I'm running the Progress 22mm rear. I love it and wouldn't change.

I run auto-x zts' bar, which is about 24 mm and is 3 way adjustable.

Holy ba-jesus, maybe I would change...I didn't know such a thing existed!

when they say they are adjustable, does that mean you could make that 24mm a 23mm? cause right now i'm pretty much stuck between a 22mm and a 24mm, so i think 23mm would be perfect...

Auto-X-ZTS 02-22-2010 10:36 AM

The Auto-X-ZTS RSB has been around since 2004. There are a couple dozen pretty serious autocrosser and track-day racers that use it. It is a 'natural' 24mm (actually 15/16"); it has 3 holes for endlink placement--which are heim-joints. The middle setting is the natural setting and then it can be made one setting stiffer or one setting softer--roughly +/- 1mm...or 23/24/25mm.

There is also a 7/8" version for cars with softer springs...its approximately 3/4mm +/-...or 21.5/22.25/23mm.

Very nice, where is this product purchased?

thanks for clearing that up. i was looking at the H&R 24mm adjustable, i'm guessing you can adjust it to 23mm or 25mm?
as far as your LCAs, do you guys have the reinforced ones?

The H&R rear is 24mm and not adjustable--the front is also 24mm and is 2-way adjustable. The only other adjustable rear that I am aware of is Whiteline--and it's a 22mm...a tiny bit smaller than my 7/8 (22.25mm). They use a bushing instead of a heim-joint as well (AFAIK).

wow, how could i miss that the adjustable was for the front?? lol
so you guys aren't having any trouble with a 24mm bar cracking your lcas under autocross driving?
