It looks like the AOS may be your main clearance issue. I think they are all (or at least most) made to route past the stock tmic.

If I were you, I would probably just skip it altogether and buy something else. They are really just bling on our cars anyway.

hmm yeh it looks like the AOS in right on the way of the strut bar..

people should stop saying the strut bar is just a bling. it does work. it's not like sway bar kinda mod where you will like wow.

(lower brace + strut bar) together is a great mod to firm up the front end chassis.

Here's the Cusco on mine, it might clear the AOS. I can take a closer/better pic tonight when I get home if you want.

Bump. Anyone out there have a strut bar on a GR that clears the Crawford AOS V2 TMIC version? Is there any reason that you couldn't make a custom mount to lower the AOS? Would that effect the way it drains or put it too close to the turbo or anything?

I remember reading on here that you will have to lower the AOS to fit a strut bar. Really only requires drilling new mounting holes.

Carmud - you have the AOS for the FMIC...this is located in a different spot then the TMIC AOS

Let me know if you figure something out...as I'm also interested and running the Crawford AOSv2

My understanding is that the strut tower bar does zilch for bracing since it is so close to the firewall. I could be wrong though, I was fairly blitzed during that discussion and it may be the GD's I'm talking about.

I put mine on about a week ago (2008 STI with Perrin STB). It created a noticeable difference in handling on my car. Going over bumps on the road, BETTER. Carrying more speed through turns, BETTER. Ability of the car to get the rear end around, BETTER. Stability at higher highway speeds, BETTER. I think because it was an addition to coilovers, front and rear sway, and lower control arm bushings is why I am loving it so much. I think if I didn't have supporting suspension mods, then I probably wouldn't notice it as much.
