    Thanks for the info! Like a candy store...if they are shorter it may not work with my Hotchkis RSB.

    PH-1 ?

    These bolts definitely won't lock anything extra.

    Would like to confirm, bolts will not fit the Hotchkis setup. Too short unfortunately.

    The bolt / nut conversion was quite popular from the Japanese forum(s) 2 years ago so I pulled the trigger and bought a set.

    Works like a charm!

    Hotchkis Sway bar set came in! @RightOnTime Did you guys get some more inventory? I'm really impressed how flat the rear feels now. Can't wait to push her some once the weather improves! I only installed the rear since it's super quick. They even have a grease zerk for the rear bushings. Also came with loctite. IMG_20190206_183307.jpg

    Speaking of the rear sway bars, did anyone run trd bar together with the Cusco rear sway bar? It looks to me there is enough clearance to run both for the ultimate entertainment.

    Wash and wax after all the rain. New tires... about to raise the front of the car .5” or so this weekend to accommodate snow chains on the way up to bear.

    The TRD sits in the same area of the torsion bar as the Hotchkis.. But maybe the Cusco would fit under one of those..

    Let me know what prices you get to install. I have a set which I have for sale but may keep if I don’t sell.

    I did mine myself. Definitely is difficult and time consuming. I did one seat per day. You will need hog rings and pliers. Good luck!

    Do you mean head rest? If so, that was the easiest. I just slipped the new ones on without taking the cloth off.

    yea head rest, asked cause when making calls to local shops they all asked if I needed the head rest done and one particular shop mentioned that just alone he charges $45 per head rest due it been difficult to install LOL

    Thanks for the info on that !!
