Default Racingline Performance Traction Rod Kit

Has anyone here installed the Traction Rod Kit from Racingline for road use? I am asking because I was going to get the FSTB (which I should have ordered a LONG time ago) and I also saw these for sale:

2004-2008 Nissan Maxima Traction Rods

The only reviews I have really been able to find that go into detail are about track use. If I use my car on streets alone, are these worth it? Any personal recommendations or experience would be great.

Edit: Forgot to ask one last thing: is the $20.00 USD steel upgrade worth it? And, what color is the steel and what color is the chromoly? I am assuming the black isn't the upgraded kit, but I am asking to make sure.

It all depends on how you drive personally if it will help you in normal driving. They try to correct torque steer and wheel hop from heavy acceleration so if you drive like a bat out of hell, it'll help. If you drive cautiously I don't think it'd be that big of an upgrade. I have been thinking about getting them but I'd rather get springs first lol As for the stainless, I have no idea if its worth it. If its pure stainless it should be strong and durable as hell but chromoly is used in race car roll cages I think so it should also be strong.

I installed them on my 06 Max (Progress springs, Racingline FSTB) and I noticed a significant difference on straight line take off but more so noticed it under hard braking. The car no longer shimmy stops it just tucks and stops. For a hundred dollar mod I say worth it.
