Others have reported great difficulty with installation of UUC sways. Please let us know what you encounter.
They say the sways do not fit properly.

The rear is a real ****** on the UUC bars. I fought mine, but finally got them in with the help of longer mounting bolts for the upper rear tab. I would suggest turner motorsports rear tab reinforcement at some point too. Those bars are amazing, but those tabs can and do break.

Go full stiff in the rear and medium up front for maximum fun

Okay so sway bars are easily the bet thing you can do with your life. fronts took 30 mins rears took awhile just because I have quad tips which made getting the bars in/out a nightmare. long story short I had to remove the exhaust hangers. A must for the UUC's is to get longer mounting bolts for the bushing and Smolck said. they make a night and day difference. Now just to finish the 5 speed swap. If I did not have quad exhaust it have taken me about 1.5 hours to do fronts and rears.
