Ah, I think you may be right, I'll fix it. Thanks!

James Barone

I got the James Barone RSB. I researched the Hell out of which one to buy. I was leaning toward the corksport for the stiffness because it is on my daily driver.

IMHO it fits me best, and handles so much better than stock. A
I chose this one because it had closed ends, looked solid, and not many people have it.

I have the JBR stage 2 short shift kit (plate & solid base bushings), and I love it. Jamie has awesome customer service, and his prices are usually the lowest around.

I decided to go with the Tri-Point sway bar, simply because it was on sale when I was ready to purchase (I paid $190 shipped); however, it's backordered, so I'm still waiting for it to ship.

Good info! Thanks everyone. My 3 is my daily but I also autocross it occasionally. I've been leaning towards the CS but it is a bit more pricey than the RB.

I got the Tripoint RSB set in the middle hole and the tripoint endlinks. I love it and I haven't had much noise out of it but really need to find somewhere to try it out more. I just know the car goes where I want it to go now.

Another note is that the Corksport was designed for a daily driver to a hard core weekend track star. Tri-point shoots straight for the track and thats where you will get the best benefit out of it.

Anyone who who got one of these use a credit card with billing address different from shipping address? CS did not allow this the last time I tried to buy from them.

Give them a call on the phone. There might have been a glitch in the system. They have great customer service!
