Who CURRENTLY sells these? What is the best price you've found RECENTLY? JC Whitney tells me they don't have them anymore. Anyone know if the PRD sway bars ever made production? ETA? Price?

Addco only makes a rear anti-roll bar for our car. It is Addco part# 699. I'll definitely post my feelings on the bar after a couple days' driving time.

you should run your car through the slalom before putting it on... then see how much it makes a difference...

Too late.

Its on. It took maybe 10 minutes. It appears that the endlink on my driver's side is bent. I have no idea how in the hell that happened, but it looks like I'll be replacing that soon. I suppose I'll try the Nissan Altima endlinks that everyone seems to be so fond of. I don't really feel any adverse handling effects due to the bent piece.

Anyway, my initial impression of the Addco is that I can definately tell its there. The car seems to behave differently. I recently installed the rear STB, so I'm still familiarizing myself with that, but I do feel a certain rigidity to the rear end of the car. I have bunches of backroads near my house, but I think I'll test the limits in a parking lot or something before going nuts there. I'd hate to learn the limitations or discover some unexpected flaw by plowing off the edge of a ravine into some sharp rocks:)

I'll continue to post my impressions as I become more confident in the bar.

I just purchased an ADDCO bar (#699) from JC Whitney last month. It was only $116 with Shipping. It made a HUGE difference on the track.. :eek:

Any more "impressions" on the rear sway bar??

Anything to "look out for"? I've got mine arriving next week (had to be specially manufactured here in OZ) and want to know what I'm getting myself in for!

THanks.,

I'm running a '94 626 2.0L and after adding the rear sway bar I notice a big difference in the turn in. My car now turns into the corners much better and with considerably less frontend push. I did loop it on my second hot lap. If your not careful the backend will come around much easier, but it is very controllable once you've run a few laps. I really like the difference. I am looking forward to our next track event.
