    Found a treasure today!

    Well i drove out to vancouver, WA today to get my bumper painted, and while the bumper was off the car some guy came up to me and at first thought it was a subaru, well anyways he realized it was a toyota corolla and asked me if i was interested in any parts because a ladys car he was working on had some parts she didnt want, i asked what he had and he said some suspension (s tech, and kyb struts) and a TRD strut bar, i asked him how much and he said how much is it worth, well i wasent gonna lie so i told him about 200 and he said i can take it for $50... so i.. bought it :D
    Anyways he trying to get rid of some kyb struts and s tech springs, he said he might have a TRD exhaust and if he has any other TRD parts he will let me know. If anyone is interested let me know.

    Id suggest removing the VVT-i cover. Remove the valve cover + intake manifold. Give it a nice polish reinstall and call it a day.

    Now that you have a trd strut bar, what did you do with your 8 dollar one you had before? You said it made a difference...

    Strut bars don't actually make such a huge difference. Sway bars do. A generic strut bar is good enough already.

    That's what I heard, but any little help is better than none, IMO. And I got my eye on Hotchkis sway bars, I heard that those make the biggest difference. :D

    I'm not sure if Hotchkis fixed the rubbing problem with their corolla sways. I would rather go with Whitelines. Whitelines are solid core bars compared to Hotchkis hallow ones.

    Technically no. Several years are interchangeable so they do fit. Look under AE models.
