ac schnitzer rear strut brace questions

Anyone have the acs strut brace? Pretty sure I want to order one but I have a couple questions...what kind of install time does it take? Is there a palpable difference in feel around the track? A quick review would be awesome! Thanks

I highly doubt it. There's hardly is any demand for it as it is. I'll be buying mine through peter@*******perts... good people at wheel experts and no BS
