Hotchkis Anti-Roll Bar Upgrade

Since the beginning we have noticed significant lateral body roll in the Project STR MX-5. Installing the KW Variant 3 Coil-Overs with the stiffer spring rates improved it marginally, but we feel it still needs to be reduced further. Past test experience has shown us that tuning the anti-roll bars can have a significant positive impact on responsiveness and cornering power.

Front Bar Comparison - Hotchkis vs. O.E.So, the next logical step in our build-up was to install a set of Hotchkis Anti-Roll Bars. For this application, the tubular bars are larger diameter than the O.E. bars. They're also 3-way adjustable front and rear, which should help us tune the balance of the car to our liking, and to work well with the rest of the suspension and wheel and tire upgrades we’ve already made.
