Hotchkis, but you have to order both front and rear at the same time.
I have them and they kick ass with the 2/4 drop...holy shit it handles well :rocking:

I've also heard of Hellwig which is alot cheaper, but every guy I talked to on various forums said they keep coming loose or something and they have to keep retorquing the bolts and regreasing them because they squeek.

I've also heard of guys with the Hotchkis sways getting squeeky, but not me :rocking:

I got my set used for $400 shipped.
Brand new you're looking at $475-up...not including shipping.
Yea I know, they're expensive, but you get what you pay for I always believed. I didn't want to go the cheap route.
These things are fuckin HEAVY too...so shipping will be a bitch I'm sure..
Any truck website that sells suspension parts will have them.

mine is a Hotchkis. I really don't know about the differences in the 99-02 vs. the 03-04's I would assume the rear is the same. I paid 550 for the complete set front and rear and would take $300 for it.

if you are low...(and red) and you don't already run one, they really do make a hell of a difference.

No wait..your actually a 4X4 huh? you already have one...

I had Hellwig bars on the front and rear of my 95, and I never had a problem with the bolts coming loose or squeaking. If he just wants the rear, and wants to do it cheap, Hellwig would be OK, I got mine for like $120. To me, Stillen has always been over priced.

Ultimately, I would suggest the matched set of Hotchkis bars, that will be one of my next mods.
