Anyone tried either the ADDCO or Hotchkis swap bars for the 4x4? What was the difference? I'm sure it makes a difference. What's the major difference between the two manufactures? I'd prefer actual experience. Thanks

In the many years I've been here and on other Dodge forums, I think maybe one person may have purchased Addco. I'm not saying there's anything wrong, but don't expect much to compare to. I can tell you Hotchkis vs stock is night and day with minimal to no body roll.

I'll end up buying the Hotchkis. This is strictly for street and will never see off road. What's the best shock, suspension and associated parts I can buy. I'd rather buy a system, but it seems no one has one. I can get trackable kits all day long for a 20+ year old BMW or a Mustang but not for these trucks. It's just an SUV. Unless you guys have some ideas

Definitely Bilsteins as far as shocks go, I (as do countless members) have them and love them, but if you're shopping around, Rancho and Monroe Sensatrac are also very good brands.

I was looking at the Hotchkis sway bars myself, my stock rear sway bar is pretty rusted and the front isn't much better. This may very well be a new mod for the near future.

I have hotchkis sways, with bilsteins and 20" tires and all I can say is what a difference. I pretty much drive my truck
like a sports car, it handles great and goes thru turns like it's on rails, not too shabby for a heavy ass truck!

Anyways I'm ordering the Hotchkis front and rear sways.

I wish there was a tubular front end for this vehicle as I know when I went with a tubular front end in my 93 coupe, handling was night and day. I think I lost 75-80 pounds off of the front end and there was some minor geometry changes. I'm really not a fan of the front and back, although dual centers aren't seen very often.

I was looking forward to getting some stuff powder coated as I have a new client in that biz.
