SN95 Hotchkis Rear Sway Bar?
I am looking at replacing my broken, 27mm cobra rear bar and considering the
Hotchkis, 1" tubular bar. The attachment differs from the standard factory
bar placement as it attaches to both the axle housing and chassis (to the
quad shock mount).
All things being equal, (bar diameter/wall thickness), is there a real
performance advatage to this design? I am running the J&M 3-piece, poly/ball
lower arms with FRP uppers. It's also a bit pricey at $285 from Summit.
The other option of course would be the Eibach, MM 24-25mm solid bars that
mount to the control arms for $100 less. I should mention my current 29mm
front bar, Eibach (Cobra-R) spring/Koni combo with the now busted rear
bar, was fairly well balanced. If anyone is running this bar, or can offer input
on the varius attachment options it would be appreciated.
