Hi,

That sway bar is cool. Yes, sway bars definitely make a difference. In this case it's adding torsional stiffness to the bar, resulting in more transfer of weight to the rear under cornering. Yes, the car will corner more flatly, will it corner faster? Maybe... depending on tyre. If you transfer too much weight to the rear...i.e. ultra stiff sway bar... you'll be slippen and slidden in the rear all over the place.

Thanks

I'm not trying to call you out or anything, but you info was just wrong. You provide insightful information in other areas but in this case it is incorrect. I just don't like seeing misinformation spread. Nothing personal.

I don't have a bar yet, but will be ordering one very soon. The Xa/Xb owners tell a very different story than you regarding the effectivness of the rear sway bars. It seems like the Scions have a suspension closer in design to ours than the older Echos. Mabye the echo bar wasn't designed as well or was less effective for whatever reason. I am confidant a rear sway bar will provide the best handling gain in the Yaris platform aside from tires.

by the way all the TRD parts for the Scion Xa , and Xb are also works for the echo, they all have the same chassis and engine, so im not sure if your info is right, and the Yaris is a totally different car from the Echo, Xa, and Xb, maybe you need to do more researches, i have been on the Siconlife forum for a long time, so dont get me wrog.

You must be the only person on earth that cannot feel the benefit of a rear sway bar upgrade on a FWD car.....course it could be because you painted your STEELIES WHITE!!!

Not that I even understand much of that, but if the Yaris is totally different than the Echo and the Xa/Xb, then why are you saying that the Yaris TRD rear swaybar won't work based on your experience with a rear swaybar on your old Echo, which by your own admission is a different car?
