Thankyou for the clarification.The IQ already has a front sway bar not a strut bar. Can't really notice the difference with the new stiffer front bushings that came with the rear sway bar kit. Toyota does not have a strut bar for the IQ yet but Tanabe does have one.
With no expectatiions,comes no dissapointment.just sayin.I would say the rear sway bar is more vital than the front strut bar, at least as far as noticing an improvement after adding the part. I just notice way more lean in the rear and I'm basing my facts off that.
My question is, how much difference does the front strut bar really make? The front end is compact as it is and I'm not really sure how much pressure there is to flex between the top end of the strut geometry. Is this even worth spending money on?
I plan to get the rear sway bar... and then maybe I'll get the strut tower bar just to complete the suspension package... but I really don't know what to expect from it.
Amen to that!!! That's putting it in perspective, lmao.The front structure looks and feels pretty packed in and stiff as-is. I was looking into the front bar just for show, and to be able to say I've got a complete "sports tuned suspension". A $120 part for fun ain't bad compared to a $2000 audio head unit or a $99 plastic badge.
Yeah, well...the part itself looks like about $12 worth of galvanized steel conduit from Home Depot and some brackets, throw in another $0.12 for the glossy red paint. Its all the machining to get the fit perfect that's jacking up the price. My shop's just wood and wiring or I'd hack it. It'd probably go way over $120 budget to have a local machine shop mill even one bracket out. Might as well just shaddup n' order the @#$%ing cheap Chinese-milled part. <sigh> Lead paint anybody?Amen to that!!! That's putting it in perspective, lmao.
