    Default IPD Sway bars

    Hello folks,

    I had the IPD sway bars installed a few weeks ago at the start of an epic drive with the 90. I had them put in down in Portland at the IPD shop (nice people).

    So far I am very happy with them, it tightened the car right up. Now it feels like the back end actually wants to go to the same place as the front end. I flogged the 90 through the high desert and down the 101 (within reason, it's still a top heavy overweight SUV) and I much prefer the characteristics of the car with the new sway bars.

    Regards.

    Planning to install the IPD sway bars myself (2003 xc70), does not look like a hardcore job, EXCEPT the engine support to take down the sub-frame (where the front sway bar is mounted to).
    Anyone did that procedure as a garage-job, without an engine support or crane/lift?

    Any answer is appreciated...
