I have a 2017 TRD Pro. I read an earlier post (from 2015) that the Sequoia front sway bar greatly improves the handling of a Tundra. Is that still true for the 2017 models? Is that a worthwhile swap? Will dealers install them or do they consider that a warranty issue?

just get it. Unless your a hardcore off roader you will love the stability the TRD sway bar gives.

I also saw all the recommendations and decided to buy and install it, wasn't disappointed in the least and actually thought it was better than advertised.

Just installed my TRD RSB after 5yrs of owning my used 2007 CM 4x4....Wow!! so stupid not to have bought this sooner...$200 well worth it. Yes, it's easy to install. If you need an extra hand, I just used bungee cords to hold up the bar when installing the U brackets...made it super easy.

Enjoy your Tundra...dudes.

I'm not completely useless. I can always be used as a bad example.

Just installed mine. Did you guys find it weird that it does not call for a washer on the nut side where it attached to the end links? Haven't looked into swapping out the front yet.

No. I didn't find it weird.

I've done the front sway bar with the TRD. Be very aware on my word here: it really tightens and stiffens up the front. If you're currently uber happy with the fronts compliance over small bumps then the TRD front swayer may not be for you.

I saw that it is listed on one of the Toyota sites. Does it make the ride rougher and tighten the steering a lot?

In one word? Yes.

I see that some members rotated the brackets 90 degrees to raise the bar up so that it doesn't sit so low. Is there any after effects or differences after doing it?

The rotated brackets are actually a kit sold by tundra performance/SOS for lowered trucks. If you look closely at pictures you will see the leaf springs flipped/under axle and the links are shorter.

Did this on the weekend and I am impressed. The truck actually goes around corners flat!
Only downside is I'm going to go through more tires and fuel because I'm having so much fun!
