Re: SRT8 swaybars

I had both front and rear srt sway bars and loved then, but now I have addco sways. Way more bigger and stiffer. SRT's are good to start off with though and you'll feel then difference.

Re: SRT8 swaybars

Any WK set up for offroad is going do really well on road. The only difference maker would probably be tires.

Re: SRT8 swaybars

For street performance, you'll want the Addco's. The SRT bars are a step in the right direction but i personally didn't notice much difference in the front. The rear was more noticeable but i do regret spending the money on the front one,2nd time around i would have done the Addco's. You should be aware though that some people have noted fitment issues with the Addco's, perhaps they have that sorted out by now and Socal has the most recent set put on, that i know of, so he may be able to commment better.

Re: SRT8 swaybars

I had just the rear SRT bar for about 10k, and now added the front one. The understeeer is greatly reduced veruss the SRT rear bar alone, and the ride is more level. I would get both. Also make sure to buy new bushings, as they cost little more, and I have seen several on here reusing the old stock front ones. I Would get OEM and stay away from the blue Moog bushings, as they seem to wear out very quickly. I had similar problems with Moog blue bushings going bad in short order on another car.
