Replaced my intermediate exhaust pipe. The old one broke at the flange. Wow what a pain in the ass to cut the bolts off.

Tighten my throttle cable with zip ties and removed the sway bar. So far I like it but we will see...

What's the point in removing the sway bar?

Took mine off a month ago and will never put it back on. The ride is smoother, speed bumps don't make your pregnant wife give birth, your fillings stay in your teeth and there is more flex to the front end. Took put the links and all. Took maybe 15 minutes total, just be sure you have the sway bar held help when taking out the last few bolts. It is heavy and will smash you in your face if your not careful.

----------

you just can't drive like Mario around corners, but I don't anyways
