    I just picked a Hotchkis sway bar 22447r on e-bay for $85.99 from hotchkis garage free shipping they are the same color as my pierce 2 point gray and the best packing i've seen in a long time, they said only 5 more so jump on it if you want one.

    How much more turn-in or wheel tripoding do they provide?

    I like how they really took the time to CNC bend the contours into the design rather that use a straight bar and spacers with some other manufacturers. I like to lift the rear end from the rear beam and a swaybar that hangs lower would be an issue for me, the Hotchkis is bent up and out of the way. Hotchkis also incorporates 3 mounting points per side for a solid connection, while the others use just 2. It's all in the details and quality that went into it. They're also a local SoCal business and well known in the aftermarket suspension biz.

    I would use caution with using a Hotchkis sway bar in a location that has snow. I had one on the rear of my mini cooper and within 5 years the bar rusted all the way through and cracked. For the Mini they were using a hollow bar, not sure if thats the case for the St. The part that bothered me the most was when i contacted them they would not help me out at all and were rather rude. I have been playing with cars for over 30 years and i have never had a sway bar crack.

    I’m not worried at this price and not likely to happen, but should there be any issues It comes with a lifetime warranty and they are local to me.

    The bars are hollow, that’s a huge reason why I prefer it with it’s lighter weight. Hotchkis has been making hollow bars for more than a decade. They are not the only ones making hollow sways. Anyone concerned with corrosion can take measure by shooting anti corrosion lube, etc. into the bar and cap off the ends with plastic end caps or plugs available at Home Depot. Not a big deal.
