Wow so no one has any information about either of these sway bars?
Then does anyone know of any sway bar sets that are worth a hoot taht while on sale are close to the 425$.. Front and rear?
I already have Eibach lower springs, BMR Upper and Lower control arms and running Koni orange shocks.. Front /Back Sway bar and rear control arm reallocation are really all I have left I could do that I know of. Its a daily driver but want to take out as much of the roll I can. I live in Tennessee so many of the roads have twists and turns.
Getting ready to get rear axle tubes welded due to the Supercharger just to be safe.. I'm not a racer but feel like I'm running out of performance things to do to the car that I can justify! LOL

Well the purpose of a sway bar is to tune out oversteer / understeer on a track ... if you want one just because you want one, its hard for us to really make a recommendation.

Essentially though, a sway bar just increases the spring rate when turning, so anything better than stock will "help." Understand though, if your shocks / struts / sway bars aren't set up properly you could introduce a fair bit of over or understeer depending on how you do it.

I typically find when running a square set up that RWD cars prefer a little more front bar when cornering (or at least that I prefer a little more front bar with how i set my suspension up). So, im not going to tell you what to get, i'm going to make you do some homework based on my suggestions here, but i would either just get a front bar and set it on a mild or low setting (probably the easiest to adjust and live with) or if you want front and rear bars, just make sure the front is set stiffer than the rear (more involving, less potential for improvement if you're not going to actually track and mess with it).

Just picked up a set of GT500 sway bars my self for $130 front and rear. One of the last things needed in mine. The fronts are the same diameter as the GT just a thicker material. The rears how ever are larger in diameter. The fronts are also 3 way adjustable.
