Wink The Hotchkiss

My Hotchkiss is not a lift kit. It is an upgrade to the stock suspension - gives a much more stable ride at highway speeds and sways less in corners. It eliminates the rocking, swaying, seasick wagon feeling.

Yes, I know what it does, but it is the same bend as the stock bar? the rear swaybar is the lowest point on the Trailblazer and I was wondering if the aftermarket bars have any clearance differences...

New bar - same fit

Both the Hotchkis bar and the Maxx links fit into the same spaces they just had a heavy-duty look and feel compared to the stock units. No clearance issues; they installed in about an hour.

I've replaced my tires, my shocks and my springs. Each one made a huge improvement in my trucks handling. But its still a little "bouncy". The way you guys describe this swaybar kit and bushing kit, it sounds like it's EXACTLY what I need.

But here's my question:

Should I (can I) replace the trailing arm bushings too?
What about that cross piece in the rear whose name I always forget.. the giant Z bar?

Ive hated the body roll on mine since I got it...

I've changed sway bars on other vehicles and it changes them completely.

I used Hellwig on my Trucks but they dont seem to be making a bar for Envoys any more.

Going to have to do new tires and wheels really soon. May just go ahead and swap the bar out while I'm under there.

Thanks for your info.
