Re: sway bars??? (p0cket penguins)

Which brand should you buy???<p>Do I even need to answer this... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>As to should you get the engine bushing - YES. I love mine. I have the blue EVOLVE bushing and I bought the powerflex cross bar things...and it really tightens up the steering. You can get the engine bushing from EVOLVE for like $50....I think bang for the buck - that's the best mod I did to my car. Probably the cheapest mod I did too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b5da29b3127cce915b2283364200000016109BaM27Zy2k" BORDER="0">

IPD all the way for anti sway. Bushings I would say yes. Brace I would say know until a good one is designed as a true Cherry brace

Re: sway bars??? (p0cket penguins)

what's wrong with EVOLVE's sway bars?<p>I heard IPD doesn't even make their own sway bars anymore..I heard they sold off that part of the company...

Re: sway bars??? (mike_c70)

I agree. They always spend a good amount of time designing and testing them out. Plus the fact that they have been selling them for some time now. IPD gets my vote for sways.<p>Kevin

And it's not a strut brace. It's some sort of brace that we don't know if it actually works or it's just cosmetic.
