Hotchkis vs. Eibach Sway Bars

I'm currently looking at sway bars to buy and I'm now stuck between the two. From what I've been told, the Eibach is better due to the solid construction and will notice a significant difference, but I am not able to find enough reviews to find this true. While on the other hand I see that a good portion of the people buying the Hotchkis brand, many say that it's good, while some say they can't apparently tell a difference. I'm currently set up on a 370z suspension system so my ride is already bumpy, I just want it to handle significantly better.

I could be wrong but i hear Hotchkis end links break. I could be wrong. I hear them saying that about Stillen sways but so far i had them on my car for about 2 years and i drive pretty hard and still no problems w/ it. I hope other get on here and can answer better then me.

Just finished installing my eibach sways. Haven't gotten a chance to really test them yet, just a lazy drive to make sure nothing was loose/squeaking. I went with eibach cause they have an adjustable front bar, whereas hotchkis doesn't.

have hat hotchkis in for a couple of days, great so far, definitely a noticeable difference. and - not to pick a fight or anything - hotchkis rear has three different settings and front has two different settings.

No issues with endlinks breaking. I think that was on much earlier versions for older Gs, i.e. not the gray ones. To be honest the bar is pretty damn beefy, esp in the front, I'd think my stock end links its attached to would break first imo. Best mod I have done - and I have the sport that already had bigger sways. I can't imagine driving with the sloppiness of regular stock ones now.

I do hear any beefy sways are gonna make your endlinks life shorter. I don't think there are beefy aftermarket ones for our cars yet.

Hotckis owner here. had them on for almost a year now. man does it cut now. the car stays soo much flatter through corners now, and it gives the car a bit more oversteer which is nice. best mod to date.... well besides the exhaust. i love my FI catback

Had the Hotchkis on for over 3 years now (1st group buy), no problems at all.

If anyone tells you that they can't tell a difference from stock, their opinion means **** and their *** meter is broken.

Just get whatever one you can get for cheaper. Can't go wrong with either brand. I used this approach end ended up with the Eibach's and they're great.

Both are quality sets. Hotchkis do not offer adjustment in the fronts, just in the rear with 3 settings. Correct me if I am wrong, but for the X version with the Hotchkis, the fronts are also adjustable. IMO you can't go wrong with either. I'd just go with the cheaper one personally. That's just me though. Whatever you go with, you will notice major improvement in handling right away.

hotchkis owner here, paired with KW V3 and SPC front and rear camber. This set up is great for fast road driving, but on track, the super beefy hotchkis means that there is a bit of understeer, especially with the stock 222/50/18 front tire without a lot of tread, understeer is a issue in slower and tighter turns. but on fast corner, the car is very stable.
