It makes a HUGE difference. I drove around for a week with the new swaybars and no subframe (the stock one doesn't fit over the ALKs without spacers) and there was a lot of flex.

My first flex test was driving over a speed bump at an angle, and it seems to kinda rock over it instead of the chassis flexing and absorbing some of the bump.

I can't really tell if it makes any more noise while driving because I changed so much in the front suspension at the same time.

The frame is very well made, and there were no problems with the installation. My only complaint is that it took about 11 weeks for me to get it instead of the 5 weeks advertised on his website.

At this point my love for this car is getting me through these hardships, haha. I have been holding off on purchasing a Cobb AP and a couple of other things because I need to make sure it's running solid before making adjustments.

Sanded, sanded, wet sanded, and then buffed my 2003 yellow gunk filmed headlights back to brand new. Also at Mach V Motorsports as we speak, getting my car pro-tuned.

"The code I have is P0456 : EVAP System Leak Detected - Very Small Leak."

Last time they replaced the EVAP canister, so I can only imagine now they are going to take a closer look at the solenoids and hose.

Just talked to Carmax... apparently I have cracked tank plugs. They will about a week to fix it because to replace those plugs they will need to remove the fuel tank.

So it looks like I may show up to Thirsty Thursday in a rental Honda Accord... (I'll park next to the Volvo, haha).

It takes a week to pull the tank? Or they just want to keep the car til they get the part.

I believe they need a week to order the parts and do the work. (Also, I am starting to realize that Carmax needs a week to do anything.)
