so what's the consensus on swaybars? brands etc.... i'll take any feedback. seeing a bit of sliding rather than the car biting in some tight corners. now i realize it could just be tire grip and I've gotten to the end of what the street tires will provide. thanks

It's all a compromise. Balance the car for when you push it most often. Adjustable bars are your friend

I added Steeda Sways,I think the rear sway was the biggest difference but
adding new sways,with tighter shocks and all these little items add up to a better handling car

i do not think brands vary that much and they all copy each other here and there

already have their struts and shocks and their progressive springs. also did the subframe braces, lat links, front g brace, irs bushings.....and jacking rails. i mean it'll hugh side light an off-road vehicle on certain inclines, also had an alignment done with some specs that are more than stock setup to help get it to bite in corners. but without having sway bars i didn't know how the will help....

If you're sliding, its probably tires. Swaybars help with transitional response for fast switchbacks or high speed lane changes. They won't really add grip, that's the tire's job.

Yeah its tires. And in most cases stiffer sway bars reduce ultimate grip levels.

well hell, definitely feel flat so not sure sway bars are needed just yet, maybe for track days but on tight scca events it's more sliding. think it's time for some road race/autocross event tires. too 888r's or maybe even some cup2's.......

Anyone out there running without a rear sway bar? I've heard some people do and the rear end won't step out on you as much. Trying to decide if I want to try it or not.
