Thicker adjustable sway bars than stock GT's?

Hi Guys,

Which thicker adjustable sway bars do you prefer that are bigger than the stock '10-'14 GT sway bars?

Eibach the rear sway bar bushing can be replace very easy and the bar can be lower out of the way with out removing it from the car.

The guys at BMR were looking at the Eibach rear sway bar when I took my car there, They pointed features that there bar didn't have LOL.

BMR or the Ford Racing Sway bars. The Eibach ones are hollow.

I bought some NIB Eibach sways for a 2008 GT500 from a friend, and installed them on my 2011 GT. I already had the Ford Racing adj shocks and springs, so it really firmed things up. I also have Steeda upper & lower arms. No complaints here! Just waiting for my BMR relocation brackets to arrive...

BMR lists their front sway bar as hollow on their site.

BMR will tell you first hand to not worry about the sways, this is one of the reasons they haven't built a 2011+ specific set yet. I've sat down with Kelly (I sell their product) at great lengths about this. There isn't a want on these yet that's big enough to justify the initial cost of production. Also, on the street you will not notice the benefit of sways. OP are you running your stock wheels and tires? If not what tires are you running? On the street your tires will give out before you will even notice the benefit of aftermarket sways..... or even the stock ones. The koni STR.t's are a great "entry-level" damper set, but if you plan on corner carving you will notice less body roll with a set of adj. dampers than sways. The STR.t's compare to Koni yellows at its softest setting. Getting stiffer sways with soft dampers won't benefit you any.

The front BMR swaybar is hollow but let me tell you it is stiff and I have no body roll, I also talked to kelly and the rear swaybar isnt all that important but the front is, dont let the fact that its hollow scare you away, I had roush's swaybar on before the BMR and the roush is solid and HEAVY!!! the BMR is around 25lbs lighter than the solid one and out performs them...BMR's stuff is tested long before they sell it to us and its very good quality, I have the lightweight lower front control arms and those were 11lbs lighter than stock and handle amazing....

That is why I did not consider BMR, no specs for 2011 +
I have 275/40R19 michelin ss in the back and planing to replace the front ones also.
Ihave the koni strt and Steeda sport springs. Great set up
