    ...thanks, AZ....based on what you just said and a lot of other research I'm going to install the sway bar.

    FYI: Toyota discontinued the TRDPro suspension (Bilstein version) since switching to Fox and I was told the new TRDPro suspension (Fox version) will not work on my 13 even though the old versions (Bilsteins) will. Go Figure. So, I just found a set of takes offs and will be getting them and the sway bar installed by Camelback Toyota in Phoenix...

    Not sure if you have a specific service advisor that you use. I bought my Tundra at Camelback Yoyota and have all my service done there as well. Joe Toro is my service advisor and is good to work with if you are looking to find one.

    ...AZ, so I live in Orange County, CA. I've never been to Camelback Toyota. The reason I'm going to drive out there and have them do this install is because I cannot locate any dealers in OC who are willing to do it or who are even competent enough to do it...and technically, its not allowed by Toyota for them to do it since the TRDPro suspension kit was not made for the 13s - even though they fit perfectly with no mods - but through the use of these forums I got turned on to Murph (Service Manger) at Camelback and he has no problem doing it for me and they seem to know exactly what they are doing without hesitation - unlike most Toyota dealerships/service depts. in Orange County.

    Well, glad they are helping you out. They are one of the largest Toyota Dealerships in the Phoenix area. I've been using them since I bought my truck in July 2017 and no complaints so far. Sucks that no one is closer for you though. Are you set on using the dealer?....I'm sure just about any off-road shop would tackle it.

    ...I am 100% dealer-only when it come to servicing my Toyota vehicles, especially with this type of work. The service departments hate me because I am up there ass on double checking their work...so even though Toyota says this Pro kit is not suppose to be on this 13 Tundra I'll feel better knowing a dealership installed them - JUST INCASE - there is a warranty issue.

    Ok guys, my rear sway bar will apparently be here tomorrow. I'm a mod newb and certainly no mechanic, by any stretch of the imagination. What tools do I need to do the install?

    not the most complex mod that you will do. I just put mine on within the last month. Helpers are a plus. I used a 25 inch 1/2 inch breaker bar for the 19mm trailer hitch mount bolt most forward. I really liked the you tube video that used the "anti seize". the you tube vids will show that the lower link to RSB uses only 1 washer, follow the instructions that show 2 washers on the lower link to RSB. If solo you can tie the RSB to the rear axle with para-cord once all of the links and RSB is loosely bolted together. once all is bolted together loosely then 22mm socket for the upper links, 19 mm socket for the lower links, axle brackets and the saddles for the axle. be careful of the lines/wires around the axles.
    after finished, test, It will be the most thrilling ride on this truck that you will ever imagine. I have 9 curves on a Louisiana highway to the interstate, used to be 35-45 mph, now 55 mph with no sweat, careful though until you get used to the "sportscar handling". Again careful installation and driving you will enjoy the difference.

    I had my laptop next to my truck and this makes installing the bar a breeze.

    for those of you who don't know this and watch the video----be aware Anti Seize gets on EVERYTHING and NEVER GOES AWAY. it will outlast this planet. a giant asteroid will destroy earth one day and some alien civilization will find silver goo floating around in space.

    and they too will get it all over the place.

    I bought the Hellwig rear sway bar. Pretty much the same, just doesn't say "TRD", and it's grey, not red. Don't get me wrong, I like all the TRD accessories, just don't have the TRD "theme" on my truck (except for the TRD air filter and air flow accelerator, which are under the hood :)).

    Definitely rides better, especially in high-speed tight cornering. I can see though that it might be a hindrance with "extreme" off-roading.

    Best result from the purchase...I finally had a reason to get a torque wrench! :rofl:

    I put the TRD Rear Sway Bar on my ruck and noticed a difference for sure. have had no issues with it. I occasionally like to hit the mud and do some donuts....no issues yet. lol

    The YouTube vid I watched the guy used an anti seize lube other than the small packet that is included with the kit. Was just curious.

    There are different kind of lubes for different materials. The lube they supply should be the one spec out by the bushing company and hence always use it. You can buy your own but make sure to contact the bushing company for the proper lube spec.

    Is everyone using the anti-seize when installing? Do you really need it if the installation doesn’t call for it?

    I think its good to use. I hate creaks and locked up bolts. anti seize seems to help with both.

    Good point- when I install I’ll take the extra time to use it so I don’t regret it later.

    Ok, what are we talking here, anti seize (which typical goes on threads) or lube (in this case bushing lube)? They are two completely different application, lol.

    I agree, this mod is extremely easy. You don't need to jack the truck up either. I had mine on in 30 minutes. It took longer setting the torque wrench specs and getting/putting tools away than actual install.
