What made you choose this particular product?
It's a cleaner, more sporty look under the hood. It has better turn in and stability.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
I had a hotchkis sway bar kit on my frs and I loved it. I intend on doing the same with this car
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Very easy to install, with a 12 mil socket and wrench.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
This is a very worth while purchase unless you plan to go with a twinscrew supercharger then you will have fitment issues. Same with the Crawford power block. Basically if you plan to raise the intake manifold I don't recommend this.
