Got one from ebay for $290 CAD including ship and import fees.

I will have tuesday and will install asap..hopefully after work?

Cant wait and thanks for reply/s.

Cant believe I found one on ebay for such small ship charge($20.00 CAD)As you probaly know ebay has some good prices but shipping often throws the price way,way up.Bar came from florida btw.

You got ripped off bro.

For $40 more you could have gotten a heavy duty Whiteline unit.

Getting ripped off is nothing new to me so no biggie.

As long as it does what it claims to do I will be satisfied.

I'm curious to know your feedback after the install.

I had my 2008 lowered on MI Springs, Tokico Blues (up front only), and one of the bigger rear anti-roll bars. Car felt pretty good.

I've since put the stock springs back on, on Tokico Reds, and no rear bar. No where near as fun, but still fun. I take long "sweeper" on ramps and a pretty good speed. I think, the biggest difference will come in the form of like, slalom, where quick left/right transitions will take place. That's also something that could possibly be handled by stiffer springs, though.

I don't regret losing my rear bar. In the future, if I lower it again, I may not even look to get another bar. Pretty sure.

But let us know what you think! :)

I wonder what the OP thinks of it as well. I know for me the TRD rsb really helped the car rotate and bias more towards oversteer. This is due to the super soft rear MI spring I have relative to the front. It also helps that I have kYB struts up front and Tokiko blues in the rear

Had it installed for a few days(TRD bar)

Huge difference in my opinion.Some of my favourite long smooth turns I can take faster with less roll.Absolutely worth every penny and zero regrets.

The car just feels tighter overall.

I have the MicroImage lowering springs they are so stiff in the front, it's not drivable in the winter.

Corrected the severe understeer with a TRD rear sway bar.

Now that i have the swaybar i think the front could be a little tighter.

Like I said it was instantly noticable and actually quite surprised on the improvement when turning.

I never had one with stock suspension. I bought mine because of the issue I had with understeer with my lowering springs.

I know what a swaybar does and how the physical principals work.

It will cost about $400.00 CAD and want to know if for a regular daily driver will I notice anything substantial.

Thanks for any and all opinions feedback.

Car is lowerd 1.5 BTW running 205/50/R16 ( Michelin PILOT SPORT A/S 3+)
Second hand bars come hell of a lot cheaper starting from£25 here in the UK
