You will have to import yourself or maybe a specialist place will do it for you. The freight will be the killer at the moment, US to Aus rates are sky high due to high demand.

Better off trying someone like whiteline etc here in OZ

I agree with MB. With the aussie dollar falling against the USD, and with the cost of freight, you'd be financially better off going with an aussie made swaybar.

im researching the hotchkis stuff atm too

i got some shipping prices, i have them on my work email

ill post them up tommorrow

if you are serious about buying them, maybe we should look into splitting the shipping cost......though we gotta work out how much itll cost to go QLD to VIC

ill prob go the springs + sways

the hotchkis have recieved raved reviews in the US

I too have heard great things about the hotchkis sways. They were used on the project 1.0G 350z, on their middle-setting. They were part of a combination of sways, wider wheels/street tires, and a different LSD.

Thanks guys.

I was swayed (smart a...!) by the reports on Hotchkiss, although I have used Whiteline in the past and found them to be good.

TPIACE, I will wait to hear from you idc as I am happy with a joint import and then sort it out from there. I will be away until Tuesday (without internet access as well), so will get back to you then.

Thanks and cheers

guys seriously if theres 4 of us now, we should be able to get cheaper prices on the parts, and the shipping price will look very good

im happy to order these at the end of the month, should give us time to shop around and see what vendor comes back with the cheapest price

but before i start emailing vendors, who is 100% in to purchase at end of the month?

since theres so many of us now

we might as well just split the packages up into individual states, so a melb parcel, syd parcel, etc

but we'll all buy from the same vendor to get a discount on the actual parts

Guys,

also look into the local product, whiteline, I think you should also be able to approach them or one of their resellers to do a group buy.

Also, check the specs of the whiteline against the hotchkis and if my memory serves me correct there is not too much difference in the % increase rates. I went down this path a long time ago (and am getting old too) but the whiteline sways worked out at least $250 cheaper than importing the Hotchkis.

With that in mind you are also supporting an Aussie company.

cheers
