Do you notice a difference? Know people in your hood to assist you and keep an eye on it for you.

I haven't had a chance to take it for a drive yet, I still need to torque the bolts down.

I drove it home from the office - I did notice a nice difference in the corners and going into the driveway. Didn't rock as much. Real decision on it will be wind. If it helps with wind, it was worth every cent.

It is going to storm all the way from Mobile, Al to New Orleans this afternoon - so we will see how much better the Starship Enterprise (our nickname for the Solera) does with it's new sway bar. Stay tuned!

Good luck. We're going up to S.D. and N.D. next week, always windy on the plains this time of year.

How about in the fall? We're be in SD in mid/late September. By the way, have you had yours on the road since the swaybar install?

Ed

I'll be back in school driving buses in Sept. part time retirement income. I just got a torque wrench today to torque everything down. So plan to take it out this week end and drive around a bit, then the big trip next week.

About half way to NOLA - changed drivers - yes, this sway bar was a good mod! Overall safer feeling driving it. Got in the back on the bed when DH took over - still bouncy, but felt more "controlled". Yep, worth the expense IMHO.

Great to hear Debbie, I just finished torqueing the hardware down on mine, planning to take it for a drive in the morning. Then the big trip next week.

A good day for a test drive with the new sway bar. Nice and windy caught a couple of good wind gust. Felt it a little but didn't seem as bad as it use to be with the old sway bar. So I'd say it's a keeper.
