I recently picked up a new to me 18 Sport. If anyone has lowering springs or a strut tower brace in good condition please let me know, If love to buy some for the right price!
Thank all!

Congrats. The strut tower brace definitely improves ride quality but I just installed the rear sway bar and that really improves cornering. Can be installed in less than an hour too.

Just know unless someone is selling their car, don't expect to find a used one. I would suggest waiting for a Steeda sale if the price is too steep.
You spent guessing $19,000, go ahead and spend another $300 to improve your car in a big way that does not mess up the warranty. That same $300 will feel like you spent $2000 with the improved driving experience.

I prefer the factory strut tower brace.

I never saved the photos but I found the original thread here: Strut Tower Brace Resting on Reservoir

That's why the Steeda strut tower brace did absolutely zero for handling/feel when I installed mine. My Steeda brace also kept rubbing on the brake reservoir, and Steeda had replaced my bar with another of the same design. Several members here claimed there were 2 bar designs, and a re-design for the Sport brace. Both times the brace I got from Steeda directly was verified 100% to be a Sport brace, but basically rested on the brake reservoir. I returned it and chalked it up to half-assed Steeda engineering/design.

FWIW my SHO and my Explorer both came from the factory with a strut tower brace. I see the 2020 Explorer also comes from the factory with one installed.
