Hey fellas,
I just got off the phone with a person at Hotchkis and I'll hopefully see them next week to see if they can do anything for our AWD platform. They will be looking to see if we can make the springs and sway bar system fit. Hopefully they can work something out. I'll keep everyone posted as to the results.

OK first round....
I went there and the staff blew me away with their professionalism. I only expected a worker to throw on springs to see if they fit and they did much more. They measured, weighed and inspected clearance levels. By the way my AWD came in at 4267 pounds yikes!
After all was done they tried a few springs and it's a no go with their stock. My car was lowered to the point where the front bumper was almost to the ground. I was told that they will have to prototype stiffer springs to make it work. They will be ordering some parts and then be giving me a call again to fit the new parts.
Round two to come hopefully soon.

Be sure to have them explore putting the superb Hotchkis Sport Anti-sway bars on, Bruce. There are none better, and your cars handling manners will go way up.

Remember that the KW V2 coilovers are available for your AWD at the same GB price as for the RWD vehicles if you want the ultimate in adjustability, ride, and performance.

Thanks for the info but I forgot to mention they said it's a no go for the sway bars. The front end is completely different and not worth it to them to do. It's pointless to do the back end as well if the fronts aren't going to be touched.
