    Front Sway Bar Question

    Is there a negative to running different brand sway bars front and rear if they are both the same size?

    I currently have a Whiteline rear sway bar and was going to go with a Whiteline front sway but then I saw a pretty good deal on a SuperPro. Both are 27mm solid, so wasn’t sure if it would matter or not...

    In that case, they would be pretty well-matched.

    I would screw all of that and get Hotchkis instead, though. For both bars. We run Whiteline stuff of course for some things, but the 32 mm tubular bars from Hotchkis are really the way to go.

    Hit me up if you want to price a set out. The Hotchkis rear end links are also vastly superior to Whiteline's.

    i also would ditch the whiteline bar and change to hotchkis. thats what i did. i had alot of issues issues with my whiteline front bar. I assume they have designed them better by now but you used to have to install a clamp for anti walking and i always broke them off.

    +1 for the kiss. I run them front and rear. From what i've researched, they're an equivalent stiffness, but the hotchkiss is lighter due to it being hollow. I think i weighed my front bar when i swapped it out and the hotchkiss was like 7 lbs lighter than the stock bar. Or something.

    Are stock bars not hollow?

    Id like to see hard data on hotchkiss bars vrs stock weight.

    I'm pretty sure stock bars are solid? They're like 23mm i believe. It's been forever.
