Hmmm, I wonder how much improvement I will feel.. The symptons you are explaining are still a bit present on my setup. I have TRD Sway bars / tein s-tech / Koni yellows

I have full TRD suspension...and honestly...when I took my rear strut bar out, I felt no difference. If you have sways already, don't waste your money. I may be putting my TRD rear strut up for sale soon... :)

I have one and i love it! I have trd sways, tein springs, kyb agx's, and an rmm front strut bar....I took the rear brace off when i was going to part out the celi and i could feel a big difference. One of the best mods i've done to the car :)

Hey it works well! They're off for winter storage. If I was shorter I'd use it as a clothes rack too.

I have one, what do you want to see?
Is yours the TRD? I've seen some pics of it on a bench, but not installed. The 3 pt brace I've seen has 2-bolt mounts on the strut towers (facing the front of the car) and a 2 bolt attachment between the struts on the on the lower lip of the bulkhead (also facing the front of the car). How easy is it to remove if you need the space between the seats? How much trim trimming did you have to do?

Thanks in advance!!

It's kind of a pain to put in and also a pain to take out, I did a shitty job trimming cause I was clueless and it started to rain on me. You wouldn't take it out and put it back in without a bit of fussing and certainly not want to do so on a regular basis. Someone did make one that went in and out easily and was a 3 point bar, forget the name though.

Do you have any pictures? I'd really like to see it.... I found the TRD unit on intensepower.com for $142US not bad I think..

There is a thread around here that helps you figure out a template. You can dress it up with the right grooved or channeled trim around the cutout. I, of course, haven't put the trim in yet even though I purchased it long ago... wonder where it is...

But the TRD bar gives you a solid sled of a body and it's all suspension from there. It's a really nice upgrade!

P.S. - Bitter cleaned a metric ton of crap out of his hatch in order to take that pic!
