Heh..take a slim chance in asking..if anyone knows if these are available to our year cars..

If not some possibles ..custom, or for another year(if they are even Ava)
Idk? Would be hella nice on the suspension to have these
.especially for prevention of wear and great improvement on handling ..

(Crossing Fingers) I don't see any.. :/

Hotchkis sway bar set and TRD strut tower bar is what I have.

Good luck finding TRD; it's getting rarer by the day having been discontinued.
Tire Rack carries Hotchkis - that's where I got mine.
Watch for ground clearance and fitment - I managed to strip the threads on one of the mounting plates and needed Hotchkis to send me a replacement. Then I managed to shear off the dust cap on one of the grease fittings, scraping it in the process. :facepalm: Those fittings are standard 1/4x28 grease fittings. I have bought a replacement pack for $3 for 5.

I'm not aware of a afternarket LCA for us. I'd love to see a 6061/7075 aluminum unit.

Cusco makes some very nice strut bars (they even have a 3-point version IIRC) if you can't located a TRD one.

You'll need to look for one with the A101 or AE111 application.

It's way more rare but I'd hold off and look for the 3 point TRD one. Those are sexy.
I have never seen one before.
Good luck with that. Those were never sold in North America.

You'll have to hit up a JDM parts importer to find it.

You might luck out and find one on ebay from a Japanese seller. But be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for one.

Here you go, and yes, they are discontinued. What a shame. Here is Scott's car, hope he doesn't mind :)
Nope, I don't mind :). I was actually about to post a pic of it myself, haha.

They're really hard to find nowadays, but they do pop up for sale from time to time. Usually the paint starts flaking on them due to use over the years, but if you got it powder coated like I did with mine it will look brand new and last for a lot longer. If I come across another one I'll let you know :thumbsup:

In the meantime, here's a couple of close-ups:






Alternatively, you could use an OEM 2-point strut brace, like I used to have before I upgraded to the TRD brace. Can get them quite easily here in New Zealand if you're interested. Here's a pic:
