I'm here, keeping a watchful eye. Everyone needs to take a chill pill and wait for more people who have installed one of these sway bars on a new Yaris to tell us about it, like Violin.

Despite his prickly and infuriating manner, Yaris TTE WRC is trying to share his experience. But, I have to side with the others, he's quite wrong about most of this! Dude, I have trouble admitting when I am wrong... But when a bunch of people consider you a dumbass about one thing, there's a pretty good chance they are right

easy echo, you know better then to let another person piss you off, take your meds today???

You know, I can't really see clearly (from the photo), but if you've got a rear swaybar on your rally Echo and you also have rubbish tires on it, it wouldn't come as *any* surprise that you felt that the swaybar was useless.

The tire would let go before the car builds any sort of useful side Gs that bring the suspension (and the rollbar) into play.

Of course, I could be wrong, as I often am, you might really have some decent tires on that rally Echo, and your rear swaybar might really not work.

If swaybars don't work, no one would use it on any car at all. Your opinion that it didn't work on the Echo holds no water, because we're using it on a Yaris.

Let the guy who's installed it tell us if it works.

P.S: For a guy whose rattle-can-sprayed his steelies white and his spoiler red, $150 *is* a lot of money to be throwing away. :P

I happen to appreciate Yaris TTE JWRC comments and everyone else’s too. In the end we will have two opinions two view points and you have to make your educated decision on the results you think you will have or what you want to accomplish. Aside of the adrenalin going here, (which is 50% of why I have been viewing it) I seem to think this thread has not gone to shit yet. Now either I have calmed things down or stirred it up more... take your pick now... now without further ado "LETS GET IT ON"... ding,ding,ding!! lol

No, I'm not attacking you for that. You have every right and reason to do whatever you see fit to your car. I am putting into context for the others who do not see it why you might actually regard a $152 sway bar a large sum of money that should not be wasted.

i like your wheels.. the 1st time i saw it i thought that was great.. you have to appreciate other people's ideas sometime or another.. after all thats why 1/2 of us do the same thing. either you like it or dont. dont mean you have to do it. just appreciate what other people have done.. its their taste. but i do think that was a cool looking idea..

Dude, for everyone's sake, calm down, and take the time to read and understand what I was writing about. Nobody's calling you a dumbass, but you gotta understand that by the way you are responding in such an aggressive manner to anything anyone says about you, you are only making a fool of yourself.

People joke, people are sarcastic, satirical, and sometimes on a forum it's hard to tell if they are being truly mean to you or not. But you can't take everything personally.

For example, this discussion. Here is your original response to these sway bars:

A rear sway bar on a torsion beam rear suspension is really not doing anything, because the torsion beam rear suspension is already bulided in one piece, what the torsion beam rear suspension need is a rear sturt bar that goes on top of both rear shocks in the back cabin to really help to reduce body roll, just like what the front sturt bar does and goes under the hood.

Which is wrong, as largeorangefont then replied to you in a most polite and helpful manner. Your response to that was that people only feel a difference with sway bars because it's a psychological response to spending lots of money on it... And it all went downhill from there. You stuck to your guns (which is admirable, in a way), but since nobody agreed with you, they made fun of you.

It's like, if you are in school and the teacher tells everyone the earth is round, but one kid keeps on repeating, it's wrong, the earth is flat. Completely wrong and completely annoying, right?

Anyway, re-read cleong's recent reply, ignore the thing about the spraypaint, I'm pretty sure this might explain why you didn't feel much with your old sway bar.

Keep an open mind, be open to other peoples' opinions, don't get angry when someone criticizes what you've done or what you think. That's pretty much the guidelines to a good and helpful forum experience, heck, to a good and helpful life experience

Yaris TTE JWRC: Maybe you could shed some light on the setup you had on your Echo, from there we might learn more about why the swaybar did not work for you in your case.

Eg. Shocks, springs, tires, suspension alightment/adjustment?
