an issue that MINI has not properly dealt with, Tower Deformation or Mushrooming. The base of the bar is a half inch thick plate of billet aluminum that will keep your strut tower in tact, while the bar ties the two opposing towers together as a single unit.

Double Your Protection, Double Your Fun
When you get SARS you are really also getting our STDs also. You'll get the custom made hardware, which is the only way you can mount a plate with this thickness throughout. The Plates cover the whole tower distributing out the shock force over the entire tower to prevent damage. You'll also get our two piece tunable billet aircraft aluminum bar. The two piece design allows you to adjust the tension on the bar to put the proper tension on on the bar to minimize flex in a corner.
Craven Speed's SARS retains a 1/2 inch thickness throughout ensuring that there are no weak spots. Installation is easy, using the included instructions, it will take about 10 minutes to ensure that you do not have to go through a lengthy and expensive alignment repair.
