Does an STB make any noticeable difference in the reduction of chassis flex. I haven't modded my suspension(no wheels/tires or drop).

Yes it does make a subtle difference. More noticeable the harder you push the car and/or the more suspension mods you have.

Got the Neuspeed one, after I just put that on with no other mods I could really notice a difference in the front end. Just being tighter on corners.....After the rear sway went on a little less noticeable but still much better than stock.

Is it me or does it seem like the Greddy would still allow flex due to the three piece design. Wouldn't the "hinged" area flex?

You still want it to flex a bit or it would break to pieces. We can get you guys the Greddy or Neuspeed strut bar. PM me for pricing if interested.

i'm sure it might be improved slightly...but the 6spd. contects to the firewall, something these others don't do. i've seen people use them together, but it might be pointless.

spend the $100 on something else, like ground wires or sways.

I have the Greddy strut tower bar sitting in my garage. Going to put in on soon with my coilovers, will post pics once I get it installed. So far all I can say is that it is very nice looking...
