You mean a front strut tower bar? Yes they do make that much of a difference in handling, without a doubt.

it keeps your car tighter when turning, its used to keep everything even by holding both sides of the bay together

Body roll is your worst enemy. Slap on a set of strut bars and you will definitely feel the difference. Add a nice suspension setup, and some wide wheels/tires, and you'll get some whiptastic handling

i know the h-brace connects at the same points that a front lower tie bar connect too(in the pic below) but the other 2 points im not 100% sure but i think they bolt up to the front sway bar d-brackets. someone correct me if im wrong..
