As of now i have ss springs and 9c1 bars. I miss the way my IROC handled. I have read i can achive this with hotchkis suspension. But they are way too expensive. I hear 71-79 f body front bars fit our cars but what about the rear. If anybody is selling hotchkis or knows where to get them to SoCAL area for cheap let me know.

I started with springs and shocks. Then a year later I decide I only live once, and shelled out the cash for Sways and Lca's. I am running the full Hotchkis package.

I know you don't want to spend that much money, and I dont have experience with other setups. I really didnt want to mess around with fine tuning everything, so I went with products that were made to all work together.

When I first installed the Springs and Bilsteins, I was amazed at the improvements. It was night and day! Then I added the sways and was shocked again. It was a little stiffer than stock, and the ride is a tad bumpy on certain roads, but it is still really "daily driverable".

Here is my post on my suspension experience.

Hope to help some. If you are ever around, I'll let ya drive mine and see what you think.

A set of new sway bars is going to cost around $ 400.00 for front and rear. Hotchkiss, Helwig, HO specialties which sells a clone of the Herb Adams setup all cost close to the same dollars. If you search the for sale section and maybe E bay you can often find better deals on used parts. Either way bigger sway bars will provide a significant improvement in cornering ability.
