You probably shouldn't get the Nismo sways unless you are matching them up with the Nismo suspension. Their stiffness ratings are a bit weird for most suspensions, including stock. I believe the front is only slightly stiffer than stock, while the rear is actually less stiff than stock (according to what's been posted around here). Plus, they are not adjustable.

im thinking about getting either the hotchkis or cusco sways. obviously, the cusco is a good bit more expensive. is there an appreciable difference between the two, or am i just throwing money away with the cusco.

I was gonna do Cusco (cuz I prefer solid) but I want an adjustable rear bar as I dont want to much oversteer. My current JIC set-up handles really well-after some shock fine tuning this weekend at the dragon. Im likely gonna get Hotchkis bars as they are adjustable and inexpensive.

My Hotchkis sway bars arrived today. They are the new ones with the four way adjustable front. I was surprised to see thier recommendations were still for the old ones (three way adjustable and different stiffnesses). I have done a number of searches and found two recommendations for the NEW sways:

#1) F: Second stiffest (+82%) R: Softest (+80%)
#2) F: Stiffest (+129%) R: Middle (+125%)

I know the only way to really know is to install and try. Just seeing if there is consensus out there for a good/smart starting point.

Other specs of potential importance: 19s, 245/275 setup, lowered 0.6" with RS*R Ti2000s.

Thanks

Many people with the Hotchkis bars start with both of them on soft (since they are both still stiffer than stock even on the softest settings), then crank them up from there for fine tuning. I ended up going with both of mine on medium and I like the way they perform on the twisties with the stock springs. Where you end up with your's will depend on other suspension mods you've made. If you've already installed springs which increase the rear stiffness a lot, then you may prefer the swaybars to be medium in the front and soft in the rear.

ok, I know the differences in solid vs hollow swaybars have been discussed, but it's always in relation to max stiffness...

my question is, if it was measured that both bar types had the same exact stiffness, we will say 125% over stock, is there a difference in the action of the swaybar? does one feel better than the other, one have a slight delay where it deforms then stiffens, etc.

I like the idea of hollow for the fact of the weight savings... my friend has the Evo bars and they feel like 40lbs!!

I hope this makes sense, if not I will try again

Intalled the Tanabe Rear Sway bar and its a night and day difference. The car feels so much more stable and planted. Body roll is pretty much eliminated and all around the car feels alot sportier. I would have to say that the say bar improved handling of the vehicle more than the coilovers that i previously installed. Props to Tanabe for a Great Product!!!

I can't seem to find much info on the H&R sways, stiffness and clearance for dual exhaust (HKS hi power more specifically)

Any info on Progress sways as well would be useful.

yep, thats what I have on my car. I absolutely love it! Car looks and handles great. I am thinking of stiffening the sways a little bit more as they are on the softer settings

2nd hole up from the end of the arms in the front. Given the power you have I would start with full soft in the rear and test, moving up to med in the rear only if you still can get the power down you want to on corner exit.
