for all those buying the addco rear sway bar, i got shelly and dan ( the engineer)at addco to look at angels setup that he posted on the forums. dan said that angels setup was good and thanks for showing it to them. the instructions you get will look different, so follow angels.

Bruce, how different is Addco's instructions? I am just curious because I am considering getting the same rear sway bar and modifying them a bit. I noticed that Mensagero had to utilize a longer stud and washers to install the lower bracket. I am not too comfortable going this route, so if there are any other ideas; I would appreciate any information that can be shared.

Also, I noticed in Mensagero's setup that the upper mounts do not attach directly to the frame but utilizes 2 brackets to mount the bar. I would prefer the bar to be mounted onto the frame if possible. Just some ideas I am tossing around, maybe I should just order the bar already and see what ideas I can come up with. :D

Here's a pic of the K-Mac rear sway bar on Andrew's RAV. We will be selling these from the RAV4OZ.com online shop. It's an 18mm (0.7") sway bar that runs along the width of the car high so no interference from the exhaust. We will also be selling the uprated K-Mac 27mm front sway bar.

okay,
i'm the guinea pig for the sway bar. shelly told me to try a diff setup and if any parts failed, she would replace them for me. derek, i was supposed to go visit them last year because they needed a rav for the front sway bar fitting, could have gotten a free bar, but i never went. derek check your pm.
