I just placed my order for both bars. John said we had over the number needed, so are good to go and they will be produced.

I'm waiting for a shipping quote to my overseas location - apparently the front bars will be ready quickly, but they are waiting for material for the rears which will mean a 3-4 week wait.

The group buy officially ended today. Thank you to everybody who participated, looks like we exceeded the min. order requirement for both the front and the rear bars. As @gwg indicated, the front bars are already in production but the rears will take a bit longer.

I spoke to John on Friday...…….he took my order and was quite professional and knowledgeable. We also discussed the selection of sway bar sizing and stiffness in relation to applications. There's a fair amount of art along with science.


Our application SHOULD result in a car with considerably less understeer along with less body roll.

RLT61:
Thank you for all the efforts in making this happen


Best regards
Mike

Received the front sway bar today. Looks good and came with all the necessary hardware.

I initially had difficulties placing an order...….I finally contacted John on 2/8/19 who seemed very helpful.

A few days later, John left me a message concerning a problem with my credit card number. I returned his call and left a message...….10 days later nothing.

I've tried calling Addco several times and John must be very busy/fired or just plain apathetic.


What a way to run a company...…….very disappointing consumer service

UPDATE: I notified them, and they updated the prices to the Group Buy Discount Price.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just wanted to confirm on the price. I believe from the group buy online prices were as per:
-Front sway bar Part number: 2058 Dia 1 1/8” Price: $138.94 (Discounted price)
-Rear sway bar Part number: 2043 Dia 7/8” Price: $119.42 (Discounted Price)
Shipping is extra.

I just made my order on 2/21. from the invoice I received the price is:
02-058-09 $235.66
02-043-03 $203.41

Is that price differential form the cost of shipping and or hardware kit? Seems much higher? Should I cancel?

The group buy ended 2/11/19. Addco extended a special price for the group buy based on a min order qty of 10 pieces per part number. This price included the hardware kit for the front bar, but did not include shipping.

Mike,
sorry to hear about all the problems you’re having with placing the order.
