: Since the Malibu area is obviously full of public roads I didn't get to really push it too hard but yesterday I decided to burn off some of my Easter Brunch energy by hitting some of my favorite (uninhabited) twisties. I have to say these make quite a difference. By the time I was half way through my usual route I was driving with much more confidence than before and the car was glued. It wasn't tail happy at all... very well balanced.
: Some people had warned me about the "slap" from potholes with after market sways but it's not bad... infact, I kind of like it. The car feels more solid without the sacrifice of too hard of a ride (still makes me even more interested in doing springs and shocks though;)).
: If anyone is contemplating the addition of sways, I'd be more than happy to pass on some of the advice that I'd been given. I did a lot of shopping around and ended up getting the bars from Eric at Supreme Power Parts (www.supremepowerparts.com) for a hell of a good price. I called him initially because of someone on this list saying how good his customer service is (I'm pretty sure a few people have done a few group purchase through him also)... and it was. He went out of his way to make sure I got the bars I wanted exactly when I wanted them. (no financial interest... just a happy camper)
: I'll give the bars a real test in about a week and half when PM3 and I go spend the weekend at Streets of Willow... Hopefully I'll be better there than I am at GT2;)
