I didn't get to play with it yet - was hauling 6 tires and 4 wheels in the back after lunch and had a suspicion that I forgot to tighten the lugs on one of the rear wheels after the install. After the new tires are installed tonight, I'll play with car in the local twisty road.
i was thinking the same exact thing when i saw that pic, thats stupid when they could've made it exit out the back of the muffler and saved a huge power robbing bend, not that its gonna make THAT much of a difference, but still...
Just installed my rear sway last week. Really helps correct the understeer and is a must for auto-x!! I was expecting the drastic change in handling so it didnt shock me too much as it was the best suspension mod I did on my xA.
If you push your car hard and race it at auto-x's or time attacks you will notice an awsome improvement. Daily driving you won't notice. Best bang for the buck suspension component imo.

I helped my BF with installing the rear sway bar. We too jacked the back up and removed the wheels.
I've only driven about 50 miles since it was installed. It has seemed to help tighten up the back end for taking on/off ramps from the freeway.
do you think sway bars are a must?
I don't know if I think it is a must..... perhaps others will have a different opinion. I've owned other 4 cyclinder cars and never had it on them.. so I didn't know any different. I just took the advice of some of the folks on here and installed it.
Of course some people say the average daily driver, such as myself, won't notice a difference if it's installed.
