  3. Really peeved off! GPM sway bar upgrade..

    I love the UDR, but some things on it are terribly frustrating such as the stock sway bar system. The 2mm rod is way too soft and twists too easily providing minimal torque resistance up front and...

    Hey guys, would it be possible to somehow water proof or pre treat the bearings?

    Then again, simply running it on 4S has made a...
