    Last week XRAY released their new option front sway bars for the RX8 platform. This week they have released the option rear sway bars to accompany them! Like the fronts, these are manufactured from special spring steel material, and black in color. The sway bar is mounted to the bulkheads from outside for quick and easy changes and adjustment. The roll bar turns in ball-bearings for maximum precision and freedom of movement. Sway bar height is adjustable via a single screw. The thickness of each sway bar is laser-engraved for easy identification.
