Default New Front and Rear Eiback Sway Bars Oddessey

Back in November, I found a pretty good deal for the Eiback Front and Rear Sway Bars at Ultrarev.com for $239.00 (part #2860.320)

Having an 07 Cruiser I also needed to get the rear installation kit
Part # (2860320HKR). (Brackets, bolts end-links) Ultrarev does not have.

I simply could not find one available. I made three purchases on -line only to be told "out of stock or discontinued) days later. THEIR ARE MANY SITES THAT ADVERTISE THEM BUT DONT SEEM TO HAVE THEM ONCE THE PURCHASE IS MADE.

I ended up buying the Mopar Stage 1 installation kit (Part # P4510839) from JEGS. It finally comes a couple of weeks ago I open it and one of the back ends of the bracket that holds the bushing is missing. Jegs tells me that I have to send the whole kit back to get the one bushing bracket .

Long story short , I find the bracket on Parts Geek for $6.39 and it came yesterday. If I had known the individual part numbers for the Mopar brackets, links and bolts to install the rear sway bar I could have saved a lot of money and aggravation.

NOTE: The Front and Rear Eiback sway bar kit (part #2860.320) came with the 25mm poly bushings and links for the front and the 22mm poly bushings for the rear.

For the Rear :YOU ONLY NEED TO GET THE LINKS, BUSHING BRACKETS AND BOLTS.

This morning my mechanic took about an hour and a half to install the front and back bars. $150.00. I was going to give a go on the install but for $150.00, I saved the neighbor's ears from a concert of profanity.

I'm looking forward to taking the car on a good ride to see if the new bars give the Cruiser a new feel.

FRONT SWAY BAR 25MM


REAR SWAY BAR 22MM

Don't be surprised if your new one gets rusty, too - when they flex the paint cracks off.
Biggest handling improvement I found was getting rid of the original Good-for-a-Year tires.
