preload. We have used an airbag for the last eight years
that I’ve been running the car. I’m really impressed
with my new Anti Roll Bar Kit. The first pass I made with
the new set-up I was able to feel the difference in how

to contact the company and ask for extra set-up advice while
we were at the track testing. If you need help with your
