    I unfortunately didn’t make an installation video. What made this the easiest was jacking the rear corners up one at a time to extend the spring and clear the perches for the back bolts.

    Got all four in, lifted the bar and suspended with lock nuts. Again, jacked up one corner at a time, so I could get the adjustable wrench to each bolt. Got them as tight as I could, repeated the other side, dropped the whole rear ended and went back under and cranked those suckers down until I couldn’t anymore.

    My wife took the first test drive, and was so so so giddy and told me “find out for yourself” when I asked if it was better.

    HOLY $?!@.

    I DIDNT EXPECT THIS.

    I love it. The car feels SO much more stable than it used to. Way more confident around corners. And trust me. I threw it into a few. And instead of rolling and feeling unstable, it just dug in and went where I told it to.

    Dudes. Get this bar. It’s like a whole new car.
    That's cool! It's amazing how something so simple can make such an improvement. Thanks for sharing your experience!

    I know right?

    I'm used to it now, but I remember when I first put it on and took it for a spin I was pretty floored.

    NO MORE FEELING LIKE YOURE GOING TO FALL OVER IN A TURN!

    YOU CAN ACTUALLY GO THE SUGGESTED SPEEDS ON ON/OFF RAMPS!

    I mean, it's still not a mini cooper or anything, but it's a HUGE improvement for how simple it is to install.
