Just received JDM TRD sway bars today which much better and thicker than OEM one, going to install it on this Sat but have question do you install the sway bars with the cruiser off the ground or can I just crawl underneath unbolt and install the new one? Also do I need alignment after install the sway bars?

Thank you

Is it just the pic, or do the TRD's here look skimpy in comparison to the JDM's?

Yeah its Toyota and just beefed up the sway bar to get better handling and cornering on every day road performance.Also do I need to lube (Anti- Seize lubricant) / or grease the bushing on the installation?

LX_Treme,

You can install the swaybars without jacking up the vehicle. You might want to put anti-seize on the threads but not the bushing itself unless they squeek. You also won't need an alignment just for swaybars.
Looks nice!

Do you have Lockers? The reason I ask is that the harness for the front runs along the sway bar. The bar has 2 crimped spots in it where a mounting bracket of sorts bolts around it. I didn't see those spots in the pics, which isn't to say they aren't there, but I'd check them out before tearing into the truck if you have the lockers.

Are the bushings polyurethane? If so, you'll want to apply synthetic chassis grease liberally. I've put Daizen sways on my sedan and it came with this grease. Also heard Mobile 1 grease works.

No alignment needed after install.

sa-weet!

Pretty cool, man. Great find. Being thicker, are you using them to decrease body roll versus purely increased off-road strength? Is decreased body roll a bad idea when flexing? Or is it mostly for on-tarmac use?

Also are you retaining the stock links--does TRD make solid end links for this truck?

Those things are purdy!....:hillbilly

I would install them with the vehicle at standard ride height, with a loaded suspension. Do not lubricate the bushings.

Great stuff for a hiway vehicle. I'm not too sure about off road though. Possible articulation restrictions due to the increased radius perhaps?

Those would be nice on a lifted rig with some disconnects. Yota Mag, this is LX_Treme, his junk doesn't even get wheeled at Starbucks like our Master Poser Ty's junk.
