Re: which srt sway bar makes more of a difference? front or back

Rear bar will keep ass end in line and help her feel like shes holds corner better. Really the front is just as important and significant but you wont notice it persay because of how much weight is up front and the nature of the vehicle through a turn and physics of course lol.

Id say def get BOTH as thats the best as far as handling unless you go to an even thick Addco but many said those bushing had issues. Im thinking of upping to Addcos and having some custom urethane bushing made so well see :/

Get the bwoody sway links too Sway bars are only as effective as weakest link which are links (paper thin lol) Grab those 7/8" fatty bwoody and the ride will REALLY feel solid, promise

Re: which srt sway bar makes more of a difference? front or back

Definitely the rear but both is better. I wanted the thickest bars out there because of my lift so I went with an Addco bar in the rear. However, I just went with the SRT8 front bar because I wasn't happy with how the Addco bar fit a few years ago. They may have changed it since then though. My WK handles and rides better now with a 4" lift and 32"s than it did stock lol

Once you have had the rear of the vehicle come around during an agressive corner and cleaned the brown spots from your jockey shorts, you will then understand. Get the rear first for sure.
My bad, I meant to write 'understeer'...if you read what I was saying, it makes sense.

the end links from BWoody make a difference too.

Agreed, understeer with just the rear srt bar is totally safe, but oversteer is very dangerous on public roads, particluarly on wet roads.
NAscar lingo; push = understeer
loose = oversteer

Re: which srt sway bar makes more of a difference? front or back

could you run addco bars with bwoody endlinks?
my plan is for f/r addco bars, new bushings, and endlinks but wasn't quite sure which ones
