So I installed Some Turner Sway bars............ And i love em!

Just as the title reads i installed some sways.

I took a trip to Turner the other day (1hr from me) and while i was there getting a tour of the place (very impressive) I decided to take home some sway bars.

Let me tell you they are great. Easy install much much better handling.

the only negative is they weigh a few pounds more than the stocks, the front is 16lbs, and rear 8lbs. (only applies to weight weenies)

other wise great mod and not to hard to install.

Below i Share with you my experience:

Mmmm Pretty


old shitty one



looks better the more its on the car!


looks good


wow the shocks and sways match.... too bad know one knows about it!


and thats what it looks like installed


oh noes one on the rear tooo?











So far one of the better mods yet!

Do buy them if you get the chance super good and come with all u need to install

Awesome! I heard that the Turner sway bars are just H&R sway bars with a new color/name. Which holes did you put them in?

Nice work. Glad you like them. Are you aware that the swaybar bushings are self lubricating? They are the same as the H+R and have a teflon weave in them that keeps them from squeeking. I guess with all that grease on them they should be really quiet now.
