thick stick? sway bar, who makes the thickest?
 
I've looked and searched here, and other sites, and of course Google. I can't find the answer to a pretty simple question.
Who makes the thickest, biggest, best sways for the wk1-srt?
Not sway bar ends, but the actual sway bars, front and back.
I have found that Eibach and Addco both make em, Addco being the bigger of the two.
Is there another comapany that makes these?
How much thicker is the Addco bar compared to the stocker srt bar?
what are the improved driving characteristics of the Addco with b-woody end links?

thanks for the help..

so, reading that Addco has improved on the front fitment is not exactly accurate?
what about doing the Eibach up front? or would that cause some problems with under-steer?
What are the characteristics with just the Addco rears?

Yeah, I know awile back there was a problem with the front fitment, but allegidly they have fixed the problem. so back to my original question/s:I've looked and searched here, and other sites, and of course Google. I can't find the answer to a pretty simple question.

I have the Addco sway bar and Bwoody Links and my beast rides like its on rails.... The ride is a bit stiffer and much more controled now, which I noticed rightway after installing the Addco sway bars and bwoody links..... I also have Eibach springs on as well.... I have been on a full track (Roadcourse) and never felt like I was going to flip my beast on these corners..... If you are going to just drive it on the street and never hit a Roadcourse then I would skip the sway bars and just do the springs and the Bwoody links... Mine have been on for over 1.5 years now....

to make the ADDCO work for you king I would do a few things.

ADDCO fixed the bar a LITTLE. they did not address the issue that their mounts DO NOT FIT. So FIRST I would make the addco mounts work and NEXT I would make them greaseable. casue they give you a poly bushing and it will squeak like NAILS ON CHALKBOARD soon if not.

the other issue was the clunk. if you look at your stock front sway there are like washers welded on the bars just to the outside of the front mounts. addco dont have that and it can make some clunks. to fix it they sell things that clamp on the sway to stop or limit that side to side travel. not sure these will fit but I would get something like this to limit that side to side movement. like these but i tTHINK YOU NEED A BIT BIGGER I dont remember. http://www.optionsauto.com/Sway-Bar-...roducts/10661/
