Guys $500 bucks for another upgrade is a great price but would this be worth it if my car is purely a fun daily driver and will never ever be raced or see track time. Would this still benefit me or should I not worry about it?

depending on your driving habits, you are probably better off without it. tho if you do like to occasionally carve a corner or two on the highway at high speed, upgraded sway bars are a wonderful addition.

I had their sway bars on my 89 camaro, I didnt race it, and it made a HUGE difference!!! Even for daily driving. These will be on my SS very soon, without a doubt.

Can upgrading your F/R sway bar have any negative effect on 1/4 times or not?

Depends. Are you only driving straight roads or only taking turns at low speed? Then it probably wouldn't matter. However, if you have any fun roads you like to drive "enthusiastically" on, then it will matter.

You guys are making me lean towards adding these. Since the rear has 3 settings should I start with the lowest setting or what? Is this one of the better brands for this type of product?

I want them, but I have to wonder if it is going to cause me to wear out the tires quicker since they can't be balanced. Seems like these will allow me to corner faster and more stable thus wearing more outer and inner tread quicker. Any thoughts?

Is it just me or does it seem like there's a lot of movement in the rear subframe? It looks like you can see the the cradle move around the bolt in the undercarriage view. It looks like the cradle can use the bushing kits that are getting advertised

Sorry, I'm neither connected with the company nor is that my Camaro. That was a little more clear before the mods edited my original post to make it more "home-page-link" friendly. I'm just one of y'all.

Can't be balanced? I don't understand.... Your latter comment is true, just imagine it costs you a dollar every time you take a corner at speed

It looks more like the camera was fender mounted, I don't see the bolt head moving in relation to the donut. May just be the camera mount flexing under G's

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.
