    Thanks for making this guide! I *finally* got around to installing my rear sway bar yesterday and I can tell a difference already! Installation was not difficult, though having a friend to help was useful. We briefly jacked up each side of the car to put the bolts in. I wondered why the bolt was no where close to going through until we realized it was the wrong hole, hah. Pro tip: there's another (kinda hidden) hole in the back of the spring base thing that is further away from the circle of holes. That's the one you want. My sway bar is one of the early versions with the brake line clip clearance issue, which I didn't realize until we were basically almost done so we had to take it all off and tighten everything again. It's all good now, and it's a nice thing to have!

    I am currently out of stock Benwerks. Hopefully I'll have new bars on order soon.

    Daox can you let me know when you have more bars, also I would image this would also work on a G4. I feel like this would really help my morning commute.

    I'm interesting in one also, for my 2018 G4. I'd rather wait for yours if possible, versus what other options I've seen out on the webs. My daily driver was a 2013 FIAT 500 Abarth, so any sort of handling prowess I can add to my G4....I'm all in!

    Alright guys, I just got the final quote back from the manufacturer this morning. And I just sent of the purchase order to them. So, we got the revision done to the sway bar and they are on order! Lead time is quoted as 6 weeks, but they've gotten them done faster in the past. Hopefully that'll happen again. I'll keep you updated as I get more information.

    Awesome! Thanks for the continued development on this. Can you share any details about the updated design? Are you taking pre-orders for anyone who wants to get in line now?

    The design changes included an alloy change on the tube, and a change to how they are welded to the end plates.

    If people would like to pre-order that would be fine by me!
