    no you're good... if you intend to keep it stock.
    but assuming one would start builing it up, enigine, cam, heads, etc etc...
    you go from back to front, suspension, rearend bolt, gears, exhaust, then heads and cam, blower, N20 etc...

    Sway bars do alot for handling. They are definitely worth their price. They cut body roll down and give more grip on corners.

    lol... i dont know if im misunderstanding something or not. dont cars orignally COME with sway bars, and u replace them with aftermarket ones to increase handling? if so, then how do i know if this sway bar is a stock sway bar or not.
    if its stock, then how would it improve anything? someone please teach me

    I doubt TSS would order a stock one. most prob a good upgrade sway bar...
    come to think of it, not sure that LS1s have a sway bar? not sure... but most prob it is an upgrade one and better handling.

    All f-body's have sway bars, but that is a larger one than stock. You can measure the diameter of your sway bar to see the size you have now. I found this how to.

    How to measure your Sway Bar Diameter -
    Use a common adjustable wrench to easily find the diameter of your original equipment sway bar. Simply open the jaws of the wrench until it fits snugly over the sway bar. Then remove the wrench and measure the gap between the jaws. You may also use an open end wrench that just fits.. You now know the diameter of your sway bar. Your measurement should be as ACURAte as possible, coming within 1/16".
