    Hollow sway bars are more efficient in all respects. Less mass and for a given diameter, deliver 95+% of the same torsional resistance as a solid metal unit. In simple terms, the majority of work resisting twist is performed by the outer periphery (drops off exponentially to zero at centerline).

    Any updates (how do you like them) on the Progress Sway bars?

    I'm thinking about these sway bars in my suspension overhaul. Also, do you know if Pedders makes these sway bars for Progress Group? It's possible I saw this info somewhere in the forums.

    Progress states this on their website... "Progress Sway Bars are cold-formed in-house using our precision bending equipment. Both laser-cut and CNC bar ends are MIG welded in place using a precise fixture for an exact fit."
    It's confusing if Pedders makes them.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! But I was actually referring to Pedders brand of sway bars. They are both 35mm-hollow and 22mm-solid
    with 3 points of adjustment. I'll look at Pettys too, the blue color is a nice touch.

    Yea... I keep editing this.

    So, 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 for this year/ chassis are universal. Per Progress Group website (Front #62.0636) - (09-14 Challenger/06-11 Charger/05-08 Magnum/04-11 300C).

    Why all this effort, because I think I want the blue Pettys. :D And the sway bars (PG-SB-005-KIT) are less expensive than Progress Groups sway bars, even though they are the same.

    Progress Makes Pedders and Petty's Bars. They are all the same, just different colors. CarID and fastHemi have Progress bars going for $340 for the set.
