Steeda radiator support weight

Does anyone know the weight difference between the stock radiator support and the Steeda radiator support??

Also, is there a cheaper alternative to the Ford tubular bumper support?? Anyone use the bumper support?? Again what is the weight difference? Is there any fitment issues like the bumper cover being loose??

Has anybody run these with a stiffer front seat bar? I like the weight savings for the price but not if I can't actually use a sway bar.

Bumper bar is worth 10lb if you have the LS splitter bracket installed.

Did you weigh out the parts? I should have weighted everything when I did it but I guessing it is more then 10 pounds.

FR said it was six pounds on the bumper itself. Then you lose the splitter bracket which should be more then four pounds, mine felt like more. We did weigh the M-17757-MB bumper bar and a factory bumper, it was six pounds lighter and the factory bumper used was modified by removing the square plates that attach to the frame.

Yes, I weighed the OEM Bumper, Foam, and Splitter Bracket and subtracted the FRPP Bumper Bar and Tow Hook -- just over 10lb -- I rounded down.... The OEM Bumper beam is surprisingly light.

The good news is this weight reduction is as far forward as possible.
