Default Strut Bar in engine

Is it allright to ride around with this on at least at city speeds for a day or two?

No. Don't even move the car. It'* intregal to the design of your front suspension.

Ask the 87-91 guys that put these on from 92-99 donor cars Makes a HUGE difference. You CAN run without it, but only if you remove the center span bar itself, and leave the 2 end brackets properly bolted and torqued to the strut nuts. Don't move the car without these 2 brackets properly attached.
