Rear sway bar
Posted 07 August 2018 - 07:55 PM
I was looking into the Belltech one with the links towards the front. Does anyone who if theres a performance difference between links in the front or rear of a he axle??
Other option I was thinking of was using a GM SUV rear sway bar and adapt it. That one has the links to the back... anyone know how a stock rear sway bar would perform vs the Belltech???
Any other sway bars that can bolt up and work with the custom dual tail pipes I have? The muffler shop made them so it wasnt a standard bolt on muffler kit.

I looked into the Hotchkis as well. Discontinued many years ago.... the beltech is the closest to the Hotchkis bar..... I inquired about seeing if Hotchkis would build their rear bar again and I think they needed a minimum order of 20. I wasnt going to front over 6k and hope I could find enough people to buy them or try and put a group buy together.....
I think we should start a List to see who wants the Hotchkis Sway Bars. It may take a few months to get 20 people. But looks like we may have 3-5 orders here now. I'm down for a set.
Just called Hotchkis, they would need 25 Front OR Rear Bar orders before they will make a run! I think a List should be started!!!

I emailed them but havent gotten a response and my Belltech just arrived after ordering yesterday. Knowing me Ill put this one on during the weekend and buy the Hotchkis when they run a batch lol.
Haha that's how thst S**t happens. I had the Addco but when I swapped in the 14 bolt the sway bar hits the pumpkin and U bolts are to small. The guy I spoke with at Hotchkis said he would call me Monday/Tuesday with more accurate information on what is available and what he can do for us.

That's what I'm talking about. I am definitely in if they can produce a set. The rear bar is the same as the Tahoe/Suburban one, so it shouldn't be difficult to piece together a rear set. It is just if Hotchkis wants too.

Yea true. I have my Belltech ready to go on. Was just giving it a week to see if any real good news. They havent even responded to my email.
Yeah thats why I bought the beltech one. I figured hell would freeze over before this boondoggle got off the ground. Plus you have to drop the tank and I hate doing that so its a one and done for me...... lol.

I am down for a rear set. truck already has a factory front and other manufactures make a front one that works, if someone wanted to change it out. It's the rear one that is difficult to make work with girdles and certain exhaust setups.
