Welcome to the site!

I want a ruckus so bad! you guys get leather as an option and we dont!!!!

can't wait to see some pics.

also, if you're getting handling stuff done (strut brace) def invest in a sway bar dude. its like night and day!

thanks for the welcomes,

i like the look of no badges thats why the rukus badge is gone wish there wasnt a curve where the toyota badge is... i can find out how much they are at the dealership down the road if you guys like... the standard leather is ok but something i will be changing in the future... as for sway bars, most likely be going local with them will hopefully be in touch with whiteline australia see what they can get done otherwise i will be looking at the hotchkiss ones... ill give it a wash and get some photos done on the weekend...

Regards

Chris

Welcome Chris! Sounds like you already have plans for making some great mods to your Rukus. Post some pics when able. I agree with phobic, sway bars over the strut tower bar (unless you ordered the strut tower bar already :p). I installed the Hotchkis sways front and rear and the handling is greatly improved over stock. Ordered them from trdsparks (along with the strut tower bar, TRD springs, Borla dual exhaust). You will definitely need to get a front end alignment if you go with the Hotchkis. Regardless, I look forward to seeing some pics as your Rukus evolves. Best wishes mate!

yeah sways are next on the list, kind of hard over here as anything you do to the car voids warranty... so just need to way up if i just go all out in 1 area as in suspension and then not worry about warranty on it...
