Default Rear Sway bar install

Let me start of by saying anybody that tells you they did this mod in 15 or 30 mintues is full of SH3T. Never have I had the most ruffest time taking off a bolt and I used it all WD-40, and PB BUSTER ALL that crap.

Take a look at these photos I PB BUSTER the FU#K out of that bolt. and still nuthing.
In the long run what made it come off was Conan the barbaran strength.

First off let me let everybody know this mod is easy, but only if that dumass bolt would come off
when you first start out unscrewing the dam nut the back end starts to move (So you like yea!! I GOT THIS) But then you realized its just spinning it in place. What the Manuel doesn't fu#kin tell you is that you need a Allen wrench and you stick it inside the nut hole so to speak. then grip it with on hand hand while pulling it down with the other. This is what take amazing strength and about 10 minutes of turning since you dont have enough room to ractchet out the bolt you gotta go quater of a full rotation at a time.

Now on the upside putting it back on was easy as hell just taking it off was a nusance.
I just recleaned the treads and got a wire brush to remove most of the rust. I did the rear only for that day. I was too madd and pissed off to even try the fronts but I will leave that for another day.

pictures before were pics that i took struggling to that both these dam bolts off...

IMAG0282 by WIZARD1325, All the wet stuff is from the PB Buster crap I was spraying on the bolt I wiped down and clean same of course. certain time i squeezed the rubber boot and white stuff comes out lol no pun intended. but thats the grease in the joint leave that part alone lol just use the allen key and big long stiff allen key and some exetreme muscle.

First impressions of the rear installed..hmmm Woooww people believe the Hype thats written on this forum the car turns sooo much better improves understeering to miniumum and less body rolll I love it can't wait to do the front to get that extra 6% lol shoot I paid for it might as well even it out =0) till later thens byez

Lol. If you thought the back was hard. Wait until you do the front. You will have to really really maneuver it to get the old one out. And maybe a "gentle" lol nudge to get the new one in. But good luck. You can do it.

Haha, I know exactly what you went through with that nut. Mine was a 20min job, but the 2 other guys that also did the sways was hell. I think one guy even had to cut the nut off.

Well I let some PB Buster soak and sit on the front nuts before I finished so maybe just Fing maybe it wont be as hard as the backs...Cutting the bolts is not a option at alllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I compared it for you guys with an average proxy Card (on left) and a average credit card (on right)

The Lexus Smart Card is smaller then the average proxy card by 1mm on each end. It more slimmer as well
anyway I figured I post my pictures if you guys are interested in the product
