Default Belltech Vs. Hellwig Rear Sway Bars

I want to hear opinions. Belltech vs. Hellwig...who runs which and what do you think of them. The reason I ask is I am building AutoX 2.0 to replace my Green truck. I have experience with the Hellwig bar but not with the Belltech one. The Belltech is less expensive, is there a reason for that? I want to hear your thoughts.

I went with belltech no complaints, If your really low you are going to have to do some cutting above the diff because it will hit. Also it will make your truck ride completely different and the rear will become stiff as shit. I stuck the exhaust out the bed before the axle since it constantly sandwiched it.

But if you like spirited driving this is 100% a must before any other mod.

No they are not available. Call Hellwig your self. I went thru 2 Ebay sellers. Both refunded me my money.

I called summit after 10 phone calls to different distributors and Nissan specific shops I know personally. Summit told me 6-8 weeks. I placed the order. a few days later . Summit called and they said they no longer produce the bar and refunded me the money...

Not to say a sway bar isn't sitting in a dusty shelf in some shop for sale. Good Luck.

Here is the email from Summit.


So no it is NOT available. Bet Titles ???

Just because its on Amazon or any where else doesn't mean they are available. A lot of times companies don't delete old product listings because they bring in visitors to their site. Do your self a favor and verify stuff before ordering.

FYI ... Just because it is on the net doesn't make it REAL or AVAILABLE !
