he's asking about the FRONT sway bar. well the idea is is that the softer the setting in front and the stiffer the setting in back promotes oversteer which is good for cornering. you would want the front sway bar to get that rigidness to the car that would help it turn in...that is why hotchkis has the front sways only 40% stiffer than stock and they have the rear at 88% stiffer.
a front sway bar and chassis is fine...just make sure your rear is stiff so that you pull your butt out when you go to a turn.
thanks casper! the only one to answer. so i guess you suggest hotchkis?
it depends what you want...
in the case of sway bars performance and comfort don't go hand in hand. if you want to performance going over bumps will be kinda harsh...if you want a comfy ride your ability to corner will suffer. here is a list of TRD
and hotchkis sway bars vs the oem stiffness and i will let YOU decide! TRD
Front Sway: 25% stiffer TRD
Adj. Rear Sway:58% stiffer
Hotchkis Adj. Front Sway: 43%/70% stiffer
Hotchks Street Rear Sway: 88% stiffer
Hotchks Competition Rear Sway: 123% stiffer
i have hotchkis and over bumpy roads i feel like my back is gonna crack...but my car feels and corners like a go-kart!
