Okay, I didn't take pics because the underside of my car is filthy and the sway bar isn't much to look at.

HOWEVER...

This thing freakin' ROCKS! I installed it in my driveway, on ramps in a manner of about 15 minutes. EASY! The only special tool you will need is a torque wrench. You just can't estimate 40 ft. lbs.

Anyway, after that cake install I took 'er out to some twisty spots and DAMN was I impressed. The thing feels rock solid around corners. Body roll is simply eliminated and I was able to push it through corners with extreme ease.

My other suspension mods are TRD Springs and the Hotchkis front strut bar. I am running on the RacingHart/TRD 18" wheels with 215/35ZR18 Pirelli P-Zero Nero tires.

With the way it feels, I'm willing to put it up against nearly anything on a road course. Just awesome!

Grizzly HIGHLY recommends!

I've never used a torque wrench on any of my cars when I mod it. I'm still here! (knock on wood.)

that's sweet, I want one too. Does TRD make a front strutbar as well?
Actually, they do now. It's the same style as the Hotchkis one for the tC, but badged as a TRD part and painted red.

If I can find a pic and such, I'll post it up.
