I searched for a minute and didn't really find anything. I'm looking for a rear sway bar for my 2007 TBSS. I see good things about both, but I see the hotchkis comes with new poly bushings for the front and rear. If you went with the DJM what did you do for bushings? If you've had both sway bars, which one did you like the best? Thanks. I do plan on picking up endlinks from tony.

The DJM bar comes with bushings for the rear. It's the only bar I'd recommend. The handling difference is noticeable even if everything else is stock.

hotchkis hits axle
hotchkis no tabs welded so moves around
hotchkis is not adjustable

I worked with djm on the swaybar design and I have it for 225 shipped

Belltech worked great for me, it comes with new bushings. Got it on sale through Summit. You can solve the housing interference issues with a handful of washers. And I haven't had any lateral movement issues; but you can buy collars on eBay, use small muffler clamps, or even hose clamps with a little L bracket align it.
