I also have the Tanabe strut bar, works well with the mid chassis brace.

Not gonna get the hatch strut bar, too much stuff going on back there.

Curious on the traction bar, but I've heard mixed results when you have independent suspension.

Also looking at the Eibach sway bars.

So after the successful install and great results of TB Performance Products Mid Chassis Brace I got looking around at what else they have.

I asked about the Rear Mid Chassis Brace being offered for the tC2. Products

He affirmed that it would work on the iM, so guess what I am buying next.

I was looking at these chassis braces too. I added several to my 2009 Corolla S Turbo and it made a huge difference so I'll look at adding them to my new 2017 Corolla iM too.

This car is never gonna be quick, but it can handle quite well.

It would be quick with turbo power like my Corolla S, it's a beast with 230HP now!

No one has done it yet, but I don't see why not.

I wish Toyota would offer a performance model of this car

I was looking at those part I have a TRD strut bar on my IM got it from a TC that came in as a used car to the dealer. It made cornering night and day difference. Are those TB Parts worth the money?

I absolutely recommend them. Makes cornering a dream.

The only issue that can arise is that they stick down from the frame a solid inch and a half. If you have a significant drop this can add to some clearance issues

I remember I made a similar subframe brace for my 300zx 20 years ago out of aluminum bar and yes they do make a great difference. But yes, careful going over crap, as I remember getting mine ripped right off the car. That one only hung down about 3/8 inch.
