Can't wait to see the pics. From what I've heard that swaybar is going to be killer. I've got it on my list of mods as well.

A couple months ago I installed the rear antisway bar and front bushings on mine. Seems to me that there is a notced lack of sway on those 25 MPH square cornors ;-) The car also feels more stable on the local freeway at speed too. The intallation is a breeze. Other than a torque wrench and sockets, it was handy to have a set of ramps. Only one thing on the downside: the local car wash is now out - seems that it likes to catch the left rear anti sway bar bushing which pops off the bushing boot and spiral retaing spring.

Good to know. I have had several beloved cars with strained relations at the automatic car wash...glad to hear my iQ (w/ rear swaybar) can join their company. Because of all avoided drama I have long opted for plan B...hand washing. That, however is a subject for another thread.

So easy to hand wash the iQ. Just takes a few minutes. I'd be afraid to take it to the car wash, might get lost or shrunk.

I haven't seen before and after pics but it appears to hang low , does it look like it would be an issue as far as being damaged , hitting something on the road ? It's something I want to get but don't want it to break where it connects .

Don't you already have tint on your windows?

From what I hear, you will definitely notice a difference with the sway bar. :) Do you lowering springs also?

Can't wait to see new pics!

Good to know about the sway bar and auto car washes - I'm getting my rear antisway bar installed next week. A friend showed me how to wash my car just the other day. Timely advice, it seems. :)
