thanks man! Quick question will these make the suspension any stiffer? I kind of like the ride soft for cruising etc.

I was watching speed culture studios videos on YouTube and him as well as a couple others in the comments mentioned for AWD the front sway bar isn’t necessary due to the front hair being stiffer already compared to rwd OEM bar

Yes, the Hotchkis offers the highest spring rate rear stabilizer bar (RSB). So? If you just put that on the back, and leave the FSB OEM, even the AWD version, the car will likely oversteer at the limit (tail happy). To counter-act that, a higher-rate front stabilizer bar (FSB) will help. In the end, the car is neutral at the limit (mine is anyway), and my tires don't squeal at the limit either, indicating the suspension is keeping the tire thread flat in the corners. For example, I have a two-lane entrance ramp to the highway, which has a 90-degree turn - I can power through that turn in 3rd gear, nail the gas, and I can power-slide the rear end, because the Hotchkis RSB and suspension is keeping the tires flat to the ground. 502 WTQ also helps, too!

But again, putting these higher spring rate SBs on is worthless if you don't upgrade the end links, too.

Yup.

The higher spring rate bars will stiffen the suspension (they are connected to the lower control arms). As for the soft ride during cruising, if you 1) adjust the end links (i.e., SPL Parts) with the tires loaded, and 2) make sure the bolts for the end links can "drop-in" to their mounting holes in the control arms, you'll minimize the effect of the SBs while NOT in a turn. It's an important step that some installers f**k up.

As much as i pointed out these install steps yo my mechanic I still think they **** it up, I still hear metal noises especially on low speed and turning going over curbs.

The handling improvement is very noticeable.

You'll get noise from any adjustable solid-type rod-end end link if they are not installed in a neutral position with the tires loaded. When I installed mine in the rear, I jacked the car up, and then slid my Rhino Ramps under each rear wheel to make the end link adjustment. On the front, the race shop installed the end links.
