This is the 3rd year of production and if something this simple did any good I'm sure Toyota would have put it on the car. The seats I realize are too expensive an item to be replaced with comfortable ones.
From what I surmise from the installation pictures you are removing a steel brace which seems to have bends to create strength that was installed by Toyota and replacing it with a solid heavy powder coated steel brace. I would almost guess that the stiffening brace supplied by Toyota was doing it's job just as well with half the weight.
