new suspension mods

hey guys just got a TRD rear strut bar and a RMM front strut bar, both are really nice and gave me a noticable difference in control. here are pics. i repainted the RMM bar gunmetal, the pic does the paint no justice. 5 layers of gunmetal eek

CT well i have yet to do the drilling but connecting just the sides and removing the engine plastics was about 30 min. the whole thing would have only taken 15 min if i didn't have to find my tools.

Trog- i just painted over the chrome. it was red before, i stripped it then primered one coat, then 5 layers of gumetal wheel paint. Wet sanded the final coat and added 5 layers of really good clear coat.

CT - it isn't THAT hard. Just get all the tools ready and TAKE YOUR TIME. Installing a rear strut bar is very very easy. YOU CAN DO IT! thumbsup
