Okay, so I have had this in now for about 3 weeks, so I have had time to develop an opinion.



So, I would say that it is most definitely worth it! The car is much more stable in turns, especially on-ramps. It is really what I noticed first. Now, I dunno how there is so much flex at the control arms, but there is! This is how I know. I have a turn that I sometimes have to gun, just to get into traffic, from a stop sign. There is a curve to the street, and cars keep coming, and it is kind of a blind spot. Its right near my house. Anyways, I was getting the damn wheel hop every time I took off, turning. Well, needless to say, that has disappeared!! I have actually tried to make it happen, and I have failed. Like I said, I dunno why there was so much flex that allowed so much wheel hop, but this fixed it completely! Just for that reason alone, I would say it is absolutely worth the 100 bucks!

That is all.

only draw back i see from it, is when the oil is changed on the engine, the bar will get drenched in it.

but that is miniscule to the tight fealing it gives.

that was my first thought to let it drain out slowly, until there wasnt that much pressure, and it would just dribble out.

Does it block the drain plug sufficiently that someone who is not paying attn could cross-thread the plug? (I.E. I do not change my own oil).
Also, how much does it weigh?
Thanks.

If I was capable of installing the Steeda swaybar kit on my 07, should I be able to install this, Nemesis?

So a tech would not have any problems getting his wrench up there then.

Thanks
