i haven't rubbed it on the ground yet. i have noticed my almost 0 body roll. its great. i do think i have some over steering going on tho, they need to make a rear one! one of the 4 bolts that needed to come off to put this on almost didn't come off, it was crazy. i was like this better come off or i'ma be pissed. they were starting to talk about cutting it off...i was not in the mood to spend more. then it slowly start moving. haha


yea i wrapped it on saturday, and installed it earlier today. i'm pissed tho cuz when i was putting it back on, i over tightened one of the 9 nuts on the studs, and snapped one off....half of it is stuck in there.not good. so i'm running on 8 bolts irght now haha. andi just realized i forgot to put anti sieze or something on it...lolololololz.........oh well, i don't plan on taking it off anytime soon hahhaa

Say Rob, I don't have any issues w/ my Eibach sportline system, clearence wise. No issues w/ oversteer either & I have Steeda's 28.6mm bar too.

Now all you guy's w/ cfm's 4-point lower stress bar's need to upgrade your lca's w/ cfm's tubular control arm's. Lot stiffer, lighter & adjustable camber. For pix= checkout my profile & mod idea's.

Then I'd add cfm's control arm's & a Torsen. That'll suck the nose around the corners.

I cant afford a torsen I wish I could thought LOL, I was told by Carl that it's not a good idea to do a front sway bar with blown out shocks and struts as it would result in unpredictable handling.
