Addco vs SRT swaybars. Which would you choose and why?

So my 2008 laredo has over 87,000 miles on it,and once the weather gets a little warmer, I`m going to upgrade the suspension. I plan to install Bilstein 4600 shocks and struts, and the Eibach Pro -kit spring set. I also want to replace the existing sway bars. I was planning on purchasing the SRT sway bars, but it was mentioned in a conversation to me about using the Addco sway bars instead.

So what would you recommend, and why? Addco vs SRT sway bars?

Over the summer I had bilstein 5100's and front/rear srt8 sway bars put on. I went with the srt's because of past fitment issues with addco. Had a rear addco sway bar on my 99 4.7 and it didn't fit right. They may have improved more now I don't know. The addco's at least the rear is thicker than the SRT sway bar.

I have the Addco's and am happy with the ride and handling. However, I had fitment issues, especially the front bar. Plus lots of squeaking. I had to modify the bushings, add grease fittings to the frame brackets. If I had to do it all over again, I would go with factory SRT sways for less hassle.
