Traction Bar

Just installed, traction bar. ☺️

Now I have the two mid braces and traction bar from TB Performance Parts and a front strut bar.

I use my hatch too often to install the rear strut bar, but still curious about the rear sway bar upgrade.

The iM and tC both use the same rear sway bar - at least the same partnumber. Should be able to pick up an aftermarket swaybar for a tC and give it a shot. Be curious to hear what you think/find on that.

Can you say any of the items you've added so far give more results than the others? Strut bar -vs- Mid Brace, etc?

Is the rear mid brace the one for a tC2? They don't list one for an iM.

Ya, the tC2 shares a lot of parts.

Daniel, (the owner of TB), originally offered the two mid braces for the iM but the muffler is slightly different and caused vibrations on the iM. I was able to make it work by redrilling the holes a bit and adding just a little spacer, but Daniel decided not to list it for the iM.

Altogether these parts make for one great cornering car

No problem. His stuff is great.

There is a brace that he was selling but is now removed because it did rub a bit. As I mentioned I redrilled the holes and it fits fine.

So the TB exhaust brace drill the holes bigger and still use washers to space it away from the exhaust??
The parts listed fit a TC Scion but I was told they should fit the iM below

Eibach part number Front Sway Bar # 82101.310 25 mm /Rear Sway Bar 82101.312 29 mm buy new end links ........have to drop rear exhaust to remove sway bar....look up Derrick Aquino on YouTube has a install video of the rear sway bar on his TC shows some installs of TB performance braces to !! The front&rear Sway Bar was listed on eBay for $600.00 for both as of Sept 2019
They do not list anything for the iM on Eibach ‘s home page ....
