Aftermarket sway bars?

    Anyone have em? I got the idea from Truckin's build up of their Project Novikane, a 04 Sierra (the step sister of my Silverado haha), and it seems like a good idea for a handling mod. I am looking at the two sway bar kits from Hellwig. I want the truck to handle more like the a friends Shelby I just drove, I know I won't get her that great but these two bars seem like a good start :)

    Hotchkiss makes them for your truck.

    I can't answer your question but do you happen to have a link to the article you're referring to or was it not on their website?

    I have a 2003 Tahoe Z71. I used the Eibach swaybars front and rear. They were much bigger than the stock ones. They were easy to install. And, for a Z71, it corners almost like a sports car. Well, not quite; but it is much improved over stock.

    That's a pretty interesting article. Thanks for the post, Hawaii! I'm interested to know how this goes for you if you actually end up giving it a run. I hope it all turns out.

    Well I have to put in my 2 cents here... Lets just say my new plates will be eather Audi Flipper or BMW Flipper... There is a nice curve here in Rockland Cty that goes from 287 to the GSP. I take it at 75 MPH..I have raced BMW's on it and watched them slow down quick...I've seen the tires on them skip to the right. And I've been flipped the finger after passing them on the turn.. I Pissed off a Brand new S4 Audi the other day...LOL... Besides the longer wheel base and Pirelli tires and the sway bars..

    I have the full Hellwig kit on my 08 with the new rear End links..My old Av had the Hotchkiss kit. Both are better then stock.. The main thing between them is the Hellwig are Cold formed and a little bit stronger... But A big differance in handling....I would recommend doing this upgrade to anyone that wants to drive there truck like a Vette.... I do.....

    Guys,
    This is my next mod, after getting either the crystal clear head/DRL lights or a new grill shell. I have heard nothing but good things about the hellwigs, just trying to play 4wheelparts and SDsprings against each other as far the cost of shipping goes, and I just spent some cash on a new Flowmaster and a legitimate tip. Actually being in Hawaii now KILLS me shipping wise!

    Haha, I actually have thought about shipping them to my girlfriend in Orange County, CA and having her ship them to me a cheaper way. 200+ bucks to ship somethin like this seems real high, but Hawaii is a ways away.
