That's not too bad, considering I've now waited 5 weeks for my exhaust.... >.>
I'll probably definitely get the Progress when the time comes.

Appreciate noticing the detail.
Yeah, the CS didn't mention anywhere that they come with grease. I assumed they do, would be idiotic not to. Updated the list. Thank you

The brackets look shoddy, and I honestly couldn't see myself pay that much for a 1mm difference to OEM.

It would definitely not be something on my radar.

UR makes a loooot of easy weld and bend parts for just about every car.
They aren't high quality, but they do produce quantity.

For a product that already exists with a better name? I'd go with the better name.

For a product only they seem to supply? Why not (depending what it is). They mostly just make braces from what I've seen, that may not be great but "get the job done" for people interested.

But I'll still stand by the 'if a better name makes it, go for the better name'

I'm from Australia so the only option I have is to wait till Whiteline make a swaybar for the Gen3, I could buy from Corksport but I'm not keen on paying almost the same amount for shipping and exchange rates :P

Maybe you should unclude the shipping rates, like next to the price, for each of these RSB's. For instance, the JBR and Progress bars can be had with free shipping, whereas I just went to order the CorkSport RSB and their site only had two option: customer pickup, and shipping via USPS for: $100.30 !! Dealbreaker for me. I'm going to contact them and see if there are any other options, otherwise I think I'll just get the Progress Technogy RSB for $168.96 with free shipping!

Prices and shipping vary by venders
It just makes it easier to have MSRP cost.
That way you can shop on your own based on the original price

I think CorkSport RSB shipping was like $30 for me.

Understood. BTW, I did end up getting mine shipped for < $30.00 ... somehow the wrong state was selected for me either their website had an issue or it was me. probably me. My apologies to CorkSport!

Yeah, I just checked. Its like $21 shipped to me.
Just curious, after seeing the price and specs, why still choose the CorkSport over the progress?
Not that there's anything wrong with that choice, they're both great brands, but just wondering your reasoning behind your choice.

Based on my understanding, Progress measures its numbers differently than JB and CS.

Progress has measured its stiffness as X% as stiff as stock.
JB and CS has measured their stiffness as X% stiffer than stock.

So for Progress, 231% as stiff as stock actually means 131% stiffer than stock and 303% as stiff as stock actually means 203% stiffer than stock.

For James Barone, 155% stiffer than stock actually means 255% as stiff as stock and for Corksport, 130% stiffer than stock actually means 230% as stiff as stock.

Therefore for both JB and CS, respectively, JB is stock multiplied by 2.55 and 3.65, and CS is stock multiplied by 2.3 and 3.2.

Progress's numbers are good, and I can't speak to Racing beat because it's not listed on its website.

But for JB, my understanding is that the numbers should be:

867 lb./in. for less stiff
1241 lb./in. for more stiff

And CS should be:

794 lb./in. for less stiff
1104 lb./in. for more stiff

These numbers make sense to me based on Progress's listing of:

772 lb./in.
1015 lb./in.

The numbers do not vary as wildly among the different brands now.
