I ordered the F sport sway bar kit from my local lexus dealer. I was wondering if anyone has put the front one on as well. I know the rear is going to be better but I've read some of the discussions on here and I think I agree with the front one being overkill. Has anyone put it on and actually put it to use at a track or street use as well? I'm definetly putting the rear one on just not sure about the front. Any help?

The fronts are the same size as the ISF, the rears will be the only beneficial ones for us...

There are a few here that have put on the rears and have felt a slight difference in handling.

I agree, and I have the rear bar. Adding the rear bar also stiffens up the ride a wee bit.

Thanks guys I wasn't too sure about the front. I'll just sell it. The rear sway bar goes on tomorrow. I can't wait.

i believe the F-SPORT parts are for the 250 and 350 is... the parts do nothing for our cars.. at least thats what my service manager said..

Yea it makes a difference. A little less body roll and a little more bite in the coners in my opinion.

I was disappointed to learn that they swaybar kit available can not be ordered by individual part. To get the rear bar and the poly bushings for the front and rear, I have to buy the front bar too that I don't want/need. Bummer. I don't imagine that there is much of a market for just the front bar with no bushings....

Oh well.

The PN for the rear bar only is PTR02-53080. I think UCrazyKid knows this, but he wants the poly bushings for the front bar in addition.

Thanks for the part number. I guess i had to be reminded again that most dealers don't know anything... LOL

I didn't think of pairing my old rear with the front and looking for a buyer like that. Interesting.
