Well its a shame because I thought about getting his springs and his sway bars but I'm afraid I wouldn't my product. Which leaves me to think how good were his springs and sway bars anyway?

Well, I got his sway bars(the daily driver) and they are great. I couldn't believe the difference from stock to these. Night and day. If he has them in stock, I would get definitely recommend getting them. Only if he has them in stock. Ask him the right questions the right questions before dealing with him if you go his route. I wouldn't go that route right now anyway because of all the problems that is going on with him. And I'll leave it at that.

For street driving, I'd go with Hotchkis. I have the setup and they are very nice over stock.

BBODY performace is NOT a reputable source for products at the moment.

I have the Hotchkiss sway bars. They are great on the street and great on the race track. My car with the Hotchkiss bars and stock springs took first place (Modified)on the road course at Pocono during Mountain Madness. Tom's car, with MANY more mods than mine, and with his sway bars and springs placed 2nd.

Well, now that you mention it...
According to the mods detailed in the article featuring his car in GMHTP, which was done at Mountain Madness, I count at least 22 points per the ISSCA points system. Anything over 17 points puts you in the "RACE" class. But ISSCA dictates that owners to class their own cars and relies on the honor system. There is no protest or appeal system within ISSCA if someone mis-classes their car. What can I say?

I would have been pissed if I was the 3rd or 4th place car in "Modifed". I beat him anyway, so it didn't directly effect me. Tom's time would have taken 3rd in the "Race" class that day if he had run in the proper class.

Ditto what Thump said. The Hotchkis springs have a progressive rate, allowing for great handling (especially when getting their rear LCA's, and sway bars too)when taking the SS on a sprited drive, and a comfortable ride when cruising. I've been really happy with them, and the stance the car has!
