Thanks again scoutismo. Placed my order and should arrive by this weekend. Looking forward to installing it. Any words from the wise regarding installation? Or was it just straight forward? By the way he had the best price I could find!

Okay sounds good! How different was the handling in your experience after installation?
Now I just have to find mudflaps that will fit with my strafe kit.

The body roll is decreased and the oversteer was increased. Its compliments the rear sway very nicely.

On the install just make sure you loosen the allen set screws prior. You'll have to do some wiggling around to seat everything. Watch over tightening! These are only to 14 ft. Lbs on the torque wrench.

f0rz4m0t0rsp0rtf4n, instead of multiple new posts in a short amount of time, how about learning to use the edit button?

Nice! Okay will be careful on the tightening. The sport has rear 19mm sways right ? so this should be really nice as I like to really feel those turns.

Thanks. I look forward to my driving impressions. Seems like a very inexpensive way to tweak the handling. Thanks for the feedback.
