Re: Addco vs. Hellwig sway bars

pros and cons of rear Hellwig and Addco:
Addco larger diameter bar
Hellwig bolts on, Addco need to drill holes in frame
Hellwig bar is cold formed Addco is bar heat formed

either one is better then none

I'll be honest with you - if you're lowered more than 2 inches you should go with the Hellwig. The Addco installs well for stock or even lifted trucks.

Re: Addco vs. Hellwig sway bars

I am lowered about 5" so maybee Hellwig will be my choice. I also drag race alot too, so the softer hellwig bar will retain the weight transfer I need for traction.

this is with a hellwig. do you take your truck to the max and have it do this???? that is pushing it to the limit. on the street it may seem like it helps a lot but take it to do some auto cross and you soon find it isnt doing much. i need stiffer front springs now. TRD how did you lower your truck and what manufacturers are the parts from??

[/qoute] TRD how did you lower your truck and what manufacturers are the parts from??

[/QUOTE] Flipped ball joint and Eibach's, though I want someting stiffer w/same drop. Mono leaf w/1" block all on Tockico's. I'm also looking to get KYB short struts. I push it hard on the street, like that pic, but not that often. I really want to autocross but my tires suck a$$, so I'm looking at a new set up for that.
