    Interesting. I followed the instructions to a T that came with the bar. So far, I haven't had any issue, hasn't come loose or anything.

    The instructions are a bit confusing, since the first step for the OEM hitch is back a page from where it looks like the install instructions start. I can't imagine a 1/16" washer makes much difference. To be honest, I considered adding the washer anyway since the hole in the hitch bracket is a little oversize compared to the spacer that is being torqued down, so there isn't much surface area that the spacer is contacting. I installed as instructed and so far haven't had any issues.

    To the OP, I installed both the front and rear sway bar, plus the TRD skid plate in only a couple hours. Was very easy. The handling difference was very noticeable, much flatter through the corners. Since I installed them both I'm not sure which made the most difference.

    I ordered mine from https://onlineparts.toyotasouthatlanta.com when they were doing 10% off + free shipping for Memorial day. I have no idea how often Toyota parts does sales, maybe the 10% off sale was to drum up business right now? They're still doing free shipping through today, so if you don't want to wait, maybe you want to buy from them. The sway bars were wrapped with bubble wrap and put in a box, they arrived in perfect condition.

    The red banner across the top explains the deal. You have to use the coupon code FAMILY during checkout. The cart will show shipping charges but they are removed on the payment page.

    I have the rear on my 15 CM and it helps immensely with body roll. I was wondering when install new rear 1.5 shackles will of affect the swaybar in any way?
