MTI, Pfadt, Hotchkis or Pedders sway bars

Looking for real world experience with the MTI, Pfadt, Hotchkis and Pedders front are rear sway bars on the 2010 SS Camaro. Do the Hotchkis bars have welded in, machined ends or the flattened bar material like the Eibachs ?? I'm retaining the stock springs and OEM staggered 20x8 and 20x9 wheels and 245 front and 275 rear tires. Ed M.

It got the perfect setup. pfadt sways and BMR chassis brace. I have ran my car twice at Road Atlanta and also at the great Sebring in Florida. No problem running with the exotics and Z06's. MTI sways look identical to the pfadt sways. Pfadt sway bars made the best improvement to my cars handling.

For now waiting on final pricing for Pfadt coilovers if not right I will be putting the KW3's on. Car handles really well though with stock shocks and springs. I just need a little adjustabilty for the racing I do.

I'VE GOT HOTCHKIS ON FOR ABOUT 4K MILES, MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE AND I LIKE THE ADJUSTABILITY. CURRENTLY DOING THERE CHASSIS BRACE AND SPRINGS AS WE SPEAK. GREAT QUALITY AND MADE HERE IN THE USA.

The only bars I am aware of that have welded, versus pinched steel ends are Pfadts. And Pfadts Rear bar has three different settings for adjust-ability.



You will see a drastic reduction in understeer, and increased friction patch on the tires with these bars!

Good luck
