Just wanted to get a few comments from people who own the TRD yellow sways. I realize that the is300 is set up to understeer out of the box, so what effect have the yellow sways had on that aspect of handling? Are you finding that the car is now simply "neutral"? or does the thickness of the rear bar give the car a tendency to oversteer now?

Also....owners of the hotchkis bars can chime in with their comments as well! :D

I feel like there is a little bit more oversteer, but the car is definitely closer to neutral than with the stocks. I can say that it is much much easier to knock the rear tires out of traction now as compared to before...

The main benefit for me personally with the sways is that the car is much more stable in corners. I feel safer when the car isn't leaning like crazy when taking a corner at high speeds, for some reason... :lol:

I love the yellows! I think it compliments the Tein Flex very well. When I only had the sways on, there was a bit more oversteer. But with the coilvers, it definetly is neutral. I can now take those twisty roads with more confidence.

The Yellows are great. I'd recommend them over the Hotchkis ways only if you're not the most aggressive driver. They're still WAY better than the stock sways. Just the Hotchkis are a little stiffer than the TRD, but the TRDs are already MUCH stiffer than stock.
