Thats what I figured. Thanks for the response.

The Cusco sway bars clear the HKS Ti TD very well:

So what are the pro's/con's of running hollow vs. solid? It seems like hollow does not give up noticable amount of stiffness versus the sold, but would help keep extra weight down.

Thanks!
Just installed my Injen Super SES dual exhaust system last night and it fits with the Progress Tech rear sway bar & GT Spec rear lower lateral bar.

stiffness: 9-32-63 / 54-92-146%; both 5-way [4]
So when it says 146% stiffer for the hotchkis does it mean is the multiplier 1.46 or 2.46(246%)?
i.e when the stiffness is lets say, 10, using the hotchkis rear at the stiffest will be 10 x 1.46 or 10 x 2.46?

Default Nismo Sway Bar, question

Can I use the Nismo Sway Bar on a 06 Track Model with VDC? If not what other brands can I use.

Thanks

I have the h&r front and rear sways and have been running them for about 3 months. They are solid i think cause they are way heavy, more than stock at least. The differance is night and day though. I have stock suspension and there is very little body roll in the front on the lightest setting and in the rear on the hardest setting there it is obsolete. how ever my car is stripped so it might be different with some weight. The bushings the come with are kick *** too. I havent even greassed them yet and still no noise.

I know this is an old post, but I figured I'd chime in just so it's noted in here. If an aftermarket swaybar is listed as 146% stiffer than stock, then you take the stock strength and multiply by 2.46 to get the aftermarket strength. A bar that is 100% stiffer is double the stiffness, so you'd multiple by 2.

Here's an interesting read.
It confirms my findings of the hollow bars not having anywhere near the stiffness of the solid bars.

not for nothing but what you expect a manufacturer who sells solid bars to say?

the ONLY way to know what is stiffer, or not, is to measure it...and that takes some expensive machinary. Anything short of that is purely a guess

While my preference is solid bars as well for my own cars, I could not say which bars have the stiffest overall rates as it's beyond what I can measure here

Point taken. I'm not saying that one is better over the other. In fact, I'm in the camp that softer setups work better on our cars. I've found the stiff setting on my solid bars to be too much for my taste. Having owned both hollow and solid bars, their data seems accurate to me. There are of course other variables such as bushing material on my two setups that would also cause differences in reaction.

should be no problem, though there are better sways out there

Cusco fits for sure, as does Hotchkis
