I have the Stillen front and rear sway bars on my '18 RWD RS. I set them to most aggressive setting and they handle great. Can't speak on the hotchkis products..

My Q50 is AWD and can only get a stiffer rear bar. I have the Stillen bar set on stiffest and I like the difference. No oversteer at the stiffest setting.

I heard stillen sway bars were good for G37. Only thing im worrying about their customer service. This is why I got hotchkis on my old G. Full stiffed helped alot. I guess no1 have hotchkis at this moment. Im gonna go ahead get hotchkis.

It's just a Sway bar.. You get it..What can go wrong with it?.. Stillen even gives you greaseable urethane bushings with it!

I have an AWD, so I could only install the Stillen Rear Sway Bar.

I'd also recommend getting the Adjustable End Links:

https://conceptzperformance.com/spl-...37_p_28870.php



The stock end links are w-i-m-p-y. There's no firmness at all in the bushings - the bolts are free to move in-space. Putting a stiffer bar is a great idea, but having all that compliance in the (stock) end links wastes some of the effectiveness range of the sway bar.

The SPL End Links should be installed with no preload, so the bolts should just drop-in.

I considered these, but what do I get as a ROI? Also, exposure to the elements. Now the SPL alignment parts. I may consider at some point.

Your ROI is not busting the stock end link bolts when you're tracking your car, or trying to ascertain the limits of your cornering speed of your Q when suddenly the stock end link breaks from the increased load brought on by the stiffer rear sway bar.

Put a different way, the SPL End Links are cheap insurance against a failure under high tire loading conditions.

When you have the SPL End Links installed, have your mechanic show you the stock ones - you'll see my point. It's like the bolts are sitting in Jello.
