Has anybody tried to put the rear sway bar from the X-runner on a Prerunner? I have an '06 Prerunner and with most all of my driving on the street with the occasional trip towing the boat I'd like to have the reduced body roll. My Dakota had one and towed a lot better then my mom's Dakota which didn't.

Thanks,
Shane

I am curious too. Whats the sway bar look like? If someone is in the Las Vegas area, I would like to see if it comes off and bolts right on. Thanks

yea its all bolt on. Its on there with end links.
I would imagine they would work. I think all the frame rails are probably stamped then put together for each truck its going to be used on. So I would imagine they have all the same mounting bolt holes

If you want to move the truck's handling characteristics from moderate understeer to a more neutral setup, then add the rear sway. The back end may want to swing around more in inclement weather, and with more ground clearance, that's not the best thing to have. The front sway bar on the DC is huge, BTW.

The X-Runner has 18x8 rims, so there's more rubber on the pavement, along with a lower center of gravity.

Due to the ride height diff between the X-Runner and Pre-Runner, the end links may not be long enough for the Pre-Runner. I saw pics of someones ride, Pre-Runner (from a muffler install I think), that had an aftermarket rear sway bar on it. I think it was on Tundra Solutions...I will try to find it.

[EDIT] OK, never mind...it was a Tundra not a Tacoma.

front sway is 1.18" on the trucks..the XRunner rear sway is .98"
You where not saying to get XR 18's where you. Prerunner is 6bolt and XR is 5bolt

Thanks for the info. I could make longer end links without too much trouble. Would like to see a photo though. I find it hard to explain when I get caught under someones cars at the supermarket.......................

05XRunner,

Are the sway bar mount brackets welded or bolted to the rear end? My Prerunner does not have these. Don't know if I'd be comfertable welding something on to a complete and oil filled unit.
