    i can't imagine in a 7000 lb suv you'll see any gains. i'd say put the money elsewhere.

    I have put Hotchkis sway bars on my Jeeps and Suburbans, they make a huge difference, and when used on lowered cars and trucks they even work better, the ride will be more harsh, but the handling makes you forget that pretty quick.

    Sway bars.... or even more properly "anti-sway bars" will help reduce body roll and in turn (pardon the pun) give better cornering.

    as hcvone mentioned they will work most effectively on lowered cars because of the lowered center of gravity.

    yeah, i know all that, but 'lowered cars' yes, 'lowered escalades', are they needed?? are you going to push it so hard you'd 'use' the extra handeling??

    I drive my trucks like I drive my Z06 or M5, I am usually happy to get 10,000 miles from brake pads and tires, I still have the stock brake pads, and the Bridgestone Revo's has 15k on them and they look great. Even on non lowered trucks the sway bars will make a difference
