    I used a rustoleum etching primer on it with some autozone color matched silver paint. Just rattle cans.

    Some of you probably noticed, but I sold out of the first batch of rear sway bars! A big thanks to all who purchased them. I'm happy that you guys are enjoying them so much.

    With the first batch successful, I started looking into making another batch. However, I did read any and all feedback I could get on the bars. Some people had some issues with clearance to the brake line brackets. Here is the problem I'm describing:





    So, I took that into account with the next batch and revised the design so that will no longer be a problem. These are the new ends. They have a big relief cut in them so that clearance should never be a problem moving forward.

    ...and, that change was actually made months ago. I sent out new drawings to my vendor and had another batch made up. I just received the new bars this past week. I must say they look great.

    Here is a poor image of the new sway bar end.

    Of course, this means that the sway bars are back in stock, and already ready to ship out!

    Rear Sway Bar - $174.99 shipped



    Also, for those of you who have purchased a rear sway bar from me. A short review on amazon would really be appreciated. It gives other buyers confidence they aren't buying junk.
