getting mine replaced, so I thought an upgrade would be in order. Don't want GT or Typhoon style just something better than stock. Car is dropped on 17" XR6 rims

Maybe an SR one would be the go ? (Thats if there is a difference) Please post pics of your suggestions
Cheers

Get the XR rear then. Ebay that s**t up. What's wrong with the GT or Typhoon look? It's f**k sexy :twisted:

The lower section of the bar is the only part you need to replace, it is the same as a Ghia.
The SR one is WAY too dear.

It you fit the XR lower, you will need to fit XR side skirts as the XR will not match the XT skirts.

I just don't thin the XR rear will suit as I don't really want to go for the XR look

You could pickup an XT rear bar at your local wrecker for about $200. I had to replace my front bar a year ago and picked mine up from a wrecker for around that price.
