    Ok,

    so turns out the Megan racing front strut for Prius's 2016+ doesn't fit the prime.

    Mounting holes are the same. looks like everything would fit but the clearances for our headlights vs the Prius Gen 4? is different and the headlights interfere.

    Anyone try this yet? I was just trying to get rid of some body roll on turns.

    Ok,

    While there are many different techniques to try to tighten up a chassis, I would put a single strut bar at the lower end of ability to do this, especially for a street driven car. This of course is my opinion, but it's based off of years of Motorsports competition.

    Though tires are a more expensive upgrade, I'd tell you that you'd get about a 10 fold enjoyment factor out of the right set of upgraded tires. Everything has its pros & cons....
