In a couple of weeks I'm looking to add my first mod to my mini: a rear sway bar..
but i've researched several... the club members i've talked to said the H-Sport Sway bar would be great cuze its light.. anyone have experience with these, also is maybe provide me with a link as i had trouble finding it?
the H&R ones seems cheapest... but is it any good even if it is from H&R
the Alta one seems most reliable to me... anyone with this on their S?
many of the people i know have the madness one... and they say its good... anyone disagree?
inform me please also is whether they really do their job really well...
The H-Sports are very nice but they are designed to be used as a set. You really need to do front and rear together.
I have the Alta rear set on soft and really like it. Still some understeer remaining which is a good thing at my skill (or lack thereof) level.
One GREAT thing about the H-Sport are the zerk fittings to lube the bushings. Most of the other bars don't have this, like my madness. It was a PITA to get in their and lube up the bushings when it started to get cold last fall.
As for the H-Sport working as a pair with the H-Sport front...The H-Sport tubular bar has an effective rate the same as a 22mm solid bar. I don't see the front being necessary even though I'm sure H-Sport would.
Hoping the American madness sway bar is a good choice because I have just ordered one and its an arm and a leg with shipping included, dreading import tax please someone tell me I have made the right choice!
I've heard the Hsport front bar is only recommened when using their rear bar in the middle or firm setting. If you don't want to mess with the front, put in the rear bar and set it to the soft setting. Alot of guys on here said this is a great minimal setup.
