    It's possible we could do something like that. However designing a sway bar is not child's play. You need to choose the alloy of steel, and if its a high alloy you have to stress relieve it after welding or you have a weak spot. You also need a welder and a way to bend solid steel bar. It's not exactly easy. IMO the benefits of doing a group buy or having a batch made by a company (or individual) who knows what they are doing is worth it. Plus you get the discount for having a batch made. Your average welder doesn't know how to do that let alone have the equipment to do it.

    The best would be if someone were to draft this using CAD software, that way we could all just take that design to a local welder and get this done on our own dime. The DIY intake folks here put together a 3D printed MAF housing, I think we could do something similar with this. How awesome would it be for the Mirage aftermarket to strive for a degree of "open source" accessibility?
    That was a brilliant idea ! The shipping cost would be more than the part it self, for me.
    Some day maybe it look like this, if my son get what he want :-)

    4,000 pesos, so that's around 3,000 baht.

    You don't live in Thailand? If not, how about shipping cost? 3000thb is about $84

    Progress makes nice looking stuff. Their Honda Fit rear sway bar looks similar to our setup.

    I would be in for an American made product that is at least as effective as the Ultra Racing design.
