    What exactly does a sway bar do? Is the SS 32 mm sway bar sufficient or do a lot of people upgrade? Thanks guys

    This may tell you something. http://auto.howstuffworks.com/question432.htm

    The stock SS is big enough if you don't do anything else to your suspension. If you want the best and plan to do more then it's to small. If you have a Z-28 and not a SS then get bigger ones than what the SS has. If your modding then just do it up good the first time for you don't need to redo things. Alot of people with the Z-28 bars put on SS and people with SS go bigger so go figure that one out.
    If you plan on auto-crossing then make sure you check the rule book as to what class you want to compete in. Your not allowed to do certain suspension mods if you don't want to go up into more competitive classes. Also for drag racing the bigger front won't do anything other than add more weight. Surf the web, there is alot of info out there.

    the 35mm will stiffen up the front pretty good which helps with a loose car. If you have the boxed LCA's and PHB with firm poly bushings, you're already too stiff in the rear and will tend to be loose. Stick with the 19mm rear bar, unless you're just gonna go straight. 35 and 19 with Koni's at full soft on Stock SS springs works great for me...32 to 35 was a noticeable improvement.
