As the title says,

What's the best source for Hotchkis Sways ?

Best price I have seen so far with shipping was right under $400 from Jegs.

Anyone got a better source ?

I've done the search, Jegs came out on top, just wondering if anyone else had a line on a better deal. Otherwise I'll order from Jegs.

Thanks,

Ron

22 for second day isn't bad either! Most places are around 50 bucks to ship ups ground

The TireRack is crazy fast in their shipping for great prices...

I wasn't able to find them for much less than about $400 anywhere when I was looking.

This was a great mod, I was very pleased when I installed mine.

Ight so are the Hotchkis sways worth the $$$ for street use with the stock alignment?? I just want to reduce the body roll without lowering my care [just like twitch]

I searched ~~> http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-cts-v-series-forum-2004/138032-should-i-feel-big-difference-hotchkis.html

Twitch said he couldn't feel the difference.. you guys debate alignment.. Then V10boost says Hotchkis bars and elibach springs are the $hit... :confused:

So are the sway bars worth the $$$???

I've been living with my new Hotchkis anti-sway bars for a week now. As stated before, in normal driving situations, I can't tell I have them. When I push the limits, I feel how flat the car feels on fast corners. I was more of a "drive fast in a straight line" kind of driver. I always felt alittle uneasy because of the body roll. I also never got my g-meter to go beyond .6 or .7. This week alone, its at .92 on the left and .89 on the right. When the weather gets warmer, and I have more grip, I'm aiming for a full G or more. My recent G pulls were also done with stabilatrac on. I can't wait to turn it off and try harder. :thumbsup:
