The function of the strut bar in the front?

The strut bar is suppose to prevent the flex in the front but how much flex is there really? I mean the hood lines between the fender are really close, if it flaxed 5mm wouldn't hit the hood and scratch it up or is most of the faxing outward rather then inward during hard cornering and what effect do stabalizer bars have on the flaxing.

Ever since I got the stabilizer bars going over inperfections on the road like driving into somobodys curvy drivay I can hear the hole frame feels like its being twisted. So, I'm thinking of getting one for the front since already have one in the back which helped a lot.

I'm very happy with my spoon bars. I could feel a big difference when I put them on.

They basically eliminate the chassis from flexing when your turning.

Yeah, I got a feels front bar and honestly I didn't think it would do much. But the difference was pretty huge. You feel so much more stable. And even on long high speed turns like when I'm on the freeway I can tell a difference. Just make sure you get a stiff one that you can't bend with your own hands.
