Got mine and have them installed. Great addition to the car and although I don't generally push the car hard I find it's tightened up the handling considerably and sure flattened out the cornering.

Gotta get under there and move the rear bar to the center hole.

SB, why are you moving it too the center?  I thought the first hole approximated the ZOK bar which was more than adequate for a street car>

Christian : If you ordered under the group buy you  should have received the back bar last March as he got those done first .If you have the back bar and kept the box it was shipped in there is an order number on it for reference mine was 1055 .I got an email in May that the front was supposed to ship but I never got it I sent Dave a couple of emails and it sounded like he could not find my order .I finally called the shop last week 815 439 4547 took a few calls but talked to Matt (great guy) gave him my info order # ,UPS tracking number and had my front sway bar within a week .According to Matt they still had bars at the powder coater and they were to be shipping them out as soon as Dave got back from the Nationals I would give him a call.

Just wondering if anyone has received  the freebies (wonder what they are?) that Dave said he was going to give the people who waited so patiently (9 months for me ) on the initial order

Can anyone provide advice on installing the lock collars? Do they go inside or outside the bushings? Do you have to make the best guess with regards to centering the bar or can you drive it around and let it self center before installing? Thanks in advance.

I have not installed mine yet hopefully next week I will be working on my  suspension upgrades and I'll try to figure out what needs to be removed and how these things go on .Yea it would have been nice if they sent some instructions and give you a heads up on installation  the only thing that I can suggest is emailing Dave

If you are doing your suspension, I suggest installing the rear sway bars while you have the rear struts/springs off because the extra length on the new sway bars will make it difficult to slide in.  Since my car is lowered with H&R springs and Koni yellows, I had to unbolt the rear trailing arm from the frame to fit the rear sway bars in.

Thanks ! I've got Eibach Sport springs and I just ordered a set of Konis should be here anyday I'm waiting for my rear probeam to come back from the powder coater so I plan on doing it all at once.  Just wondering how long it took to get your bars for me it was almost 9 months they sell great stuff but their customer service leaves a lot to be desired

I think I got them when the majority of the group buyers got theirs. I just haven't had a chance to install them until recently.
