The Sway Bar Thread

According to the spec sheet the stock sway bars are 23.2mm Front and 22.0mm Rear. That seems unusually large for stock sway bars. Are they hollow? I wonder how big aftermarket bars will be.

As for aftermarket bars, you're more than likely be able to come across a set from TRD before the other brands due to the Auris. Going to keep an eye out for them.

If those are indeed the size for the stock bars I see no reason to upgrade for a car this size / weight... possibly stiffer endlinks depending on the OEM materials used, but those are pretty stout for a car this size.

I have found its always a great idea to upgrade the RSB to at least a 26mm size....You will feel the difference when taking corners or a swift lane change.

Dont really need to get fancy aftermarket Endlinks either....MOOG Brand are good if they make them for the iM....Just OEM are good.

Imho the rear double wishbone is just great so not much sense on tightening it up ..unless you're autoXn' then by all means let us know of something stronger with links & review

Read & I believe this to be true that the front strut bar may be just an accessory as suspension is mounted close to the frame & Lower chassis braces will be more beneficial..

BUT If you're like me & others that are keen on upgrades you have or develop this little sensitivity in every mod done to the car due to being a modder & being in tuned to what you love in this case the car lols

So I could order an TC2 Eibach rear sway and it will fit on the iM? I'd be installing it myself.
