Traded my 2Xr Stage 2 cam and rocker assy for a Addco rear sway bar. Took a little while to get it ready for install since it did not come with the brackets for the upper bushings, so I had to find a set of Energy Suspension ones.

Got it all put together:


"Old" sway bar:


Difference in size ( I know there are other pics of this on here too):


Difference in upper bushing size:


Addco bolted in and GTG:


Was a little tricky getting everything lined up and bolted on, but it was pretty much the same issue when I replaced the bushings on the "old" bar over the summer. Now I am just waiting to dry off before I go on a little "test drive" to see how it handles now.

Just for those of you who will point it out, no I did not install the front bar (it is sitting in the garage though) since I am running a rear sway bar from an '80s Camaro that measures in at an inch in diameter, so hopefully upgrading the rear bar will make the Celipra a little more stable.

so your running a 80's camaro rear sway in the front of your car? am i reading that right? im going through the same thing right now actually. i have an old set of addcos on my car and the bushings/endlinks were shot so im putting in all new energy suspension ones. the front will require a little modification to the bushing bracket, but it looks like the rear bolt in with no issue like i assumed.

Had to run the Camaro rear sway bar on the front to clear the oil pan when swapping an M engine into a Celica.

Of the Camaro bar? Just imagine the stock bar with a wide u-bend shape in it right in front of the oil pan....

This more than likely not an upgrade for a Supra, it is just a necessity when swapping larger engines into a Celica (RA6X). IIRC, the Supra front sway bar is really close to an inch in diameter, but since I do not have a stock Supra bar around here, I cannot verify that.

It was one of the guys on celica-gts.com that swapped a 7MGTE into his Celica and did quite a but of digging to find a swaybar that would work without having to get a custom one made. If not, the stock Celica or Supra front sway bar would go right through where the oil pan is.

Which is quite an understandable reason for such research. Ingenuity is the best kind of skill to have (when it works :p).
It was one of the main things that helped me back when a 5M first got swapped into the Celipra. Wiring was the worst part since there was no one with knowledge of swapping a 5M into a Celica.
