    Any idea on installed cost front and or rear? Seems like most folks go with the rear. Thanks

    I purchased the rear one for $238 off of ebay.
    That was about the cheapest I could find... shipping was free also. I don't have the front sway bar and from what I understand it's nowhere near as easy as installing the rear one.

    I have the front and rear took maybe 1 hr to do the front little harder than the rear but not bad.......I ain't no master mechanic but pretty handy.......well worth it for both

    Rear is extremely easy. Never done the front but would think it’s easy as well. Instead of paying someone to do it. I bought what tools I didn’t own and did it myself. Saved money that away. Check out sparksparts.com I think I got mine for 215. Also Toyota of cool springs a vendor on here has some really great prices

    Rear is very easy, and youtube videos out there will show you how. 30-34 minutes tops if you follow the directions.
    Sparks Parts with the coupon code tundradude34 was $220 to my door. YMMV.

    Stock Tunras come with front sway bars. People add rear sway bar in addition to the front one. Sway bars improve handling on the road, but it may become a disadvantage when off-roading. Some off-road enthusiasts even take off the front sway bar to improve off road performance.

    Yes. Your Tundra comes from the factory with a front sway bar. One bar.

    The difference between stock sway bar and TRD is that the TRD is solid and stock is hollow

    TRD rear sway bar is rock solid. I was surprised how thick and heavy it is.

    Does anyone know who makes the rear sway bar brackets that mount the bar behind and above the differential instead of the standard below? Thanks

    I think you just turn the brackets 1/4 turn to the front.

    My buddy wants to put one on his with a 6” lift. This is what I got back from sparksparts. 700BF881-4836-4FE2-B9A5-6540078F0657.jpg

    Hi All!! first time posting. I'm planning on either upgrading or maybe just changing the bushing on the front bar. it's squeeking, and allows me the opportunity to do one of those things. Question is, do I need to put the truck up on stands? I have a 3+1 leveling kit and 35's, so I can slide under there already, but wasn't sure if there was a reason that it would need to be lifted up for suspension reasons.
    any info will help! thanks guys!

    No need to lift if you can get under it now.

    I added the rear sway bar and feel it's a must do. Much better handling after install. I'd recommend doing this mod unless you are going to be doing hardcore off-roading then it might get in the way.

    ...I'm considering a TRD AS bar for my 2013 Tundra TRD/RW CrewMax which will have also a TRDPro suspension kit installed at the same time. My truck in almost exclusively a street truck but I occasionally will do some light off-roading a few times year and might use 4X4 once or twice each year if that - Never any true 4X4ing or rock climbing. Seems like the AS bar will improve the road handling...thoughts?

    Definitely. I've got a 2017 CrewMax. I'm currently running both the TRD Pro Suspension and Rear Sway Bar. The Sway Bar tightened up the cornering and top heavy feeling of the truck. The Pro Suspension rides like a dream compared to the stock yellow Bilsteins. I have no regrets on either. You may want to look into a slightly used set of TRD Pro Shocks if you can find them. I picked mine up with about 30K miles on them for $850. Not sure I'd pay the retail of ~$2600 or so for them as when you're spending that much there is probably better options out there.
