GROUP BUY: Addco rear sway bar

[edit] MORE DETAILS: PRICES ARE SET! EACH KIT IS JUST $132.73 PLUS SHIPPING! I HAVE RECEIVED THE FIRST BATCH OF SHIPPING QUOTES AND POSTED THEM BELOW:

I got word today from Addco that our order has finally been completed and they will ship Wednesday 11/4 and Thursday 11/5. Please post up when you get yours so we know it arrived safely.


Payment info removed

To keep things simple, I will give everyone the opportunity to get their payments to me within a reasonable time. As I am still waiting on some shipping quotes from Addco I am not setting a firm deadline just yet. After all payments are collected, I will place the order with Addco. After the order is placed they have stated a 3 week manufacturing timeframe. My hope is to have the order placed by August 31st. I will keep everyone updated here in this thread. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR COMPLETE ADDRESS ALONG WITH YOUR PAYMENT. This will help speed things up when I place the order with Addco.

As always, if you have questions, I'm easily reachable here or Facebook (Brian Kimmitt).

If you remember the Eibach group buy that I put together back in 2013, this should go just as smooth. I am willing to put all of the leg work in and handle everything but before we go too much further, I want to ensure we have enough people interested in buying one (or more!) of these sway bars.

I need your zip code as well to get an exact cost!

WHO ELSE IS INTERESTED???? WE NEED AT LEAST 20 ORDERS!

Thanks for the interest.



I spoke with Addco this morning and they ARE interested in helping us with a group buy!! They are willing to give us a bulk discount if we purchase AT LEAST 20 of the rear sway bar kits (p/n #446). We are still nailing down exact pricing but expected price will be ~$151 or so. THAT IS SHIPPED TO YOUR DOOR (*if you live outside the continental US, I'll get a quote when the kits arrive)! This is a savings of over $50 off the retail pricing (ex. Jegs, Summit). Turn around time on these kits is about 3 weeks to manufacture after the paid order is placed.

Addco no longer offers the #446 in red, only black. Sorry to those that had their hearts set on red!


Gauging interest here -- If Addco offered their rear sway bar at a discounted rate, would you be a buyer? The rear sway bar kit currently available for the Beretta typically sells for ~$200. I have contacted them asking about the feasibility of a group buy in an effort to get the price down a bit -- Every little bit helps, right?!

So, if Addco is interested in selling a # of their kits at a discounted rate, are you interested?

Whole a lot better than stock one.

Stock internal bar fits with Addco, so you can have both for maximum unsprung weight... I mean torsion stiffness.

Agreed. Best bang for the buck you can do with the suspension...

The question is tho... Is it worth the money to up the Indy from the Z51 to an Addco or just stick with the OEM bar?

I,ve never driven a Z51 car. But I guess if you feel the rear is not suffering excessive body roll with it, it's better cause it's lighter. (at least looks like it is)

On my white car the, rear is really solid with ADDCO+FE7, custom springs and plastic bushings, but I can feel the axle wobbling sideways, needs WATT-links if would like to cure that.

I would be interested but I have the base suspension. Would I have to get two or just one and find a bar off a GT/Z26?

I'm currently Beretta-less, but should be picking one up in the next month or so... If that happens then I'm in.

I guess I have to have one too.

And if we want them powder coated a certain color "as a group" this would be a good time to address it.

I vote for RED!
