Default Ultra Racing Sway Bar

Anyone give these a shot yet? I want to stiffen up the ride / handling a bit on the car. Found these on ebay and they seem to have the rear sways as well as strut bars and chassis braces.


28mm thick and includes polyurethane bushings

Would you recommend them? Do they reuse the oem end links? I cant seem to find any pics of these sway bars anywhere online

Hmm curious about these as well and the front strut bar. I do like that they use steel for their strut bars and braces.

It stiffens the front up nicely, to me the way it feels as the car should come like this from the factory. I have the TRD STB on my other GS, the Ultra is not quite as strong as the TRD but good enough for daily use.. I personally like it, it tightens the front but retains factory feel..

I would suggest moving over to OEM sport sways from the sport model LS430. Slightly thicker than stock, but quality is there.
