Michael101,
I see what you mean. Would there be any problem with using an outside unused hole
in the shock tower? The vertical tierod would then be at an angle. Does that matter?

C-lyon,

Actually, I think it maybe better since you are using the sway bar at more of the actual length like it was designed. It other words as short as it was I would think that it would not react nearly the same as it would in it's original application.

I hope this helps, Mike

I dont know why the T1R is so expensive, i bought mine NIB from therchshack for 185. They had a sale going for that kit for awhile and i guess since no one else was buying they stopped the sale.

Ya I know. The LHS that I work for sells them for $224.99. I was talking about dealer cost is around $180 for them.

So the softest setting using the outside hole would be softer than the softest setting using the inner hole.
When I used it with the original PB and long arms I only had to use the soft setting.
Thanks.

Does anyone know if the FT parts are clear anodized, or just plain aluminum?

C-lyon,

Yes, it is all a matter of leverage! The longer the sway bar is the more leverage the opposing force will have.

Hey Randy,

I think they are hardened or clear coated. They dont look like natural aluminum. They looks a little darker than just natural stuff.
