Question Sway Bar Links v. Rear Sway Upgrade

How much of a difference do the BWoody links make? (moderate to high speed cornering, crosswind resistance, etc.)

Is it a more noticeable upgrade compared to replacing the rear sway bar?

-and I know nothing is going to make it handle like a Ferrari California but if I can make it flatter and tighter, its a win.

Re: Sway Bar Links v. Rear Sway Upgrade

you want the rear SRT sway bar. It will make a huge difference IMHO. I had the endlinks on my 13' SRT and I couldn't tell one bit of difference. Plus Ive seen one set FAIL on an SRT.

Re: Sway Bar Links v. Rear Sway Upgrade

Out of curiosity how much thicker and heavier is the SRT bar?

I believe I read that its 2mm. As for weight, I don't know.

Re: Sway Bar Links v. Rear Sway Upgrade

So do you need to upgrade the links with the front and rear SRT bars or are you good to go with the current ones?

The rear SRT links are shorter than the standard links
