Sway bar group buy?

Anyone interested in a 3rd Speedbuilt group buy? I missed the 1st and the 2nd group buy and wonder if there is anyone else out there who would want this? If so I'll contact them and also get some GA owners to join in.

If not .... someone please sell me their rear sway bar... if you are not autocrossing or going to the track you probably don't need it

Moderator edit -

Have at it guys:

Speedbuilt Sway Bar Pre-Order for 1999-2005 Grand Am and Alero

Last group buy was $144 for 1 and $288 for 2. I'll email PFYC and MP racing now to see if they are willing to do it.

They are going to want all of it up front before they do anything. They got hosed the last time because of non payment. You will need 20 orders for each bar and a way to hold everyone's cash since they will want a lump payment when they place the order. It's not gonna happen. Ill sell you mine for $500. lol.

That sounds impossible now .

Just saw a picture of them... are the front and rear exactly the same shape and size except for the thickness? Anyone who has both should know.

I don't think they are. You could check with your stock front and hold it up to the rear and see.

Okay good news... Mark from MP is willing to help if we can get enough people interested. Please post here if you are interested and I will post this on the GA forum too:

Quote:
I would be glad to help with this however my main interest is to make it
so that there will be bars available for the whole community as a result
of a group buy. We have already talked to Addco and they dont have the
ability to make such for us. They did give us contact info for Eibach,
Hotchkis and a few other potential manufacturers. As for having
Speedbuilt make them... this seems near impossible due to the only
contact for them being PFYC and PFYC already told us the only way they
would do it is if we have 20 of each paid for up front. Addco was going
to just make 10 of each at their own cost and sell them through us (MP
Racing) but obviously that did not work out due to them not being able
to work out the bends properly with their equipment.

If you can drum up enough interest in this (10-15 people with money in
hand) I will gladly start making contact with the afore mentioned
companies and see what we can work out.

Please keep me up to date about this and I will do everything possible
to make this happen.


Regards,

Mark Pettersen
Owner of MP Racing
