I ordered mine directly from OMP. It was $109 granted that was a few years ago.

It fit great and works well. I've had it off on a few occasions and you can really tell the difference when you come into a corner. I'm very pleased with it.

I can attest that the OMP strut bar is nice and very noticeable when turning.

what sort of difference does it make? I just ordered front and rear bars for my swift. Does it hold the body still more because everytime i turn my car tneds to nosedive slightly. looking forwards to installing them.

The bars hold the chassis from flexing through corners. While the car will fell tighter they are not mant to stop suspension issues like nosediving. You may need to look into a fresh pair of struts to prevent that along with stiffer springs.
