ok, im definitively ordering some acorn gear, nice looking stuff...ok here might be a noob sound question, but i am interested in those aluminum front anti roll bar holder as well as others but i have a question with that...when setting up the front droop i obviously take shocks off and slide bars out,problem i always have is when i slide the bars back in, seems to throw one arm off, or both, so i use that adjusting tab on left side to gget close but never does the trick, do i use tab and mess with droop screws again, or are my anti roll bars outta wack, and that's where the aluminum ones would be better? sorry for the rant, just a setup issue i was having...thanks

Hello Tommy, I dont think it is your bars being out of wack, I would still use the side adjuster on the holder to take that little un-balanced out of the bars that works best for me. I would set the droop equally and then make sure that your bars are measured in the center of the bulkhead or swaybar holders and not in to deep. Try that if you havnt, I am sure you have already, just my2cents.

Tommy: Pull out your front sway bars and see which one is bent, if you cant get rid of the tweak with the adjuster than one of the two is bent.

YES, I'm gold now, lol. I am excited for the new year to join forces with all my friends again.. Naturally that not going to help my driving, so I guess I can be a Drew story for 2012. Stay tuned, Drew will have a lot to talk about and make fun of me, lol.

If your not a Drew story, you havn't gone out with him.
