no man trd or hotchkis all the way IMO. Just get the hotchkis if you want to spend a little less money. They are stiffer than the trd too if you want that.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Sometimes they're hard to come by, and I think I remember seeing them for like $385 or more...

Or, if those TRD's turn out to be a little stiff, you can just trade me for my ltuned ones! :D :wink:

The hotchkis sways, i've read that they are hollow... ??
Are they? and how can they be a "tad" bit stiffer than the TRD yellow sways?

yes they are hollow. I just recieved my hotchkis sways. This might be a stupid ? but is the inner hole on the sway for the stiffer setting and the outer hole for soft?

yes .. .the hole closest to the end is the softer setting & the hole inside that one is the harder/stiffer one....

Hollow yes but if he metallurgy is different it can be hollow & stiffer no problem .. .they could be thicker too than the solid versions of others bars....

hollow can = lighter weight & it's usually a good thing to go lighter...


... but i have no idea which set is heavier or lighter..... :wink:


go irv........

hotchki's sways are heavier than TRDs, just in case anyone cares... also the front is a larger diameter than the TRD, which is part of the reason you need to change brackets..
