BEATRUSH front member support bars install/review!!

Well, ive installed a whole slew of beatrush products and there arent too many install/reviews of them. Mostly because people opt to buy other brands or similar products that do the same function.

Anyhow just thought id share...

For the install items you will need
3/8 ratchet (or whatever you have around)
19mm socket
12mm socket
12 closed/open ended wrench
extension if you must
allen/hex key for beatrush provided bolts

Click the image to open in full size.

First, jack the front end up and get out your jackstands (safety first!)
Then proceed to take out the 19mm main bolt on the lower control arm (towards rear)
then you can take out the qty:2 12mm bolts that you will reuse to mount the support bars ( see picture) note: you will need to take out the 12mm bolt on the inside of the frame rail area, not the one on the outside as seen in the picture. Also...on the drivers side i found it better to just use a open ended 12mm wrench since there are hard lines that run right by the bolt head on the inside of the frame rail.

Click the image to open in full size.

Now you will replace one of the 12mm bolts with the provided beatrush bolt. i found it easier to get this one started first...then i proceeded to put the main 19mm control arm back in. Note: do not tighten anything down all the way until you have at least started all 3 bolts.

i used some of my spare Hondalock (blue) on the threads just so nothing backs out due to excessive vibrations from the semi-solid beatrush front mount and propellar shaft bushings. Its not needed by any means but i just like it for a little extra piece of mind. plus its good against vibration and moisture. haha!

Click the image to open in full size.

Finished with both support bars and front performance bar installed!

Ill come back and update after i drive it a bit more for the review...stay tuned! lol

Anything ever come of this? Saw a few people running these, wondering if they are worthwhile.

Sounds like he didn't notice a thing if he never responded. Because of this, I think I'll pass on this item and go with the cusco instead.

these are almost exactly like the cusco, if these dont do $hit then what makes you think the cusco's will? its a solid brace, theres not much else u can do to change it.

Or pass on both? Mostly added weight. Evo is a stiff platform.

Well, there's more options with the Cusco. I was referring to the Cusco setup, not the exact replacement.
