I dont want to speak for any of the vendors, and I dont think they can post prices on the forums. Just pm El Chino or carson toyota, theyre both top-notch in customer service. Theyve both helped me and given me advice even though they knew I wasnt going to buy anything from them. Great guys, Rich and Steve.

Heres a breakdown, just because i'm bored:

Stock Sways:
Front Diameter: 27mm (Hollow)
Rear Diameter: 14mm (Solid)

Ltuned "Red" Sways (Eibach)
Price: ~$250
Front Diameter: 28mm (Solid)
Rear Diameter: 17mm (Solid)

TRD "Yellow" Sways
Price: ~$370
Front Diameter: 30mm (Solid)
Rear Diameter: 19mm (Solid)



And something everyone should consider, the hotchkis setup. .Net members who have them installed claim they are stiffer than the TRD Yellows :eek: .

Front Diameter: 32mm (Hollow)
Rear Diameter: 19mm (Hollow)

Ali/ Immanis/Graphite......


I have a perfect set of A51 sways avail. used for a short time & in excellent shape...

they are reportedly VERY SIMILAR to the TRD yellows in roll stiffness etc
per a few others feedback & comments...

i have not driven the TRD yellos so i cannot say for sure.. .but i DID have the Eibach/ Ltuned & the A51's are much stiffer than those & they are a little bit less stiff than the Hotchkis setup that i am running now... so i do think they ARE very close to the TRD's & definitely cheaper......

....definitely worth considering :D $300 shipped anywhere or Installed if you are local.... :wink:



PS: the Hotchkiss sways were $300 for the rest of June in a promotional deal set up for us by Ganz/ JC after the Carson meet...

I am not sure they have NOT gone up to the retail price of 360-$380.... by now ... PLUS tax & shipping...better check that out...

We're about to install the Hotchkis bars on one of cars right now (Steve and I are still fighting over them). They will replace the TRD Yellow bars we have. Just LOOKING at the Hotchkis bars, I think they are stiffer. They look pretty hardcore. ;)

Oh, yeah, we'll have them (the Hotchkis sways) in the store soon too. Yay.
