    Who would be interested in an alternative rear sway bar option?

    As you may know, I've been looking into having some parts made for the Mirage. I have a few ideas, so I'm trying to weed out the good ones from the not so good ones.

    The biggest area people are interested in according to our poll on aftermarket parts is wheels, brakes and suspension parts. So, I've been looking into that area.

    Since body roll is a big complaint I've been looking at that. Obviously, a rear sway bar does worlds of good for this as many who have installed the Ultra Racing bar have noted after they've installed it. However, I'm wondering how many people haven't got the bar due to the price?

    So, my question is, would you be interested in a rear sway bar that costs less? What would be a price that you're willing to pay? I'll likely have to work with companies and I'd like a price target, and it has to be realistic.

    Feedback is much appreciated!

    It would be nice to be able to get the rear sway bar for under $100 US. It's not like it's a complicated machine or anything.

    I agree with $100 bucks. Even up to $150. They are not expensive to make and should not be as much as they are.

    It's my #1 most wanted mod. My own frugalness accounts for some of why I haven't bought one, but also that IMO the Ultra Racing one is way overpriced and the Canadian dollar is ****.

    $100USD seems reasonable (when our dollar picks back up a bit). It's not good at all that there is only one option right now.

    My rear sway bar is rusting. been on the car since the 2nd group buy. I would be down for a better quality/better color(LOL).

    More than anything I'd love to throw some cheaper coilovers on my mirage. I don't plan on track days until I have paid off more of my car!

    I'm interested, but how involved is it to install it? Would it affect the warranty at all?
