It does prevent body roll, how much is based on the thickness and stiffness of the bar itself. I am thinking of getting one myself!

Are we talking the RB sway bar or the RB rear chassis brace?

I believe it's supposed to box-in the rear subframe and stiffen it up a bit. I've had one for years meow but never installed it, lol. Maybe I should one day?

I noticed a huge difference with the beatrush ppf brace that ties the ppf into the rear subframe. But I doubt you'd really notice a difference with the racing beat piece.

holy shit though. i've searched and searched and searched for a pic with those two pieces together. meow I KNOW!

i'm assuming two things...
1) dylan, that's your nb?
2) the fitment would be the same on the na.

The PPF brace definitely does something......the rear subframe brace? I don't know. I have the old, almost extinct 949 brace and noticed a slight change.
