i have the hotchkis sways and IMO they are great. you can really feel the difference in handling and i have stock suspension. the bushings are polyurethane which replaces the stock rubber bushings. i have mine set at medium front and rear.

Yes they are. Go to Summit Racing and punch in those Part numbers.

An additonal update for me is that I ordered my sways from Intense Motorsports and my total shipped was $334.00. They said it would take a total of 4 days to ship. I shopped around a while and they are the cheapest I found other than some other people that did not return my e-mails. Look at it this way, customer service and fast shipping is worth the few extra bucks I paid. The cheapest I saw for pricing was $299 shipped but no one replied to me when I wanted to order. I also called my local dealer and they quoted me at $339.00 plus tax.

P.S. I recieved the bushings today from Summit so I can install the sways as soon as a get them.

so, does anyone have the part number for the "collars" used to stabilize Hotchkis sways? - mcmaster.com was mentioned at one point.

Found these parts on mcmaster.com - collars to go on Hotchkis sway bars to prevent them from shifting around:

Part #6436K42 - Two-Piece Clamp-On Collar SS, 1-3/8" Bore, 2-1/4" Outside Dia, 9/16" Width - $20.33 Each

Part #6436K92 - Two-Piece Clamp-On Collar SS, 15/16" Bore, 1-3/4" Outside Dia, 1/2" Width - $13.96 Each

first is for front bar, second for the rear. need 2 of each. can someone verify that these are correct?

/edit sorry, urls don't work - go to www.mcmaster.com and search for the part #'s.

for the record: 6436K146 is the same as 6436K42, and 6436K141 is the same as 6436K92. however, 6436K42/6436K92 (parts i found) are stainless steel, and 6436K146/6436K141 (parts amg35 found) are aluminum. and guess what: aluminum parts are less than half the price of stainless steel ones!!! i'm ordering a set of the ALU ones, unless someone tells me otherwise by tonight. thanks, amg35!

/edit BLAH i went ahead and ordered it. it was around $40 shipped (they add shipping/tax later). will let you guys know how it goes.

Hey guys, I wrote earlier that I paid $334 for the Stillens from Intense Motorsports. Acctually Daren adjusted the price so that the shipping was lower(G35driver special) So I acctually only paid $314.00 for them shipped. I recieved my bushings from Summit racing yesterday and now I should see the sways later this week. Summit also included a cool SUMMIT RACING hat free of charge.

Then again, buying poly bushings in addition to the Stillen sways means that in most cases, the Hotchkis bars are still cheaper (even w/the addition of collars).

i couldn't even find a set of hotchkis sways, which prompted my decision to get the stillens. regardless, it seems like they are both quality products.

what exactly is the benefit of polyeurethane bushings over rubber ones? They are probably a little stiffer, but what else?

i believe it's just that, stiffer - less flex under stress. might last longer too.

DannoG35, did you ever get your sway bars installed? I just received the prothane bushings I ordered via UPS today.
