Bushings, depending on price, may come with the Swaybar

This is intended to be a plug a play deal

Just need 13 more folks to indicate a real interest

Once the above occurs I will start taking payments

Generally, increasing the rear bar will reduce understeer (or increase oversteer, however you want to look at it).


I'm in for one, maybe two.

I recently swapped from 13mm to 14.2mm bar on rear of W201. Difference is noticeable.

Would these bars interchange with 124s? If so, I'd be in.

Don’t know what other vehicles a W123 rear Swaybar would work in.

It is only being marketed for the W123

Just a heads up:

I should be getting the demo the first week or second week of January 2020.

I plan on taking a bunch of pictures, and doing the install, driving it around for my .02 cents.

Assuming no issues, I will start taking deposits here and on STD dot com towards the second half of January 2020.

The production run will be 25. Once they are gone, not sure I will be doing a second production run.

To reiterate my same responses to the numerous PMs and emails: This is a plug-and-play solution. NO fabrication or modifications necessary to your car.

Yes

I physically have one in hand right now

I am waiting on brackets and bushings because I am going to be selling these as a turnkey kit for the same price $225 plus shipping and PayPal fees.

I hope to have all parts in hand soon and installed and a test ride by the end of the month

So, yes , light at the end of the tunnel as the Swaybar is “done”

I will post some pictures this evening

Here are some snappies.

Overall, you're going from 13mm which provides just 17 ft. pounds of deflection to over 47 ft pounds. PLEASE get ready for a new post where I will be taking deposits and specifying terms and conditions, and I am only going to leave this open for four weeks for deposits. If less than 15 of the original 29-ish folks who said they will buy one do not follow-through, I am thinking I will need to abandon the project.

The brackets I originally received are a little too big, so sourcing the right sized ones now.

Once I bolt this in, and verify it fits like a glove (which it does -- just need different brackets), then I will be taking deposts.

Remember, you're going from 13mm (original) to 15.87mm which is a hair bigger than the upgraded flavor which was found in fleet vehicles back in the day.

The upgraded, modified, i.e., .87mm larger than the thicker sway bar, comes powder coated in a pretty damm close to MB chassis black which was tough to accomplish.

As pictured, the 13mm is a little "thicker" because of crud and the slight angle the calipers are sitting. The new one is a little thicker than 15.87mm because of the powder coating and the angle of the calipers.

DO NOT make the mistake I did and remove the bubble wrap protective wrap during your install since you will scratch up the brand new sway bar.

Interested in buying one as well. Curious to hear how they feel when you have yours installed.

Bushings should be in hand next week. And yes, a full test drive before I start taking deposits.

Potentially interested in 2.
Want to hear about the difference in handling before I commit.
Thanks
