    Im being a bit off topic, but that’s cool to see something from UMI on here. A friend of mine is building an old Malibu and bought a bunch of suspension parts from them. 3 of us rode out to their shop in philipsburg PA to pick up the parts, and we ended up spending the whole day there. They gave us a tour through their whole shop and they’re awesome guys and make really nice parts. Turns out they had just bought an oval track with a road course and were using it for product testing on their race cars. They let us go out to the track and hang out with them while they did testing and ran their cars around the track. It was really cool to see their operation and everyone there is awesome. It reminded me a lot of URD as far as the quality of their stuff and how friendly/helpful everyone is. Nothing but good things to say about both of these companies.

    Didn’t mean to get off topic lol. Just was cool to see a product from UMI on here.

    They're not amazon sways, he's saying that he ordered a set of sways off XII's website and they came at the same time as some other Amazon orders. That is outrageous that people have been waiting nearly a year on the group buy and someone who ordered off the website got them first......

    From what I've found, the UMI sway bar bushing and billet mounts are the nicest available. I may have measured incorrectly, I'm coming up with 1 3/16" thick bars front and back. I bought mine used so I don't know what was done, maybe stock, maybe aftermarket. Anyhow, looking to replace my old worn bushings, looking at options, UMI offers 7/8, 1, 1 1/4, 1 5/16, 1 3/8. I suppose I could crawl under and remeasure, it wouldn't be the first time I measured wrong.

    "A little pricey" indeed, about $100 more than summit's offerings from energy suspension and such. URD has their nice kit which looks to use energy suspension stuff, which is probably what I'll end up going with.

    Any help regarding stock size would be appreciated.

    I went with Hotchkis billet bushings. I’m not a road course warrior or anything like that but those energy suspension bushings just didn’t do the sway bars any justice.

    Thanks, I found them at summit, 23391188, still pricey at $118. Now I just need to crawl under and remeasure them. I noticed the fronts had a weird sleeve thing between the bar and bushing.

    To keep the sway bar from moving laterally when the suspension cycles
