Sway bars - Hotchkis vs Eibach

Hey all - want your opinions on these two products. Hotchkis has had their product out awhile, and so I'm sure some of you can comment on that. I see that Eibach recently brought theirs to market, but haven't seen any comments.

Come on now people, don't let me down! I'd really like to hear from some people who did this mod please.

Sway bars

I have installed front and rear Hotchkis sway bars (with Eibach coils and Koni springs), this totally eliminate the understeer and it feels like a totally new car. However the Hotchkis sawy bars are a pain to install both at the front and at the rear.

It seems that the price for mods on new cars seem to be really big pain ones.

Excuse my lack of knowledge but when u say Eibach Coils and Koni Springs I was assuming you were talking about the coil springs of the suspension but u listed to different companies completely.
