^^ yea it seems like people have that issue with the JIC brace as well...i guess it's just the way our car is setup...they want to make sure it doesn't rub/rattle i guess...

Danielm are these parts in addition to front and rear braces? I have the trd front and rear braces. What exactly do these tie together? looks like some sort of stru brace for the bottom of the car?

The tie bar, goes in the back under the differential (not sure exactly where it connects) and the 4 rods replace the stock rods... the toms are lighter and stronger.

Is there someone running the TOM's ADVOX suspension??

How does it compare with the Tein Flex's??

I want my suspension expenses to be really worth the quality

I posted about this a couple of years ago, with a link to 20 or 30 pictures on Yahoo. I took the pictures around the middle of 2001 when all the braces were installed on my car at Denovo in Torrance. The braces were purchased through Steve Ganz at Carson Toyota. The link is noted below, and I apologize for the size, but I don't know how to lift it off the page and paste it here as a HTML. If you type it in, you can look at the install showing the car on the rack. The braces were painted yellow just so I could point out to any potential purchaser what I had hung on the car, including the TRD sways. I have since installed Koni's, and StopTech 332's on the front axle.

Nice post. Those look a little beefier than my trd braces.
Danielm, let us know if you feel the difference with the extra braces. We've got very similar setups.

At the moment I have:

Tein RAs
Ltuned Sways
JIC front strat bar
Tanabe rear bar
Tanabe under braces

That is what the 3 toms parts will be adding to. It should help...?..

I was wondering, did you make it so the rear TRD's dont rub the resonator? How did you go in doing this, will it rub a L-tuned?
