It's through Paypal and you will have to pay immediately, the shipping charge will be at a later time. The payment will be refunded if it doesn't reach 10 buyers. However since we are at 6 already I will probably go through with the buy even if we are a few short, I'll just cover the cost of making the extra ones and then sell them off after the buy.

So what did you change between the bars? Did you find a flaw or just find a better/more inexpensive way to make them?

The 2 changes are:
New mounting brackets aren't included
Arm design on the bar is simplified

The only reason I made new mounting brackets before is because I couldn't find a universal 22mm bushing that would fit onto the stock brackets. SuperPro makes one but they are pricy and need to be special ordered from Australia (6 weeks travel time minimum). I found some universal ones that ship prime so I can get them here in no time, they also come with a new metal strap and cost a little less than the SuperPro ones. So instead of new mounting brackets this bar will just come with some spacers to bring the stock brackets closer to the ground (so the bar clears the bottom of the trunk).

I'm building an NSX for someone and I checked out the aftermarket rear sway bar he already has on it.... WOW the arms on that thing are dinky compared to my old design. So the previous design is massively overbuilt if anything. The arms on this new one won't be as beefy and will require less welding and materials.

22mm Rear Sway Bar Group-Buy Update

Email current buyers should have received:

The 22mm Rear Sway Bar (Variant 2) group-buy has hit the 10 buyer minimum.
Parts and materials will be ordered starting next week. I expect it will take a few weeks before everything arrives and I can begin work.
As things progress I will post updates to the group-buy thread on the Prelude3g.com forum as well as update the Facebook posts.
My current intention is to have the sway bars ready to ship around the end of April or early May.



Shipping invoices will go out once the bulk of the work is done and the sway bars have been dropped off at the heat treat place.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR PAYPAL SHIPPING ADDRESS IS UP TO DATE!

Once I receive your shipping payment I will be shipping your sway bar as soon as it is ready to go, and it will be going to that address unless I hear otherwise.
