    Went ahead and replaced the OEM front sway bar with the TRD one. It does make a considerable difference in terms of the handling and steering, more precise. Definitely cured the softness in the front going over bumps. I had hesitated due to people saying they had problems with the skid plate removal and reinstallation, but found that very easy to do once I understood how the plate hangs from the frame- there are 2 hooks that go in the oval slots in the frame- then slide the skid plate to the passenger side and to the rear- no problems! What to do with the OEM sway bar- is there any demand for them?

    How would you describe the incremental improvement from adding the FSB after the RSB (assumed by looking at the mods in your signature)?

    it is a big difference in the front, and one that is more noticeable than the RSB, since the front stiffens the handling that you feel every time you drive it and steer. The rear sway bar is a big improvement but mostly noticeable when cornering

    I had a lot of problems with creaking when I removed the skid plate to install the front sway bar and after reinstalling the skid plate. After the creaking sounds were driving me nuts when I was turning, I followed the advice on these forums and added some rubber and vinyl washers to the bolts on the skid plate which made the sounds go away. I did notice a slight improvement with the front sway bar although I was probably more into the cool factor in seeing the red sway bar behind the front tires now. :)

    Damn, you had a full skid plate on yours? My 2020 DC SR5 didn't come with one. I have an RCI now, as of yesterday. Now just waiting for my DE skid to arrive.
