Had someone ask to see the sway bar installed but on the Maverick there is not much to see because of location of the bar. With something like a Tundra the bar is way out behind the rear suspension and visible from the rear, but with Maverick it is ahead of the rear suspension such that not much of the bar is visible after installation except the bar ends.

Red Arrows point to small stock rear sway bar.

Man that thing really is tucked up in there. How difficult is the install for the rear sway bar? Any plans to upgrade the front?

No plans to do the front, our best bang for the buck avenue to more sporty balanace is doing just the rear. These pics make it look hard to get in there, but actually plenty of room to slide it across the space and I have done the install and removal in under 15 minutes.

Wow. I was no expecting that low of a number. Fair enough on the front bar.

Any idea of a ballpark for the GWR lowering spring release?

Awesome. Thanks for the update. Looking forward to getting those and the sway on.

If the Maverick is lowered or lifted the control of front Camber is limited unless an upgrade is made to add more range of adjustment. We found that with the lift springs installed we had 1 degree of POSITIVE camber. Positive front camber means it handles like crap, the front end washes out if you push it all in the turns. These bolts with a little cam lobe install easily and allowed us to go from positive degree of camber to beyond -1.5 camber at the front. I was tempted to take all that negative camber for best handling, but given the strut design and weight of this AWD little truck we compromised with just about -1.2 camber, which will handle massively better than positive degree of camber without making any threat of adverse tire wear issues.

Have you tried towing a car with it yet?

I've been looking at the Ridgeline for a new DD and occasional "200 miles to the track" towing vehicle, and then I saw you had experience with both!
