Hey guys, I contacted addco and thru a lot of persistence, they have agreed to make me a set of Starion Sway bars, made to order, that were discontinued years ago. They will mAke me one set, the prices for one set is $350 for front, and $200ish for rear. More orders we get, price goes down substantially.

THIS VERY WELL MAY BE THE LAST OPPORTUNITY to purchase brand new Starion Sway bars, nobody still makes these. They are doing this run, as many as we can get, and then that's it.

Contact me BY PHONE ONLY to reserve a spot, I dont check here enough.

PAYMENT WILL BE DUE BY NEXT FRIDAY AT THE LATEST, AFTER I HAVE A COUNT AND CAN GET AN ACCURATE QUOTE...

Front bar 1 inch, rear bar 7/8 includes all bushing, bolt in fit 86-90 Starion

NOBODY makes or has any bars in stock for our cars. ADDCO has agreed to revive them from the discontinued status for me for just this ONE order. Paid order will need to be submitted by 7/13. If you comment you're in, you are giving your word that you will pay by 7/13 at the LATEST. He is calling me back Monday afternoon so I can give number and get quote.

Thanks

You better order up as many replacement bushings as you can. We no longer make replacements for aftermarket sway bars. Not enough demand.

This was tempting. But just too short notice & too few details for me to jump.Cool that someone made the effort though.

Guess the following statement in the original post didnt work out

"More orders we get, price goes down substantially."

At least we now know it's a possibility. OP says last run, but money talks . If someone like TEP or Mookeh ordered 20 sets ADDCO might listen. Maybe?
My pockets are not deep enough or I'd order ten sets myself & sell over time.

I'm currently waiting for my set of sway bars. The price I paid was $407USD for front and rear and hardware, but waiting for shipping price still. Hopeful to receive and install them one day.

They came to 395 per set. I sold the mmajority thru Facebook. This was a deal of a lifetime essentially, never gonna make these again. It took a LOT of convincing on my part tonumber getc addco to entertain the idea. Price went from 550 to $395.
