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

not to hijack the thread, but I currently have a front sway bar but looking to get the best bang for the buck when it comes time for installation - does it make sense to wait to find a good deal on a rear sway bar AND the bwoody links? Those are pretty expensive as well so I was wondering if it makes sense to just wait till i can afford the links as well and then get them all installed. Id assume you have to take all the bars off to replace the smaller links right? Thus more installation cost...

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

you dont have to do them at the same time. the end links are very easy to get to with the tire off, you dont need to pull the bar just to change the links.

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

the rear bar is the difference maker. the front srt bar and stock laredo bar weigh exactly the same thing. i kinda feel like i wasted money on it, i didnt noticed any performance difference either. the rear bar was a huge difference in feel while driving.

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

the rear srt bar apparently has different end links and triangular mount plate. However I've seen most people recommend to use the stock link or buy the bwoody links. My thought is this. The purpose of the link is to allow the suspension to absorb bumps and dips, but connect the sway bar for body roll. The stock end link is much longer than the SRT one, so it would have a lot of flex, providing give to the sway bar when it needs to work. The bw end link is thick and would be rigid, making bumps and dips pretty harsh. Has anyone installed the srt endlinks with the triangle mount plate and how is your ride, both in cornering and in driving in every day roads?
