    Best Sway Bars

    What sway bars are the best . I want to upgrade my sway bars . Ive been looking at alot of differnt brands . I think I have it down to 2 . Let me know what you guys think . Im going to include a link to a page that compairs the two of them side by side . I have few Spohn parts on my car now , Adj P H bar , LCA , SFC . The other company is Eibach . I figured they make the springs on my car ( 2002 SS ) so it should work well with it The Eibach sway bars are 35mm 25m . Spohn's are 32mm 22mm , but the Spohn's are made out of chrome moly ... Thanks for the feedback. Here is a link .

    most swaybars are good in quality.
    It's just a matter of chosing the right size.
    As for best, try asking what is the best cam in the engine section... same thing can be said about springs.
    Having said that, the sway bars will dictate the balance of your car based on the springs you have.

    So, what spring rates you gonna have in your car before you install the swaybars ?
    swaybars is not one of those things that bigger is better... it's all about balance.
    Since you mention Eibach springs, chances are you are talking about the Prokits.
    The prokits work well with the 35/21 and 35/19 combo.
    Going too stiff in the rear will make the rear end very tail happy, and will actually hinder your cornering abilities.

    I run a Hotchkis 36.5 front with a Spohn 22 rear. The combination works great.

    With the bars I listed there will be no sway in the car at all. It will corner flat.

    The Spohn's seem to do real well with the Eibach pro-kit. I feel like the car has a nice balance at the limits.

    I did however switch out to the Edelbrock IAS spring and shock combo and that killed the handling. So I'll be going back to the Eibach and SLP Bilsteins setup.

    The Hotchkis front bar is hollow and therefore lighter than the Spohn one with similar performance. Not cheap tho.

    Depends on what you want to do.

    Stock springs? Shocks?

    Strano hollow bars are light close to the stock bar...
    ST bar is good too but HEAVY..30 pounds.
