i just got around to installing them yesterday...
install was pretty quick because i took a wheel off to aid in the removal and installation.
the hotchiks sways are so much bigger and heavier than the stock sways.
body roll is partically detectable. they really tighen up the car alot.
if you got around 360 bucks you should get a set of sways.
after i cleaned up i hopped in the car and took it for a spin, i swear i had perma-grin for a couple hours and i only took a 10 minute spin around the neighborhood.

here's an installation tip... use some threadlock on those nuts. I had mine torqued to spec, but one on the rear came loose. Down side is that I didn't know this until I couldn't make a corner that I should have been able to. IS vs. curb. Threadlock is cheap.. Fixing the ride isn't. :-?
