I got that **@@&XX, BTR39, Whiteline swaybar, off of my Gen3 Camry today, and re-installed the stock bar. :laugh:
Darious, I still love my little Emerald, V-6 LE, and it's not really at the end of it's life. It's never been crashed, it has only a tiny amount of rust peeking out in 2 places. It just had a timing belt, waterpump, idler pully, and tensioner last fall. It has a leather interior in excellent condition, a 2001 JBL/Toyota sound system upgrade. It has also had a full alignment done in the last year, and all the struts, steering, sway bar, and all suspension components are solid as as a rock. Everything (except the power antenna), works. It just smokes a little on a hot start-up.
It's going because, I can't get a shop in town to do the work I want done on the car, to keep it to my standards. They won't take my money, so I've moved on to the flatform that has for a long time tickled my imagination. A Solara, with a 5spd manual transmission, and the 1MZ-FE, V-6. (Gave-up on finding a Sedan in Gen3 or 4, with a 5spd.)
My Gen3 will probably go on driving for quite awhile yet, for somebody else.
The only sad thing to me, is I know they will probably not put a dime into it in work or money, before they send it to the crusher.:crying:
Edit: For anybody that wonders as I did whether stuff has to be unbolted to get these bars in or out... I found that one of the most challenging things in the removal was to safely support the car, while leaving all of the back end clear for manouvering space. (this is a big long twisty piece of hardware) You need to leave the cars suspension hanging free, and also support the car properly/safely, "in front of the rear suspension". You need to be able to wind this thing through points that interfere with jack-stands at the rear most part of the sub frame rails, and also through the center line of the "K" member. It's an interesting exercise in feeding and jigging, but it can be done without un-bolting other stuff. The stock bar is much more forgiving, as even I could move it around and bend it around things with minimal effort.:wink:
Originally, on the install for my Gen3, I gave-up and handed it to a shop... paying dearly to have it put in.:frown:
