I for one got the brace bundle & had it installed by DDM Works on my coupe. I had 2 2007 gxps & kept them stock. In all honesty the coupe seems a bit stiffer compared to my 2007s but i probably would leave my coupe stock if i did it again as i hardly push it any more in the corners. I have never raced on the track nor wrenched since the 70s so my knowledge is very limited to most on the site but i enjoy reading every ones threads as its always a learning curve.

After installation he saw that the frame pulled together a little bit (I forget the exact measurements). I'm not saying that the venom bar made a drastic difference to my handling, but it seems to tie the right and left frames together solidly.
My LS does that for me.

i replaced the dried out factory tires at the same time i installed the bundle so i really can't say which made the most difference. the car does ride a bit rougher but handles a lot better than it did before. i have the thick backbone. i had ordered the 3/8 one but they said they were out and offered me the thicker one at the same price. deal.
