Can you explain removing the front? sway bar? I have heard this too, but I still have mine on.

It is a weight reduction/weight transfer thing. Taking off 40lbs of steel helps. And decoupling the bar from the a-arms/struts can free up some motion on the hit.

This car is a pig.

I have a Hotchkis front bar; its huge but hollow so it doesn't weigh much

Are you suggesting that I don't declare the modifications on my cars to my multiple insurance companies?

For example:

When the TBSS was completed in 2016 my insurance company was given a comprehensive appraisal of its components and replacement value.

Hagerty knows everything about the classics. I couldn't have substantial agreed value policies without it being done.

The Hellcat really is stock as nothing has been done to increase the power (I like my warranty). Also they know it had 717hp when insuring me. If the suspension controller fails the system defaults - the wheels don't fall off or cause spontaneous combustion. That is easily proven with the factory service manual. So, that is a weak argument if anyone tried to make it... much less knew where to look. ;)

Hell, the fabricated steel bumper they put on my wife's Colorado after it was rear ended was paid for by our insurance company. Lower cost than a stock replacement, they were happy.

Also, I am not a talentless sh*t with a fart-cannon equipped BRZ. I am middle-aged with a perfect driving record. We good?

I had a story come across my news feed about how someone had their insurance claim denied due to some appraiser noticing a non-stock exhaust modification.

It was only a P.S.A. to alert the members that are following this thread that maybe certain companies are implementing such policies.

I didn't make any claims about your disclosure or lack there of as I'm not your agent nor is it any of my concern.

It was just information. Given your response, I'll refrain from providing anything that might be relevant in the future.

My bad.

You know I was supporting your position, right?
I am always goofing around here. It wasn't meant to be taken as hostile... I used a Lucille Ball gif FFS. ;)

Full disclosure is very important. Young people play games like that and get burned.
