    i've had both. the lakewood square tubing is smaller is diameter than the bushing. the hotchkis is larger. so, the hotchkis would not bend as easily. i've been 1.76 60ft on the lakewood.

    Either would be a great improvement over stock, I just installed Lakewood LCAs in the rear along with their adjustable panhard bar, and the difference is unbelievable. Do whatever you can to get rid of the U-shaped factory stamped steel pieces.

    Ive got lakewoods and I like them. The only issue is that the way my edelbrock sfc's are designed, I cant grease the forward bushing with out taking the bolt out and letting it drop.
