    Great set-up!

    Could you post a picture of how the end link interfaces with the frame?

    Thanks.

    It's the kit SOS Performance offers to those of us that lower the bed by hanging the springs under the axle.

    There is nothing wrong with your Tundra set up to be a "pavement princess" or set up as a "broke-back mountain truck"... who are we to judge anyway?

    TRD Dual Exhaust TRD Rear Sway Bar
    From what I test drove to what I ordered yes, the rear sway bar helps with cornering. Also, if you've ever needed to swerve lanes in a pickup at highway speeds (e.g. debris dropped on road) you'll appreciate less weeble-wobble.

    I'm in the middle of flat country. I don't believe there's anything within 200 miles where I'd need axles to articulate that much.

    Any thing special about how you installed your RSB? Just rotate?

    I am using special short end links to match up with the elevated mounting position.
    This is required when you hang the leaf springs under the axle.

    Would love to hear your thoughts on the new truck before and after the exhaust swap.

    I added one to mine, it was well worth the small price. Especially since i have a habitat on the back

    Does the sway bar make for a harder ride? more bouncy? It seams there would have to be give and take somewhere....

    The ride is smooth and there is no added bounce.

    That is the best setup as I was saying with the Hellwig, the TRD does not compare in my opinion.

    TRD Dual Exhaust TRD Rear Sway Bar
    I ordered mine with the TRD dual exhaust (after investigation into comparisons) however from what I test drove the stock single exhaust is okay, I just prefer something more pronounced yet not overtly loud. The TRD rear sway bar may not be as noticeable to the spectator however for the driver, it's a huge benefit on a road IMO.

    What’s a good deal for one these days? I’m thinking of picking one up.

    I really liked the way a TRD sport drive in the test drive, but wanted the 1794 creature comforts. I’m hoping this gives a lot of the feel the sport had.

    ~$200 is a good deal but I've seen them lower; shipping is what kills the deal.

    I have it on my 1794 and it was night and day difference. Even my wife noticed the reduced body roll.

    That’s about the best deal I’m seeing now just under 200 plus 25 shipping.

    The wife got me one for Christmas and I installed it last weekend. I was shocked on how much better of a ride it was on my twisty road. Very happy with it. I would say it feels a bit stiffer with a slight more hop over bumps in the back, but nothing worth complaining about. Wish I added it sooner.

    How's the installation on this? Looks like it might not be that bad. Is there any need for a lift to get under the truck, and what about impact ratchets? Thanks

    I was able to do it myself with a creeper/pad and tools but a lift of sorts would help. Its a tight fit in some areas, having long arms will help if you cant get it lifted. If you have a towing package you will likely need an impact to get the first few bolts off for the sway end links. This video lay everything out well:
