    I've read that the matrix trd rear sway bar is a direct bolt on. I'm wondering what other parts would possibly be a direct swap? Coilovers? Intakes? Etc.

    Aren't the yaris engine & prius engine similiar?

    I wish someone knew the answer to this. I have the TRD struts/springs in my '05 Prius and they have over 100K miles on them now and I want to replace them with another performance strut. Only KYB seems to make anything for these cars but KYB has a bad reputation and seem to be of poor quality with numerous complaints of failure within a short period of time. I would love some Koni's.

    I do have the Matrix rear bar and it was a direct bolt-in replacement that was much more stout than the stock bar.

    The SCCA Solo II FSP Prius used Celica and Matrix front struts and rear suspension.
