Default Sway Bars and Strut Bars, Interested?

I am curious but are people interested in ADTR making sway bars and strut bars for the Bonneville 92+? ADDCO does offer a rear sway bar that is 7/8 inch thick and I can get it for $190 shipped to your door which includes the urethane bushings as well. If you want this, just shoot me an email at [email protected].

But also for Strut Tower bars I was going to go get some T-6061 or 7075 Aluminum or some Titanium and make a stronger strut tower bar for my car, or actually more of an entire engine compartment brace. How many other people would be interested so I can make it a producable design instead of something insane just for myself. I need a head count basically for Sway Bars and Strut Tower Bars. If people are really interested in Strut bars, like 5, then I could make a design and have it on my car by next week, see how it works, and then depeding if I like it have it produced for the following week. Since ADTR makes the products we will have a quicker turnaround for R&D and production since they are all hand-made.

If anyone has questions, just email me, [email protected].

Of couse they do. But the stock strut tower bar can flex quite a bit which isn't what you want when you are turning. And the rear sway bar is not stiff enough to prevent the car from "hopping" or sliding out the rear end. Ever try taking a turn or a mountain pass at 40-50 mph? Need a stiffer suspension to do it, it will also help just in general city driving by giving the driver better steering response and road input.

Addco rear bars are good. We need a good stiffer all around option when it comes to parts but I donít believe most Bonneville owners are going to pay. So my "opinion" is make them on a custom basis and a serious buyer will buy. Most will not.
