Dinan seems to make the front bar to have, appears to be adjustable and hollow (nice weight savings), but only sold in sets (front & rear) so more $$. Don't really need a nice rear bar sitting in my garage, so right now leaning toward the H&R unit. Any other applications out there?

Looking forward to just doing a sway bar, wheels, tires, whatever alignment possible, and enjoy the pleasure of limited mods. (coming from Street Mod class).

Thanks for any feedback / suggestions!
I went with the Hotchkis bar because the Dinan was on backordered at the time. Specs are "the same" as the Dinan, both bars. Less than $500 for the set, no endlinks though. After ordering the adjustable endlinks, I saved maybe a couple hundred bucks. OEM links were too long to use on the stiffer settings.

I'm still working out setup, but my car continues to be a bit too pushy right now - on 6/7 full stiff. The Hotchkis bar may actually be a bit stiffer than the Dinan, or it's a driver issue I need to work through.

Look to do tires when you do the bar or you may be very frustrated.
