We are selling the same product from Hotchkis. We are located in California and can provide tech support if needed.

Every car will respond differently to anti roll bars and each person has his/her preference on handling.

The anti roll bar is on our project 335i with TC Kline Coil-over suspension with 400 lbs front and 500 lbs rear springs, camber plates and a Quaife differentail. Understeer and body-roll is reduced, and vehicle is more responsive. Basically, the same benefits Hotchkis has mentioned.

What is involved with the installation? I have heard of varying difficulties including dropping the rear subframe. Thanks...

The front bar is easy. The rear will require the drop of the rear subframe.

Thanks, I haven't climbed under the rear of the car (been under the front more than a few times ) to look at what is involved. Any hints or tips and does the kit include any instructions as they are not listed on Hotchkis's website?

Thanks again...

The Hotchkis anti-roll bars are hollow, so if weight is a concern they are lighter.

The bushings have zerk fitting for re-lubrication, so you dont haveto remore anything when the bushings get noisy.

The balance btw front and rear sway resistance is different. The H&R rear bar is big, resulting in inside wheel lift and loss of traction. The Hotchkis system, particularly in combination with the Bilstein PSS9/10 coilovers and a LSD, will provide better control, traction, and turn-in. Camber plates and strut braces complete the picture (assuming you already have forged lightweight wheels and proper non-rft tires)...

Thanks!
