    Upgraded sway bars today, strut brace last weekend.

    Holy hell did that make a difference. I bought the Petty's​ garage front and rear. And razors edge strut brace.
    Last weekend I installed the strut brace. I wanted to be able to tell if it actually made a difference. Handling: I don't really think so. Going over speed humps it felt more solid. It didn't do the normal flex, it felt like I was hitting harder. So yes more stuff over all.
    This weekend sway bars. Front bar is the 35mm rear I believe was 22. Front was cake to put in. Maybe a half hour of work on jack stands. Rear, total pain but manageable with nothing more than hand tools.
    Handling now is amazing. Level corners much more fun. My car isnt a rocket. It's my daily, but living where I live I'm more interested in a good cruise than breaking the bank with tires (which I would, love that smell.)
    Very worth the 600 bucks plus shipping spent! Don't Tell the lady I share the bed with it was that much.

    Good to hear - do you get any straight line traction help with those? Or is it just to help out with cornering?

    Petty bars are 1mm larger than the Hellcats in front and the same in the rear. They're also adjustable. I put them on my 05 Magnum RT last year. I have only had them on the middle hole so far and they're great. Went from a floaty boat to a nice corner carver with the addition of OEM take off 2015 Charger R/T 20" wheels/tires. Straight line traction at stock height didn't seem to change with the bars for me. Lowering it killed traction since now I have negative camber and I haven't found a good rear solution yet.

    GETGONE, still liking the Petty sway bars?

    I went to Petty's Garage website. Apparently they do not offer suspension parts for my 2006 Magnum RT?? Even though I am 99% certain the sway bars are very universal (09-14 Challenger/06-11 Charger/05-08 Magnum/04-11 300C). I did find this Part Number (PG-SB-005-KIT) which is related to a 2006/Chrysler/300/SRT8.

    Does that part number sound familiar? Thanks!

    Run2jeepn,Those are among my top 3 choices. Pettys, Pedders, Progress Group. All good bars!But the Pettys are blue, like my Magnum and they're the least expensive for basically the same bar (adjustible and diameter).

    This is what I ordered back in 2016 per the email they sent me:
    Item: Petty's Garage Adjustable Sway Bar Kit (23905543)
    But looks like they revised part numbers or something but what you have looks correct when I went to their web site.
