    Off topic: HawaiiKid, how far "in miles and time" is it from Waikiki beach to Northshore? I'm getting married on that island next year. Also, what's the name of that famous blow hole cave thingy in Honolulu?

    Back to topic: How much bigger is the Hellwig compared to the stock sway bar?

    Any idea how the shop ended up getting those bolts out?

    Blow torch and drill is my guess.

    It really is a huge difference. If you could feel the difference in weight you would be even more impressed. Got it on Amazon, with free shipping

    From the far side of Waikiki all the way to Sunset Beach its about a 45 min-1 hour drive, probably 40 miles or so. A lot of it is on 2 lane "highway" with low speed limits. And the one you are talking about is probably Halona blow hole just north of Hanauma Bay. Not positive on the exact size difference, I know the Hellwigs are 1 and 5/16ths inches around.

    Drilled one completely out because the head snapped off, the other 2 they were able to pull somehow without messing up the threads (not positive how).

    Rears should be coming in today!

    So you can actually feel the difference with the front sway bar. I was thinking of just installing the one on the read since there wasn’t one on there from the factory. I have only 34,600 miles on my 2004 and would like to take some of the saw out of it when turning.

    That's what I was afraid of... Good thing they got it done without any problems. I bet that's quite a relief for you.
