    I'm planning on putting the TRD rear sway bar on my 2010 prius after multiple commenters have described it the "best bang for your buck" to improve handling.

    However, multiple Toyota parts websites have told me it doesn't fit on the 2010, saying it is only in spec for the 2012-2015.

    As I understand the body of the 2010 to be relatively identical to the 2012, I'm assuming the website is just being overly specific and I can still go ahead with this. But I thought I'd check with folks here first.

    Thanks!

    I have not been down there in a while, does it even have a rear sway bar? What about bushing?

    Well, according to this thread: TRD Plus Rear Sway Bar | PriusChat he installed the same part number on his 2011 that I have on my 2015. Toyotapartsdeal list it for 2010 to 2015. So I'd say yes.

    Yes you can I just did the install on my 2010 .. make sure you buy a set of end links .. I used ones off a 02 Acura CL or 00 Honda Accord it’s the same part and fit like a charm. Lifetime warranty from Autozone too

    Could you elaborate on this? Do they not come as part of the kit for the bar? If its something separate I need to get, do you have a part number?

    Thanks.

    I bought mine used so no end links came with it but yes you can buy them separately

    End link from Toyota/trd is PTR11-47012

    The part number from the Honda end links I used that works is duralast 18296 that’s either the left or right side but you can call and get the other number as I forgot what it was, sorry.
