    I'm looking to add a rear sway bar to my 2002 AC
    I've seen the Hellwig 7700 mentioned a few times with mostly positive reviews.
    -- Wondering if there are any other options out there that people have used & are happy with?
    First Gen application, will be used more or less on street & some country gravel roads.

    Thanks!!

    Thanks all — So, next question would be, Where are you guys buying them? I talked with one online seller today and they said they get them shipped from Hellwig and the lead time is weeks....I would like to get one faster than July.
    Any leads?

    I bought mine in the early winter of 2018 from gleebay for around $300ish. They are flashing up on my lower advert bar on this site for $374 right now. They’ve shot up in price.

    I do remember having to wait for the order somewhere around 3 weeks. I should have ordered from Big Gurrl, who dropped their price a few days later, to $274 and had 2 day ship at the time.

    None of the 1st gens came with one, did they? I'm thinking not, but if so that could be an option.

    My 2002 came with a front bar, but no rear bar. The 2003 was the first year there was an option from factory with the rear sway.

    So we've got 19mm, 25.4mm, and 28.57mm. Just for more info to decide, my car has 24/26mm bars f/r. Now I'm curious what size the front is...

    Slightly larger, but getting close to your tape measure breaking point at 1 1/2”. :D
