    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

    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."
