    Hotchkis and PST are the same design or at least REALLY close. I have the Hotchkis and they worked great.

      I have a set of Bill's (Reilly Motor Sports) struts and upper control arms on my '65. Absolutely great products.

        I installed the Hotchkis adjustables in my '69. Built very well and installation was a breeze.

            Thanks Jim,
            You "beat me to the punch"
            I have the catalog here in front of me, page 29 Chrysler section and I was just going to comment on these.
            I'm ordering a set for my 63 Maxie build-up.
            The Hotchkiss is $339, finished in a nickel powdercoat finish
            the PST is $279, powdercoated in black.
            That is a savings of $60.00
            Both have 5/8" Rod Ends and 7/8" Tubing. Both boast "TIG" weld.
            I'm always into saving $$

              PST and Hotchkis have the same subframe connectors also.

              I forgot, a 10% discount for being a FBBO member, just check the vendor section and you'll see it.

              One big difference I can tell on the PST vs. Hotchkis, the Hotchkis have a threaded stud (secured by a lock nut) that travel through the LCA. Looks like the PST is a hollow tube on the end that an allen bolt and star washer secure to the LCA. Other than that, look real similar.

              Ordered my strut rods from PST today. Got a call back, turns out they have a couple sets of Hotchkis left over and would let me have a pair for same price as their new product. Still got the 10% discount. Could be a good deal for someone else also if you get at it soon......
