This order arrived quickly and was well packaged, but there are several places along either arm where the paint had already chipped or is already bubbling up. I dont expect the paint on these will last very long, but the welds and fitment are good. Definitely cleans the rear of the car up and makes it more predictable on the limit, but I'm really glad I'm the only person who has to look at them.
I e-mailed Beatrush and they confirmed that the brace is made out of steel. I didn't want to take a risk with aluminum because this brace takes a real beating, and I have seen how the car has destroyed similar aluminum braces. This rear brace is the best brace I've installed on my 2000 mr2. I immediately felt the change, it inspires more confidence when pushing it, and the rear end doesn't feel as wobbly on bumpy roads as it used to. It firms up the rear end and makes for a more pleasant ride when driving normaly, I highly recommend both Beatrush and the brace.
