Not 100% positive if the TL RSB is solid... when I remove mine, I'll examine it but there won't be any way to tell...
Sure there's a way to tell.

I weighed my stock 16 mm rear sway bar and the 20 mm TL rear sway bar when I swapped it out. They're both solid. Here's how I'm sure:

For the 16 mm:

Measured mass 2.240 kg
1.36 m bar length without ends

Assume the bar is solid
ends: ~0.06 kg (based on volume estimate) each
bar: 1.36m*0.016^2*pi/4 *7850 kg/m^3 = 2.15 kg

Estimated mass if solid 2.15+0.12 = 2.27 kg

That's less than 2% off the measurement--it's solid.

The same math works for the 20 mm bar: 3.430 kg measured, 3.47 kg estimated, <1% error
