the front one is a bitch to get in...

if you can do springs then you'll be fine with sways.

I heard the front is a pain. I don't believe the hype. Some jack stands, a jack for the engine cradle and I think 16 bolts other than the sway, and you're in. It's not a difficult just takes time. I was quoted $70 for the front only. The back, any one with a couple of tools can do it. Easier than unbolting and adding an exhaust. I'm also still debating this. I don't know why.

For me money had gotten real tight lately. I haven't gotten an alignment yet mainly due to the fact of adding the $250 Hotchkis sway bars. $250 + $100 + $70 = a little too much right now. I always said sways are the best thing to improve handling on any car. People think springs, lower, or whatever and that's not true. Even replacing the stock bushings for a harder bushing around a stock sway bar will decrease the body roll. Add that with a larger sway and some polyurethene bushings and your in or over your head. Example Hotchkis, TRD, Whiteline, or ST. All incorporate larger bars and new bushings if i'm correct. Some people here wouldn't know how to attach an s2000 antenna and want new sways or will like to or more. I can't understand that or changing their whole suspension goemetry by some hack because they want a lower car.
