JZZ project Update: Roll roll roll your body FFFFUUUUUUU

Well its summer time up here and I can’t exactly say its in full swing cause well the weather has kinda sucked nuts thus far. We get one awesome 80* day and then the next 3 days either rain or are like 40*. Anyway I never do much work on my car during the summer as I like to spend my money enjoying life and doing outdoorsy things. That doesn’t mean my mind stops on the build, been figuring out tons of suspension stuff. Really focused on sway bars.

Titan sway bars: adjustable BUT in the front you have to cut an inch off adjustable end areas or it will tear the ab sensor off. The titan bars are 8-27% stiffer than TRD 498lb bar up front and 18% softer than the TRD 367lb on light, 6% stiffer than the TRD 458lbs and 35% stiffer than the TRD 458lb out back. It boils down to being an awesome adjustable unit for sc300 drives cause that rear can go from almost stock to stiff as all hell. It also will hit the oil pan on SC400. Titan posts a warning on their webstie telling how the sway can make the car oversteer on full hard

Whiteline: Didn’t hear much bad or good from these guys. Not adjustable, 30.4mm front 22mm rear, no real info on exact increase over stock. Lots of people liked their front sway bar over ome other brands. A popular mix match was whiteline front with tanabe rear. dirt cheap too

Tanabe: Another dirt cheap line out there. Tons of dudes rocking these and saying great things but you need to buy bushings cause they only ship with rubber. These are 30.4mm front and 22mm rears again. Tanabe however is a chrome alloy tubing and claim about 20lbs lighter than stock on the set.

Daizen: These things are monsters. Also one of the heavier aftermarket one but like super over kill. Fronts are 35MM and the rear is a 29mm. The rear is 3 way adjustable and I have read in a few places daizen claims on full hard a 97% stiffer bar than stock. 97% blows my mind.

Largus: Couldn’t find much on these dudes sadly. Never heard of them before you brought them up actually. Kinda like K&M missle, seems their stuff is all over but you can’t buy it. I couldn’t find actual specs on the JZZ bars but I did find a few post on random forums about making sure they were super secure cause they have a tendancy to rip their mounts off or break end links so they have to be pretty serious.

I think I’m going to save and spend a little extra on the Daizens. They seem like the Titan bars just they are direct bolt on and have no ABS problem. FML @ the $500 price tag.

  1. Largus is either out of business now or they stopped making a lot of bars.

    They made huge bars for the S-chassis, and were really light, but they were also the priciest option for the S-chassis at the time that they were available new still.

    • ST sway seemed cheaply made compared to the companies i referenced. I hadn’t heard any reviews on them either so I didn’t consider them.

  3. i really need to start researching sways. drove a car with the daizens. liked the feeling. kept pretty neutral, and flat through transitions.

    • LOL i did this so others wouldn’t have to research as much. The Daizens really seem like the way to go since Largus I believe is out of business. The other sway either have issues or lack something but would be good for someone on a tight budget
