In Topic: 510 Front Sump anti-sway bar

If folks think $265 is too much, I'm not sure what they would think of the Speedway set-up. The Speedway 1 1/4" bar and arms is over $300 and that is w/o any hardware or mounts. 

I don't know if 265 plus shipping is a good or bad deal, that's why I'm shopping around. when I'm frantically throwing money at my car it's nice to be able to save here and there. I was hoping there was a junkyard option that I didn't know about or a competitor that offered a similar bar for a lesser price. I ended up buying a used front sump futofab bar from a member on this forum, I'll post photos of fitment once it arrives.

I used a Speedway engineering sway bar on my son's 510 with KA swap.

1speedway.com, It took some fabrication but no welding.
Will try to dig up some pictures but don't count on it. Saw this type of straight hollow bar on a 510 with an FJ20. Someone should know about it.
They make sway bars for race cars including NASCAR. Bars are hollow and thickness varies to change strength.

Thanks, I'll search for what you are talking about.

I think $265 is a very good price for a custom bar...

My Cressida is no where near as old as a dime, and I still had to pay more than that for a used aftermarket front bar.

 

And the speedway bar is a definite option, but probably more after you get done buying all the parts.

Although, the ability to change roll stiffness once you fabricated everything is a BIG advantage for tuning if you ever track the car.

I buy a lot of suspension parts from Speedway.

Love cressidas, also have a MX32. See, I don't consider it a custom bar, they are made in batches and at that point become a production product. when I start looking at prices for other production bars I think that the 265 plus shipping looks high but I've never bought a aftermarket bar before. So I don't really know. I'll buy the bar if it works with a lowered vehicle, can't blame a guy for trying to find a better price or company producing them.
