Don't know if you guys saw the front and rear bar set up for sale on the NAISSO digest, but there's the F-Body front and the HO rear. So my question would be, is it a better idea to get an aftermarket lower control arm's to work well with this bar or use it with the factory 96 set up?

Trust me when I say this. If you go bigger than a stock sway bar on the rear, you need after market lower control arms. Ask me how I know. scratch

Yea McKay is right. You will literally rip the stock LCA's apart with an aftermarket bar; ESPECIALLY the biggest bar on the market.

With that said, if you plan on lowering your car, the HO rear bar is too big. Way to stiff. It will cause a potentially dangerous oversteer characteristic..... Ask me how I know...

Furthermore, the F-Body front bar does work, but it does not fit right. The angle on the endlinks is way off, and the geometry is simply not correct.

Nothing on the market compares to the Hotchkis bars, and my suggestion is that it's worth spending the extra dough and getting the best. With the hotchkis bars you'll need aftermarket LCAS. You do not need the ultra expensive Hotchkis arms though. www.umiperformance.com has the best bars for the money period. Crovo, Myself, and many others run them with zero complaints.

Great thanks Bills' Razz I somewhat gathered that from a search on the forum but needed some reinforcements. It seemed like a great deal....oh well shouldn't spend the dough anyway.
