^^^^Yes, that is why Toyota fitted them.^^^^

If you can get hold of a stainless steel pair, (not cheap, see the link below), I'd advise you to put them back on the car.

Or mild steel bars, costing more, below:-

Mine is an import and never had any cancer bars until I fitted some 2/3 years ago. Made no difference.

You may not *feel* the difference it doesn't mean they don't do anything!

Triangulating any box will make it stronger. Removing triangulation will make it weaker.

You may not feel anything, but you will probably notice in a big crash!
