NEW!! Hotchkis Strut Bar and prototype sways/end links

Hey guys,

Hotchkis used my car to test some of their new products on my car. The first hotchkis strut bar kit looks, feels, and performs great! Cuts down on chassis flex and improves handling greatly. Oh yea almost forgot... The strut bar fits you guys runnning Magna Chargers.

Also they put their prototype end links and thicker sway bars on my car to test at the track. The end links replace those dinky stock ones, with some new beefy ones that will not bend. Especially if running the thicker sway bars that they are testing.

Here are some pics of the stuff. Hope you like it. Contact Hotchkis if you guys are interested! They are an awesome company, from their workers to their products.

Does the strut brace require holes to be drilled in the car or does it use existing?

So are these thicker swaybars going to replace their current ones?

Yes it requires you to drill 4 holes total. Dont worry it will be easy and wont do any harm to the car. Just make it stronger

No, these sways will be another option for people who want a thinker bar for racing.

Those strut bars look amazing, was it a very noticeable difference without the sways? How much are they running?

Hi All,

Sam has one of the very first Strut Tower Braces we've produced, and we are actually doing the final track test on it this week. You can read more about it here, but we are still a few weeks away from production. We're taking pre-orders for the first run, and will have more info and photos coming soon!

Sounds good. Once they become available I'll probably be down for ordering one.
