The ends are T shaped. The vertical part is 1/4" and the horizontal laid over the top is 1/8". The center is solid 7/8" (22mm) 4130 rod.

Was asking what diameter, didn't realise you had already responded in a separate post. Any plans to produce a batch for sale? And do you think you would have to reinforce the sway bar mounting points for this? I know some 4Gs have had to reinforce theirs to accommodate for the greater forces with a larger rear bar.

I haven't had any problems with the current 22mm bar so I don't think these will rip anything.

I might do some kind of swaybar kit in the future. But it would be a different design that uses pre-made splined torsion bars.

Got the anti-roll bars power coated and installed. Here is the finished product:







Going with black for as many parts as I can to keep the stealth look.

I also replaced the brake master cylinder as it had given up last time I drove it.

Run_Away will become famous soon enough

Prelude of the Month
Sweet! I'm very jealous.
Looks like you got the sills too, going to delete that extra clasp/pin thing thing?
I was thinking of leaving mine in when I convert. Those are the only parts I'm missing.

Love the look of the powder coated pieces. I have been looking for a local powder coater, there are exactly none. I might just have to build a small powder coat shop so I can do it...so torn...

Yeah I'm taking those out as well. I've got some JDM replica door sills to install and they wont work with the USDM sills.

There must be some place? Any place that builds things out of metal will be getting stuff powder coated now and then, you could try asking a place like that.

Local guy closed down a couple years ago, no biz...next closest is 50-60 miles away...am asking but it just might be cheaper and easier to build myself a small setup...do it for myself, maybe help a few others then sell the entire thing...those are my thoughts...
