the toms is that high?Don't know about that. You'll hardly see an improvement over the stock piece, if any at all. Sure, if it didn't have one stock then yeah it'd be mostly worth it. The Tom's brace is probably $600-$1000. You're better off saving for something more useful, like coilovers or better tires. The stock brace has the middle piece I believe you're referring to. It's just covered in the pic by the rear subframe. It's underneath that not shown.
