    Im the black sheep that likes the cushy 3rd world suspension, its like a Thai Cadillac, its so soft. On good roads its like driving a cloud, it handles dips and speed bumps nicely, and when Im at a red light and I got my gangsta rap blaring, I can bounce my car with just my weight. No fancy hydraulics needed.

    That was impressive. Hence the wizard title. Too bad your not a Dungeons & Dragons dork. Id get you on an online team to cast level 50 fireball spells with your mighty staff of arcane knowledge. Itd even out my paladin hobgoblin character.

    Good points.

    When I bought my Daox anti-sway bar, I not only was curious to see how it would work but wanted to support Daox and his efforts. I was one of his early buyers during his initial discount, though that discount didn't sway my decision. I did a fairly in-depth post covering the installation and provided some feedback. Like early forum members, I see my decision to buy and install the bar as an early adopter to help others decide if it'll serve their purposes, not solely because I want to take curves at a faster speed.

    I like using the sway bar, but I'm not convinced it is necessary for the operation of my Mirage. If I had to, I'd take it off and put it up for sale tomorrow.


    The anti-sway bar is not lowering springs, that's for sure.

    I don't understand - what's your point?

    Besides cutting up for laughs, not much except you were espousing the virtues of a OEM stock Mirage but then Fummy remembered you did have a sway bar, so you doubled down. It was comical. Nothing but love from my end, hence the smiley face. Plus that guy's expression natches perfectly with "c'mon son".

    But I'm not. I'm hoping to understand the rationale of those that have lowered theirs.
