    I do think that the red tails look great on most colors but I felt that on DGM the gunsmoke tails would compliment it best and I don't regret my decision.

    I have an SWP on order! I was between SWP and DGM and really made a last minute decision. Yours looks great though! I'm going to be throwing on Magnaflow CBE, 20% tint and those red tails too.

    sways comparison

    I was comparing eibach sways to solid and checking the size of solids that would match tubes.
    This is what I got when guy at eibach told me the wall thickness of tube.

    It shows that they are lighter. Only thing that I would like to know, since they recommended the same size sways f/r for 2008+, what difference it makes with stiffer rear sway. Cose rear shows 21.41mm for solid and front is 24.61mm.

    Stiffness of the bar can be adjusted & denotes distance of the mounting hole from the D bracket bushing.On adjustable sway bars this distance can be changed.The more the distance of the mounting point from the D bracket,the softer the set up & vice versa.

    I know that and I will look at proportion off torques on the bar depending on distance from the axis, D-bracket.
