Well while I was up at steedas shop in Valdosta yesterday I picked up one of their new sway bars that where just released earlier this week. So I decided to install it tonight

Here is the new sway


Here it is compared to the stock sway



Since I just installed it I haven't noticed a difference, but I doubt I will till I find some good corners to test it on.

Maybe at the steeda stampede in a few weeks.

Wow, that stock one looks sad next to it's replacement! Hope it turns out to be worth it; a small drop might help with handling as well.

A little off topic, but is that a Yingling (sp?) in the photo? I had some for the first time while I was in Orlando earlier this year and they make some nice beer! [cheers]

nice, i assume the 20% weight difference is a pound or 2 and not anything significant?

Why do the corners look press bent instead of mandrel bent? That's now the weakest part, and the most important area! And by the looks of the diameter, I'd say it's hollow pipe, and not bar. Not saying Steeda makes junk at all!!! Just kinda curious before I spend some dough. Ya know? ;)

From what I understand press bending is generally used for solid steel for structural purposes where as mandrel is used for hollow to reduce the rippling effect. There's also one less bend per side in the Steeda bar over the stock bar. I could be way off though.

Yuengling FTW! Nutty 5.0, Im from 10 min where they make that but havent been home in a long time. It's weird how you start to miss it lmao! Oh, oh wait, Nice RSB! I cant decide if I want to get it or not though. That and I can't decide between the H&R or Eibachs

RSB, Lager or Black & Tan?
Hmmm, how about all three!

That good 'ol lager will do just fine! I've been in Colorado long enough now where the Coors Light is getting to me. I need to get back home where the beer is good and Salene the death dealer (My Focus) is at sea level. 6,500 ft above sucks the performance right out of everything

Some quality forced induction will fix that...

I've been drinking yuengling for so many years I've grown tired of it. I used to really enjoy it when pretty much the only place you could get it was Pittsburgh. Since they started distributing distances away it just doesn't taste the same. So how about that sway bar?
