    I am not sure at this point. There have been a few failures and I am looking into improving the design.
    Custom Mirage products: Cruise control kit, Glove box light, MAF sensor housing, Rear sway bar, Upper grill block

    Current project: DIY Nitrous oxide setup for ~$100

    Good news. I just sent new drawings off to the manufacturer to be quoted. The goal of these new revisions are to increase the life of the sway bar as there have been a few failures. I'm hoping to have a quote back this week and then place the order for more bars soon after.

    I never realized how flimsy the trailing axles are in these cars. I have one on the floor from a wreck and was moving it around the other day. It wobbled around like spaghetti. It's slightly more rigid while bolted in the car but still....

    I don't want to go back through 15 pages of thread so I may be asking a question that's been asked ans answered already, Have you considered finding a sway bar that you can adapt to the Mirage and just need to fab up mounting brackets for it?
    This is from a cobalt or cavalier Attachment 15644
    Looks like the bar just clamps to the trailing axle at two points and at a simple mount at the shock bolt at the ends Attachment 15645

    And then you can buy a Mirage to put it on!

    I'll likely want two as having very different handling between my '14 and '17 won't fly.
