    Y'all better just hope that you don't have any issues with your control arm bolts, or this super easy install will turn into a mega gigantic pain in your dick reaallllll fast.

    I got my tracking too, arrives today. LOL.

    I haven't had those out, so this may turn into a pain in the dick. Though maybe multi-stage PB Blaster will help, and at least it's a 13 so it's not horribly corroded yet (except the front subframe, ugh).

    What happened with mine was, one came out fantastically easily like it should. But on the interior of the LCA is a welded nut that the bolt threads into; on my driver side, that nut broke loose and the bolt couldn't be backed out. the LCA had to be cut open, nut welded, then LCA patched. It was an ordeal.

    When installing this bar can you just jack the car up and remove the LCA bolts or does this need to be done on ramps or drive on lift to keep the suspension under load?

    Got mine today. This thing is super light, welds look solid, powder coating is decent, plus it has a purple TB logo on it. Who doesn't love purple logos? More info to come later once it's on the car.

    Just get it on jackstands, no load necessary. The CS bar is slotted so the bolts only have to be backed out an inch or so in order to slip it into place; looks like TB uses a full cup design so I guess the bolts will have to be fully removed.

    Installed the TB traction bar Saturday morning. So I have had a couple days driving with it installed. This is on a stock suspension. I honestly felt a difference as soon as I started the car. It seems to have quieted down the motor mounts. The car feels tighter. It seems to have eliminated most of the torque steer and it feels to have a much better launch. I feel that this product delivers and for the price I am very happy. Thanks again for the opportunity to purchase the traction bar in the group buy.

    I just had the front and rear bars and noticed an immediate effect, which I think I understand and can explain. As y'all know, when you do aftermarket motor mounts you get increased NVH. The amount depends on the design, as I have tried a couple of different ones. Well, when I started my Speed I noticed a decrease in NVH at idle. When putting it under load, the stability increase was notable, just a perception on my part of "stiffness" in the stability sort of way. I am very pleasantly pleased with the addition of these bars. Thanks for making an excellent product, well made and made in the USA! Blessings in Christ Jesus!
