Founded in Santa Fe Springs, California, in the late 1960s during the height of the original muscle car boom, Hotchkis Sport Suspension got its start building products that blessed GM, Mopar, and Ford performance cars with new abilities to corner and handle with stability at racetrack speeds. As the company’s reputation for building quality products grew, Hotchkis parts soon found their way into all kinds of vehicles that were not made to go fast.

    If you have a classic muscle car, you know it was built before today’s knowledge was gained about structural rigidity. Because powerful motors and grippy tires have a frame-twisting effect under high torque loads, Hotchkis offers a number of kits which contain structural braces to beef up strut towers, control arms, suspension subframes, and solid rear axles. Even if you have a late model performance car built in America, Japan, or Europe, you’ll still benefit from the added control and predictability Hotchkis kits bring to your car by keeping wheels better aligned and tires planted more flatly against the pavement.

    Adding structural reinforcements at the top of your front and rear suspension components is an easy way to beef up torsional rigidity if autocross, pro-touring, or racing events will be attempting to compress and twist the frame and axles of your vehicle. Because the tops of strut towers are under constant pressure to shift position in their mounts when wheels are pulled and yanked in every direction, braces keeping things affixed rigidly in position keeps alignment and grip at relaxed Sunday drive levels.

    The Chassis Max Handle Bar kit comes with curved bracework that locks the top of the control arms and shock towers with the same firewall structural elements that fenders bolt onto. Doing this keeps front wheels and suspension elements from shifting out of position under pressure, so steering, turn-in response, and front grip all stay predictable. Depending on vehicle application, the cross member bar included in the Chassis Max Handle Bar kit may be adjustable to account for variations in vehicle manufacturing, condition, and normal suspension sag.

    The steel tubing found on all Hotchkis sway bars and other components is formed by a Drawn Over Mandrell (DOM) process, which allows manufacturing tolerances to be as much as twenty times tighter than most hot rolling processes competitors use. Steel sections are joined by Tungsten Gas Insert (TIG) welding – a process which provides clean, even welds and a consistent level of bonding strength on all areas. As a result, irregularities which create weak points prone to metal fatigue or failure are eliminated. An outer finish of either nickel or powder coat is applied for show car looks, durability, and corrosion protection. And to ensure sway bars and other moving components stay properly positioned for the long run, Hotchkis uses polyurethane bushings that are more resilient than ones built from traditional OEM rubber.

    2015 Yukon XL SLT - Hotchkis Sway Bars
    We moved this spring to California from Minnesota. The roads in MN are straight and flat, of course. No mountains to drive around in and navigate through. After driving around for the past 3 months I was ready to do whatever it took to get rid of our family vehicle. Cruising at 75 to keep up with traffic felt chaotic and out of control, like something was wrong with our vehicle, which is huge compared to what most drive out here. The front end tipped back and forth long after rolling over elevation changes in the road, and twisting around corners while driving up and downhill was nauseating. For passengers it was worse. I spoke with a local GMC dealer and he recommended looking into a sway bar kit. I found this kit and decided a smaller investment in the truck would cost way less than trading it in for a smaller vehicle. The difference is incredible. The XL stays planted on the road, the bouncing around is gone, the tipping side to side is gone. Had I known the difference this kit made I would have purchased it and installed it off the showroom floor. While our Yukon XL will never be a sporty vehicle, I certainly feel much more confident and comfortable driving now than I did the past 3 months. I've already referred 2 friends to get the same kit. It's unreal the difference it makes. If I owned a truck, a Tahoe, or if I purchase another XL, installing this kit will be the 1st thing I do. Highly, highly recommend if you're having the same experience as me. Go read reviews on these trucks and handling is the #1 complaint about them, both the XL and the shorty. This directly addresses those issues and it truly is a different truck.
