Ahead of the JDM tuners, I'm very proud to announce.

H&R Germany has just added this item to their catalogue for the CL7/9. They now have a replacement F+R stabilizer/sway/anti-roll bar set priced @ approximate conversion of USD$650-$700. (Please check with authorized dealers/resellers on confirmed pricing in local countries/states.)

This new product can either be bought in a set or sold individual for either front or rear. I've just made an order for a set and will expect to see it before end of April 05. Can't wait to see what H&R has to offer to improve the handling of the CL7/9. Below are the technical specifications of this product.

H&R Product Code/Part Number - 33251-1

Diameter (Rear) - 22mm (3 Way Stiffness Adjustable)

Marking (Front) - 33251 VA (For Single Order Use Instead Of Set)
Marking (Rear) - 33251 HA (For Single Order Use Instead Of Set)

Material Construction - 50CrV4 Steel Spring
Forged Ends - For Adjustability

I was waiting on those for the longest time! I literally just e-mailed the rep at H&R yesterday about the sway bars and he said there was no new news about the sway bars. But Noel has contradicting info.... please explain?

Tuan209 - You'd have to check with your authorized H&R reseller/distributor. If you need help on where to find out, best to check out their main US site.

Goowakjai - His information is not updated, the above details I obtained are direct from H&R Germany. So it is accurate and true. Above highlighted in bold is the universal H&R part number. If you give him that, he'd be able to make an order for you.

bar is probably same as all other 22mm.. the bushing probably saves you a lot of trouble...

I selected H&R AG as they're one of the leading aftermarket suspension/chassis improvement specialists instead of losing focus and over-develop what is not necessary. All of their products come from serious and race proven R&D which no doubt benefits my requirements in terms of suspension/chassis handling improvements.

Another big company is Cusco Japan, but unfortunately Cusco has not stepped up to make alot of serious improvement products for the CL7/9 at this stage.

Just got informed, the stabilizer bars are still on backorder from Germany. Expected ETA, mid-May instead.

Cusco would be a good competition with H&R. However, Cusco rarely has full adjustable stabilizer bars for any make/model. This is where H&R is more superior. As far as build quality and R&D, they're both fairly level headed.

Still waiting for them at this stage, apparently H&R AG is having problems meeting order/purchase demands worldwide. They fired their engineer who heads their stabilizer manufacturing department and is apparently currently looking for a replacement. No expected date of seeing this product anytime soon.

Germany is not producing them for some reason and my initial order with them is still going through redtape just to get things moving forward. I've extended my disappointment with H&R DE in reflect of their "unable to produce" yet catalogue products for sale problem.

H&R may produce excellent aftermarket handling products, but not meeting production demand really equates to no business productivity. I've cancelled my order in disgust.
