"Slumming" on the Patriot forum, I came upon a thread on strut braces. Had never heard of the concept and researched it further on the web, before deciding a 114.-$ investment was worth the risk and ordered one from below:
It was fairly easy to put in, and seems to do what it is supposed to: improved chassis rigidity w/ less understeer, noticeably better cornering and truer tracking in general. Imo, an easy mod that is worth the price (maybe not the 300.- or so Mopar charges for its brace).
P.S.: It's designed to fit the Caliber, and it does fit the Compass.
Just noticed the link doesn't work directly: go to product overview - caliber - suspension...
