Rear anti sway bar

I will be using my prerunner for mostly street.
I am wondering if anyone uses a rear anti sway bar?
Helwig makes one and I have used them before on 2 other street trucks.
Comments?

It's on my mod list. The Hellwig is the only one I've found thus far.

I seams like the brackets that are attached to the rear differential would want to rotate under load. Is this a problem? Also, do the brake lines need to be bent (or raised) to accommodate the u bolts that wrap around the rear differential?

Thumbs up

I have the same one (Hellwig).

YES they make a difference. No good for off-road, but hard to believe how much better the truck handles on the road. Night and day.

Brake line has to be bent maybe 1/2" to keep good clearance with the brackets. Nothin controversial.

end link to frame bracket photo?

RossK35,

Do you have a photo of the bracket on the frame rail where the sway bar end links attach?

thanks,

sccaken


ps: I think ADDCO makes a 1" rear bar for the Tacoma.

YELLOW??? I like the yellow! I thought they only came in black or red, this yellow gets me excited! Thanks for posting the pic Hawaiian!

As for the results, although I can't speak for the Tacoma's I can vouch for the Hellwig on my Tundra, it was night and day! Really firmed up the rear and were able to take off/on ramps at better speeds, much more confident in corning situations too.

Looking to hear more results and possibly more pics!

Rob

Its been so long since I've driven without it installed I honestly don't remember what a truck feels like with out one, but its defiantly an improvement. I put it on shortly after I got the truck which was the end of 2006.

The yellow is the x-brace from an x-runner that I put on. The sway bar is on the axle in my picture.

The PN from Hellwig is 7670 I have not seen one offered by Addco so far.
Tell me more or pics would be real cool on the X brace!!
I like stiffining up the chassis.

Just got my Smittybilt ( N-Fab) bars and the super bull bar.
Plenty to do tomorrow.
