    not much on cross posters.. But I know most of you dont venture out to XRU.. SO.........

    Well let me tell you, I love these things!! However I had to adjust to them a little bit.

    Im currently running QA-1 adjustable shocks, Sittin sic mono leaf and upgraded coils, and now the sittin sic sways..

    On my first test, I dove into a corner way to hard and pushed into on coming traffic [​IMG].. However It was a corner that said 15 mph and I was doing about 50-ish... [​IMG].. Some of the things I learned was on throttle in corner truck was perfect. Off throttle in hard turn it was pushing, no throttle thru corners it was fine.. however just a FYI truck response very well to throttle thru the corner and exit corner WOT!!! this is a awesome upgrade!!!!! (I also heard RR's were faster than BSP so I'm converting mod's to RR's maybe I'll get faster LOL)

    Here's some pictures and other info:
    Here they are and the stock front..

    Hey, while yall are checking this...

    Do these sway bars fit prerunners. I don't believe they do, cuase like, how do they mount to the rear axle? Since the prerunners don't have a stock sway bar.

    Anyways, yeah, just let me know. :D

    Thanks.

    Ask visa or my wife. They both constantly remind me how much I've got left to spend.
    Hey ntinhri, what model taco you driving? I'm on the xru list to get these and just wanted to know if you have and 05+ model and what "adjusting" you had to do to get them to work.

    I'd like to make sure because Shane with sittin sic said they would. That is the reason that I signed up on the xru list.

    Thanks, I had asked if the endlinks came with the kit and they said to use the OEM ones but taco's don't have sways and was wondering about that.

    Thanks again for the info, too bad I really would love to have a set because I've heard bad things about the hellwigs which are the only ones for tacos.

    I have a taco that I want to make into a large xrunner and was looking for sways but the hellwigs are the only ones I've found for the 09 taco's. The hellwigs are a POS from what most people say, inconsistant bends, small tube diameter and bad finish on them. I'd rather wait, save my $ and keep looking than install a crap piece of gear.

    1- balboas a douch and much slower than me.. (ppsst NST and apr pumpkin)

    2- I have a 05 xrunner with everything offered in the aftermarket except the girlish nozzz....

    3- sways keep my truck flat.. with QA-1's they are awesome! corner entry is where you have to adjust your line. exit is flat out and hold on.. WOW with the NST overdrive pulley, APR 2.7 pulley on my TRD s/c im at full boost asap, and my tq will rip second gear from a roll...

    4- Ill just sit here and wait on balboas smart as comments.

    This is what I'm about and it kills me that APR doesn't make a T stat or X-1 for the 09 4.0. Also I can't find an x- brace or sways for my taco that are worth the cash. I'm saving the $$$ for a TRD s/c since urd doesn't make a s/c kit since it needs the x-1 and as I said ARP doesn't make one.:mad:

    Gadget at URD said we're about 60-90 days away from ARP releasing there 09 4.0 x-1 and it will be worth the price. That is why I'm saving for the s/c and then upgrade to the x-1.

    Yea forgot your the orginal pioneer..... However I have yet to see a dyno, video of you racen, or anything that proves you use your truck.. (and taking pictures of your truck in front of yout customers houses dont count)..

    Talk to me about Flow.... Im listening..

    Give APR a chance.. Im sure they want to sell x-1's to the 09 crowd.... And yes I love the x-1..
