Hotchkis is one of the best suspension brands out there

I had sways, springs & sub-frames on my 94 TA GT and only have springs on my 00 TA. I need to get off my lazy butt and get the sways & SFC's for the LS1. I drive the 405 every day from OC to LA (60 miles each way) and I'll tell you, it's not about what you're doing "normally", it's about the times that you DO need to corner, dodge, burn an AWD Audi, whatever.

At $430-$500, it's a worthwhile investment. As a matter of fact, anything that makes a vehicle more controllable is worthwhile. I'll probably do all the suspension on my 5th gen before I touch any power adders. What good's speed, if you can't control it?

All depends on how you drive your car. If your driving consists of cruising below the speed limit with the seat reclined and your aviators on, you won't get any benefit from a sway bar upgrade.

However most Camaro owners buy the car for its performance, which consists of acceleration, handling, and braking. Even in daily driving you can have fun, such as on twisty back road or even on an entrance or exit ramp on the highway. The sway bars allow you to push your car harder and have it handle better. Body roll is the enemy in tight, twisty turns. By keeping the car more stable and level, you can carry more speed, and the car will hold the road better, which basically means better overall handling.

That curvy road my friends is what the locals around around here call Turnbull Canyon road..it's almost literally my backyard. I love those turns on that hill but that road has become very dangerous with crime.

That thing took those turns beautifully..the Firehawk does okay on those turns but not as good as the Camaro.

This is located off the 60 freeway towards the Hacienda Heights, Whittier area. Locals use the road to get to the Northern area of Whittier from Hacienda Heights.

No I've never ran GMR because I don't know what GMR is.

Gosh after looking at that video of the Camaro doing those turns pretty quick, that Camaro with a Hotchkis upgrade is sweet!!

Sorry dude, I meant that the tires can't be rotated, not balanced. My Bad! I'm just concerned that since the tires can't be rotated from front to back and back to front on this car that adding sway bars is just gonna make me corner faster and wear my unrotated tires out much quicker. Pros and cons to everything!!!
