    So after some long searches I've decided to make my own sway bar end links and installation hardware kit for my Trd sway bar. The best price ive found for both kits was 220$+ tax. Im kinda cheap and love to make my own parts.

    I know the links are 14'' centre to centre and I've already got the poly bushings.

    The only other info I'm missing is:

    -the length of the bolts and spacers
    - the dimensions for the u bolts and saddle brackets.

    Can anyone help me out ? If this works out I'll post a diy thread.

    I'm taking this information straight from the installation information that came with my rear sway bar:

    Upper End Link Bolts = M14 x 1.5 x 120
    Upper End Link Frame Spacers = no specs given but I measured mine and they look to be 1" long
    U Bolts and Brackets = not specified on the installation sheet

    Hope this helps some....

    Just remembered that someone else on the forum went through this recently. You may want to do a search for rear sway bar and see what comes up.

    Thanks !!
    Im assuming the bolts that go between the end link and sway bar are M14x1.5 as well??

    That kinda suck for me because the poly bushings I picked up for a M10 bolt. Ugh I'll have to find new ones... or just open up the poly bushings for a M14 bolt

    I measured my Upper End Link Frame Spacers and they were 1 1/2". I lost one and am trying to get a replacement but cannot find them anywhere including Lowes and Home Depot. Any ideas?

    I would probably get a brass pipe nipple (Ebay has them) similar to this one of the proper diameter:

    Get one long enough and then cut the threaded portion off.

    I see others have provided some information. Attached is a copy of the Toyota instructions - it might help with perspective...
