The bars are going to be $130 Canadian because of the small order.

Please pm with shipping information so I can give you a final quote unless you are going to pick them up.

Thanks

Can anyone make these cheaper then $120? Not trying to be a jerk but $120 seems a bit much for 4 hiems, 4 spacers and 2 aluminum pipes. I am sure someone here could make them cheeper.

Are the bolts 10 mm or 12 mm? What kind/size of joints are you using?

The price is $130 Canadian. They will improve the handling/sway when cornering hard. They are made from aluminum. If you really want to improve handling/sway intall better springs and struts. I have the springs for sale in the group buy section for $250 a set of 4.

Let me know

Joe

I've noticed that most springs lower the car, something i didn't want to doo.
Do your springs lower the car?

Doo the toe bars act the same way a sway bar would ? Is it better ?

I installed new shocks and put rear springs from a metro sedan.

Works ok but i carry a fully loaded car all the time.. Tool boxes parts etc..

Thanks Joe

Yes the springs lower the car but are over twice as stiff as stock springs. How this will react in a fully loaded car is yet to be tested. On the race track under load, wheels don't rub even in hard cornering.

The toe bars do not prevent swaying - they do not work like sway bars. All they do is prevent the alignment from changing under hard cornering. The stock toe bars flex.

You may want to consider changing your thread topic to that price then....your currently advertising them as $120.

I wore out a set of rear tires, winter, square treds , within 25,000 klm's, I've never seen tires wear out like this, uneven spots. I figure its the load i carry.

Do you have a picture of the toe bars installed on the car.
It would help me visulize the concept. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Thanks

Murphy
