Fellas,

Anyone know the torque setup on the Hotchkis sways? I did the rear bar this afternoon and will attack the front tomorrow eve. Nowhere in the instructions does it give a torque spec. I just tightened em as tight as I could get em.
Anyone?

I plan on installing these shortly as well, so add me to the curious list.

Chris,

The car is under wraps for the winter, I just installed the bars over the past 2evenings. Easy install...Total time = 3 hours w/o creeper and limited work space. You should be able to do it in 2. Looks are much beefier. Will know what it rolls like when I get my new motor put in.

I didnt drop the exhaust...not necessary, just makes it a bunch easier. You can fish it out.

I had my car on jacks...wheels off. Which is better? the one that works best...the wheels on would hamper your efforts.

Hotchkis recommends doing the rear at ride height so rhino ramps would be best. The wheels really get in the way when you are trying to remove your bar end-links though. You also need to drop the exhaust if you keep the wheels on.

If you don't have ramps, putting the car on jacks work too. I have no idea what the reasoning is behind installing at ride height.
