    Hi everyone,
    I have a 2011 4.6L Tundra and I wanna upgrade my front sway bar.
    From what I heard. Sequoia sway bar is more heavy duty. Is it true? Will it fit?
    If you have any suggestion or experience, pls drop a line.
    Thx.

    Mine was a straight swap. The TRD rear sway bar helps a great deal as well. Super simple, easier than changing the oil, less messy too.

    Are you happy with the swap?
    I was thinking either the TRD or Hellwig sway bar for the rear.
    But how about the front?

    Oh, totally happy. Flattens out the corners nicely. I will say that I didn't notice as much change as I did with the rear sway bar, but I had the rear one on first, it made the greatest difference. I have a standard cab truck, with it being nearly the lightest variation, it probably makes the most tangible difference.

    I would just go TRD...I've read some great things on them, and will more than likely add it to my mod list.

    So you have the TRD rear sway bar and stock front sway bar?

    I installed the TRD rear sway bar first, then I read that the Sequoia stock front sway bar was stiffer than the Tundra stock sway bar and was a direct swap. I then installed that.

    I saw a stock Tundra front sway bar on Denver Craig's. Is that yours? Hardly ever see those on there. Actually never. Don't believe in coincidence. You buy your Sequoia bar new or pull off?

    Not mine, my plan is to recycle it with some other steel I've collected. I bought the Sequoia bar new, I want to say it was around $150.

    Maybe someone is parting out or did the swap. See a lot of chrome bumpers on there too.

    Way too many wheels with Duelers. Stock exhaust too. Might as well scrap the exhaust or just give it away.

    What yr of the Sequoia sway bar will fit my 2011 tundra 4.6L, SR5 extend cap?
    Did you use the tundra sway bar link or the Sequoia sway bar link.

    I have an '11 as well, so I searched for an '11 sway bar. I went to a dealer site like Sparks Toyota and did the drill down search for OEM parts for the same year Sequoia as my Tundra. I ordered the sway bar only and reused my Tundra links.
