Eibach front and rear sway bar install

I got the front and rear bars from eibach and set them both to the hardest setting. Ill post with some results after i get to drive it for a littler. Install was pretty easy and they are significantly beefier then the stock bars.

Im also gonna say that those end links are going to be toast soon. They look like fragile pieces of $hit that you would see on a Focus.

We've got a Heavy Duty set of Adjustable end links available. I'll start another thread on Camaro5 shortly with pictures and more info. They are great pieces!

Kind regards,

I apologize!!!!

Let me know if you have any questions! You can always add the end links down the road! Maybe when you purchase the coil overs!

Kind regards,

Got to drive it a bit and it does make a significant difference. Handling is a lot tighter and it just feels better. Is there a particular reason it says not to drive on slick roads? It is raining here and im not flying all over the place, is it strictly talking race applications?

Are the Eibach bars hollow or solid?

I am curious.
