They're both pretty much the same. My advice though is if you want a STB go for front AND back. With just the front the back becomes very loose and unstable. If I pull a turn hard enough the back end will slide around, or if I slam on the brakes real hard the back end gets a little squirrelly.

I dont think there will be a noticeable difference in handling between the two. Just pick the one that looks nicer to you.

and can anyone second the thought that u should put on both, not just one?

i didnt really feel anything from either, then again i was already lowered and on lo-pros. but i have heard that if you do one, you should do the other.

I believe on ebay there is a generic brand front and rear stb pair for sale. Someone asked about it before and I want to say lvemy3100 recommended it. Dont quote me on that though.

the Co. name is "driving gear".... they sell both front and rear braces.... not bad pricing for what you get...

I actually use a rear brace from them on my malibu...
