need to finish up my suspension!

alright well i have tein s-tech springs, tokico hp shocks, tanabe strut bar and now i need to pick a sway bar... i only want to go with a rear sway since we have a front wheel drive car and its already pretty stiff in the front (please correct me if im wrong about that)!

which sway bar do you recomend since i only want the rear??? i here hotchkis is good and i dont really know about many others.

If you are getting just the rear get the suspension technique bar since it is only sold for the rear. It will also save you the trouble of installing the front bar which is a pain. With just the rear you have to be careful with it at first because you could fishtail really easy. You might want to consider the hotchkis front and rear.

To add. The st bar is the same stiffness (if not almost exact) as the hotchkis rear. I would go ahead and get the hotchkis for 250 shipped plus 150 install because I know you will be happy with that. They sell sport sways and competition sways. The competitions are stiffer for more performance but you will get a slightly rougher ride because of them. Its really your choice between sport or comp.

thanks man

i thought since we have a front wheel drive car it already has a front sway. does the hotckis front sway really make that much of a difference?

yes it does make a big difference having front sways, the sways control body roll, which will be bad on any independent suspension vehicle, we need sways for the rear for the same reason, the rear is also independent, but you knew that lol. think about the guys/girls that have done aftermarket sways, and how they compare to stocks.

the hotchkis front sways do make that much a difference. plus they have a small amount of adjustability to them.

Of course it has a front sway...and a rear sway...or I would hope yours does. Lemme know how it handles if it doesn't. Go ahead and get hotchkis street front and rear. It shouldn't be too hard to install, just get a quote upfront because that front is a bitch to install.
