Hotchkis can really tighten a car up, I have their f/r sway bars and springs on the Chevelle and it really made a difference

Considering how the Mustang keeps getting props for handling & steering, I'd really consider this upgrade, but I'd like to see the video compare a stock SS & the mod, and maybe a driver testamonial. Love the under-car shots.

That is JUST the sway bars??? looked good to me! If that was just the sway bars I think I may pass on springs, unless I REALLY want to lower it a smidge.

Nice, those dinky sway bar end links still scare me a little. There so thin.

Nice video. The under car shots were a nice touch.

That body roll looks much more controlled. I'm impressed and will consider this when I get my Camaro.

good stuff. Turnbull Canyon has some really tight, technical turns making for a good quick test of the suspension stuff.
