i dont see how they get 2800 though, the bars are 300, the strut bar is 400.

i have the hotch street bars, sprint springs, hotch rear link, apr strut bar only difference is the strut bar is not camber adjustable, and the springs i got drop 1.8 front and rear, not 1 3/8 front and 1 7/8 rear

I have probably the stiffest set-up you can go with. i have the Tein HA Coilovers with the Hatchkis Comp. Sways. You will love the way the cars handles with the sways but you do loose a lot of comfort. Take my personal advise and choose the Steet sways unless you AutoX alot. There is no need for the Comp sways on the street as i learned the hard way. Hope this helps!!!! thumbsup

There was a post a while ago about this wasn't there? I have'nt called Hotkchis yet, but that's all it will take. I believe the Comp roll bars need a race tire on a track because the bar might snap under hard driving on the streets on a street tire? I'll call tomorrow and post a reply unless anyone knows what i'm saying?
