If you do get front and rear sway bar kits, get the Hellwig kits. My rig is not for off road but those Hellwig kits make it corner like a freakin' race car.
I don’t really off-road much but obv can feel the roll getting off interstate. I know bridge expansions threw me around too.

Putting those bars on my rig, front and rear, made the most "seat of the pants improvement" that I have ever felt.

If you won’t offroad it, these will be a great upgrade for you. However if you ever found yourself offroading more often you could come up with a system to disconnect them if the aftermarket hasn’t already gotten that far yet.

So I'm not sure, but are you upset you lost the "floatiness" of it?
I'm not upset about losing the "floatiness" of it. I am impressed how nice the TRX rides without the bar, but I feel much better ( safer ) with the bar installed when I am in corners or towing my motorcycle trailer. It's not a big trailer, but there is a noticeable ( good ) difference with the bar installed and when the trailer is loaded with 2 full dressers. And like others have said... it wouldn't take but 10 minutes or so to remove it if you wanted to go out back and get a little crazy with it.

I put it on last week and made some final tweaks over the weekend.

I started in the middle holes, but moved to the firmest setting. I also had to remount the upper links with the correct sleeves because I didn’t have them when I installed it. They include two different ones and neither is right for the TRX. They give you one that is the correct I.D., but too short and the bushings get crushed when the bolt is tightened. They also give you one that’s the right length to prevent the bushing from collapsing, but it has the wrong I.D.

These are what I bought to solve that:


These are the bolts you also need to order:


Overall it’s been a worthy mod. Reduces the body roll, fixed the wayward, bouncy feel over railroad tracks, and even took care of some of the lean.
