Worth the cost is relative, and here is how I would put it.

-Added balance to the Car
-Reduced understeer
-Better force to the tires cross sectional tire area, aka rubber touching the road
-Weight savings
-Better steering input for driver enjoyment

The sways themselves are not very difficult to install, its a 2 hour install at our facility for example.

The best method is to un-install the passenger side wheel on the front of the car, disconnect and remove both end links, then disconnect both mounting points on the bar, and then snake the bar out the passenger side, you will need the car in the air a fair amount for this. The new front bar slides in place in moments, connect end links and done. In the rear its even easier, no need to undo the wheels just unbolt the factory rear bar, and bolt in the new pfadt sport bar, and set the setting of your choice.

If you were to have any questions, I have given my contact info to MANY members here and have helped them trouble shoot install questions, one of the many services we help to provide our clients with. We also have a great price and free shipping, on the sport sways.

Good luck

Regards
Brandon
