    Actually, most Brownbats own Camrys', Corollas', Accords', and Civics'.

    THAT is the right of passage

    **UPDATE** F/R Sways + Endlinks: Installed

    Install/Fixes

    August 22, 2013
    Installed front sways and endlinks

    August 25th, 2013
    Fixed left side endlink and made it more straight, by adding in more spacers

    September 5, 2013
    Fixed right side endlink

    September 9, 2013
    Installed RSB + endlink

    September 10, 2013
    Installed Rear Brace

    Issues:
    1. The reason why I had to re-do the front endlinks was because the car was NOT under load when Mark and I installed the front sway/endlinks. Reason why we could not put it on ramps was because the car is lowered with a lip and the jack that he had, did not go up high as the ramps.
      • Because of this, my bushings aren't in the greatest shape, but they'll live. When I fixed them, the car was under load and they look a lot better than before.
    2. I had no issues with the RSB and endlinks. I just had some minor things, but that was me, since this was my first time installing.
    3. The bolt on the control arm where the rear brace goes is extremely hard to take off, so I took my car to my friend's dad's shop and he took it out with an impact gun
    4. The reason why it took me so long, was the scarcity of tools. I had to rely on my friend for tools and work according to his schedule, but in the end he just gave them to me to borrow, and return them whenever I am done. Also, my days were utilized by other activities

    Feedback:
    I love them. I was taking turns at 50mph on a 25-35mph curve and it felt great! KB endlinks are nice, but I feel like it requires more work, in terms of dialing in and stuff.

    Oh well, KB is quality so that's all I care about.
