Legendary for its super sports-carlike handling and responsiveness, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X has the capability to carve through the tightest S-turns at speeds leaving some of its more expensive Italian competitors far behind. Backed with Mitsubishi's Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) system which integrates the Active Center Differential (ACD), Active Yaw Control (AYC), Active Stability Control (ASC), and Sports ABS components, the all-wheel drive Lancer Evolution is in-short, capable of carrying a much faster pace through corners than many other vehicles on the road or track. To maintain those furious speeds through turns, a superior suspension and a serious strut bar is needed.

Worrying about a vehicle's chassis remaining stiff at the limit is a thought in most serious driver's minds as they test their abilities with their car. When a car is pushed hard into a turn, if unsupported, the tops of the towers can move as much as 1/8" affecting the camber setting in an unpredictable way, which in turn makes the handling of the car somewhat unpredictable. AEM has engineered a stronger bolt-on strut bar to stabilize the tops of the struts and tie the suspension together to eliminate movement of the strut towers.

The AEM strut bar, part 29-0000, is made of a large diameter, thin walled steel tube to help maximize the strength to weight ratio. In the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, the 29-0000 strut bar is easy to install because it simply bolts up using the existing mounts from the stock front strut tower bar on the firewall and the tops of the strut towers to provide excellent rigidity. AEM performance strut bars are a true racing option and a more professional alternative to many hinged or weaker strut bars on the market.

One unrealized benefit with the addition of a correctly made strut tower bar is that Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH) can be reduced as well. With a vehicle like the Lancer Evo pinning you back in your seat while your tires stick like glue through a turn, a driver will appreciate the benefit of installing the AEM strut tower bar..
