I finished my new suspension on my TR8. All went very well, but I ran into two problems which probably cost me about three hours.

1. The first issue was that the poly bushings that came from TSI came with metal sleeves which did not fit the stock bolts. I solved this problem by reusing the old metal sleeves by burning off the old rubber bushings.
2. The second issue was trying to fit the uprated sway bar from TSI. I battled with that for a while before I remember Shawn's post. As a result, I went to the the hardware store and bought a cable pulley shown in the picture below.

Next step will be a front end alignment.

Special thanks to Shawn for taking the time to know that I'd battle with the sway bar.

Glad it went well for you, Larry. You're gonna notice quite an improvement in the driveability!
