In Reply to: Using 4130 Steel for Swaybars. (more) posted by Bob ///M3 on October 06, 2000 at 21:40:36:

I'm a little confused about the conversation pertaining to the reasons why 4130 steel is not used for sway bars. UUC presently makes sway bars with 4130 chrome moly spring grade steel. They are in (my opinion) the correct sizes of 26mm front and 24mm rears. Am I missing something here? I assume we are talking about the same steel?

Hey Bob, were you eventually getting to the point that 4130 steel is superior material for building sway bars and that UUC now offers them for the masses?

Just wondering? Coincidentally, I was in the market for sway bars and came to the conclusion the Eibachs or the UUC (because of 4130 steel). I have a friend with the UUC bars and he loves them. Even so, he said the rear links gave him fits of problems. So he tossed them and got some rears links from Racing Dynamics and now he is extremely pleased with the whole setup.
