Just curious. Got mine today and I was expecting polished, but got flat black.
Not that it's a big deal, just curious I suppose.

black
I would sand inside of the front bushings and lube them up real good or you will get squeeking sounds.

Re: What color are your autotech sways? (sntx)

autotech is black, because unlike nospeed and their "race" red, the bars actually function in synchronization with the car

Re: What color are your autotech sways? (1fastdub)

autotech bars are BLACK. autotech bars sold by abd are SILVER. if you buy an autotech bar, you will get BLACK. if you buy an abd bar, you will get an autotech bar PAINTED SILVER. i don't know of a company that sells a polished bar.
the autotech bar is no bolted down rather it is allowed to slide inside of the bushings. the bar can move with the car while still keeping the rear end tight. a good amount of moly grease will keep the squeeks away. though, you can develop squeeks in other areas due to the increased rigidity that the bar provides.
