TRD Sways Installed...
It's difficult to get pics of the sway bars once they're installed, however I can post a review... thumbsup

The car handles the turns much better now - I can take them faster and it feels a lot more stable. The only disadvantage is that the stock endlinks may become worn on aftermarket suspension such as my TRD springs. This is because they're used to the stock ride height and the drop causes added strain... To alleviate this, I plan to purchase the Hypermotive endlinks for both front and rear (pic is included below). These are adjustable endlinks and are built to much higher standards than the ones we have from the factory. Therefore, just set them to 1" lower than stock and be on your way... no worries mate. They're also useful for those that auto-x since adjusting the endlinks takes very little time.

Finally, I'll also get the Hypermotive lower arm bar (2nd pic). I'm not expecting much from this piece in terms of stiffening the chassis, however it will complete my list of Hypermotive products - thumbsup


2 Pics follow...

Congrats Sultan especially on the lower arm bar. I'm glad you got it. You are definitely doing it right other than the sways. You should have went Hotchkis on those and probably the street anti-roll bars. The hypermotive endlinks are amazing, but takes some trial and error to get set up right like any other adjustable endlinks. Start small and go from the 1" deviation unless you got the specs from the source and still you will need to tweak those. Those things could realy adjust you're sways, handling, and comfort like you couldn't believe whether it's correct or not. I hope you have at least a day to figure out things or PM me because I would like to know the length of the stock endlinks from center joint to center and end to end anyways and maybe I could help just a tad if any.

How hard is it to put on sways? Can it be done by someone who doesn't know much about how to fix cars or would it have to be done by a shop? If it can't be done easily by myself at home, how much do you think it would cost to get it done at a shop?

I had them installed at my dealership... but I've got a sweet hook-up there so prices are much lower than what you'll be charged. I heard the rear sway is an easy install but the front one takes time...

^ My dealer wants about $500 to install them regardless of how long it takes because their TRD book says it should take "x" amount of time. Every dealer around here operates like that. Hence I get the shaft frown
