you're right, i meant sway bar. i ask because i tried doing this about a month and a half ago and couldn't unbolt it because i didn't have an 17mm open socket wrench or a hex socket to keep the damn bolt in the middle from constantly spinning. i'm assuming you used these?
Honestly, the time it takes to drive and buy a cheap set of wrenches to use to hold spinning bolts is less time then you spend trying to get the strut out with the sway bar attached.

Tanabe springs installed this weekend. My first time working on my car (Thanks Jeff Tsai for DIY to give me the courage to do it!) Looks good to me. Thanks Josh @Meraki for the springs.

How do the cars ride after lowering? About the same as stock or much firmer?

Sorry, my web hosting was down for a while. I don't frequent this site as much as I used to, and I had no idea they were down until someone emailed me about it lol. All pictures and links fixed!

Yes... I believe AWD & RWD springs are the same. The only difference is front side
