Availability of sway bars for IS350?

Does anyone know what sway bars are available, if any, for the IS350 besides Eibach?

I heard the Tanabe ones for the IS300 are sweet, but it doesn't look if Tanabe has any yet.

Also, any feedback on Eibach's product quality, and how their bars "feel"?

I'm not planning on any spring/damper upgrade yet, but I'm very interested in reducing body roll without sacrificing ride quality.

Actually the sway bars are listed on the Eibach site with a part number. Have a look.

What would you do with a "strut" for an IS? It has shocks.

Original poster is a bit confused with his terminology. It's a strut tower bar... it just links the two opposing strut towers to reduce flex. Limited benefit in most modern applications short of an American made boat, but it looks nice

We don't have struts OR strut towers. We have shocks and shock towers. LOL

I think STBs can look nice, but I think they will look pretty poor on this car due to the engine trim. The application above looks like ass.
