Our bar is 12lbs lighter than the solid BMR bar, which helps a lot. Unfortunately it cost more to offer it is a tubular option which makes it more expensive to purchase. But a lot of people spend way more than $50 to save 12lbs. The bar tucks tight up around the rear end too, it doesn't hang as low as others.

Hope this info helps.

Great to hear Mike!

Re: Anti roll bars.

UMI rear bar installed. To be honest, I haven't driven the car enough.... yet.... but so far, so good. Jacking up can be a challenge. I should make a fixture for my jack that cradles the bar in a pocket. hummmmm.. thanks, another project.

Re: Anti roll bars.

HRpartsNstuff "Your WWW performance parts supplier" On my car. Again at the time there were not many options. It has served me well.
Above the axle weld in would probably be a little more ridged but I run a full exhaust and the lower bar gives you room for that.

Re: Anti roll bars.

I bought the UMI offering, it's easy enough to install although most likely best when welded to the housing. I've only made a couple passes with it but have some serious adjusting to do on the drivers behalf. While no hard launches yet with a 1.47 60' being best so far (2nd gear launch) I can say the car didn't twist up like it did prior to installing the bar. There is plenty room to jack up the differential in front of this ARB.

That is what is used on this heavy hitter...

Re: Anti roll bars.

Seems like the HRparts-n-stuff bar is the prototype.

The GM style that bolts between the lower arms is a binding type deal. Works OK but when you get into the harder hitting cars seems like guys want a real anti-roll bar.

Thanks for that! Looks like the bar itself is between the shock mounts.

Re: Anti roll bars.

It is within 1/2" from where my bolt on bar was mounted on the upper cross member, I did have 3" tail pipes with the bolt in bar. The bracket closest to the tire would be the stock shock location.

I have the same H&R unit on my Buick GN... and Tom, I'm pretty sure that Paul Ferry (H&R) designed it and all others copied it.

Yeah…the original design must have been good because several manufacturers copied it and still sell them today! …but if you ask me, even though I still have mine on my GN, personally I have mixed feelings about it……but that's me...

P.S: --> H&R calls them "SWAY BARS", not "ANTI-ROLL" bars.

Re: Anti roll bars.

Anti Roll / sway bar Well if we getting picky here it is an anti roll bar but Paul refers to it as both since its bolt in like a sway bar I think when he first made he called a hybrid of both or something like that not sure if that still on his site
its function is too further control roll by attach to frame/ axle tube rather than just the control arms by loading tires so as to make car go straight consistently at launch and gear change ......... its not going to improve your 60' on its own if your set up is way off to start
