Send a message via AIM to SV Concepts III
My vote goes for H&R, they are well known for their aftermarket suspension upgrades.

Don't forget, the Hotchkis are very light when compare to other aftermarket bars since they are tubular!

The Hotchkis gives the car a more balanced handling on a stock or close to stock vehicle(meaning not with crazy spring rates and damper settings).
