Hi Robert
Well I guess you are right. It will either prove the car sucked, or I did, so I guess I should be nervous.

Out with the old bar and in with the new bar.

Out back I swapped in a 1.88 wall thickness 7/8th bar for the old 1.20 bar.

The car will definately be running flatter in the corners.

Holy crap I didn't realize your existing front sway bar was the same size as your gas line. Man that's small.

Real bar going on next.

A guy who really knows his way around suspension tuning said the car had way too much body roll and was overloading the outside front tire.

I guess he may have been right.

I hope so. It's a drastic change in total roll stiffness between the old springs and bars and the new ones. Plus I would imagine an even more drastic delta in shock dampening between the Sutton valved Ridetechs and my parts store Bilstien/Koni combo.
