Hotchkis TVS stage II

Is anyone running the Hotchkis TVS stage II supension? I would be eager to hear what you thought about it. I want a great suspension but I don't want to remove shock towers. Ive always wondered down the road say 15 years and I need to replace a ball joint/shock and the company has gone out of business or no longer offer the same components?

No experience with the Hotchkis, but I've installed and driven a car equipped with Street or Track suspension and can vouch for how amazing their suspension is.
Grabber70Mach and DrHawkeye like this.

Shaun at SorT has great stuff. John at ORP makes great stock type parts. You cant lose with either one.

I have no experience with the system in question, but I will echo the two previous posts.

Are there any VMF vendors that support Hotchkis that offer a member discount I wonder?

Yuk. At least they have a cross-brace in their upper arm now.
Not a Hotchkis fan though. There's a lot wrong about those pieces.

You've missed a few manufacturers. Two more that don't require shock tower
removal are Total Control and Global West. There are others as well....
