stock swaybar question

Ok so i got this sway bar from a guy and he said it was from a 98 just like mine and i notice that the ends are different.... is it from a newer model or older, 4 runner, or from a different truck... looks the same as the one i got on mine except for the ends........ take a look.

this is the one from my truck

and this is the one i got from the guy

see how the ends are different........whats up with that????? is it going to change anything in how it handles ???

The one that was given to you is exactly like mine. The design must have slightly changed sometime after 98. Weird. I thought they were identical from 95 to 04.

The "new" one you got is just like mine, 01.

If it fits on yours, I don't think you'lll notice anything different about the ride. IIRC, the new one has a little ball-joint deal at the top, whereas your older one has a straight-through stud with just a rubber bushing. Perhaps those wore out more quickly so they redesigned.

I hope that is more helpful than "just remove it."
