    Cusco Front Lower Arm Bar

    Cusco Front Power Chassis Brace
    SKU: 951 492 F

    Are those two installed on the same location/spot/place? Like an either or mod not both?

    Do the plastic covers underneath needs to be permanently removed for the mods to be installed?

    You own a Prius.

    While both the Bar and the Brace offer you the chance to have blue parts under your car to point at, it will still be a Prius.

    The Bar will add blue near the centerline of the wheels, while the brace adds blue back nearer the Catalytic Converter.

    It is all where you like your blue decorations to go.

    No covers need to be discarded. Only the heat shield for the brace. Plus the braces do work and stiffen up the chassis, plus add blue :) So regardless if it’s a Prius or not, they work and help the handling of the car.
