You dont need Swaybars.. you already have them on your SVT + you dont even have to have them to install the kit

Yeah I have the Pro Kit with Sportlines and barely touched the sway bars. If you do plan on changing them. Now would be the time to do it though.

Having an overly stiff rear sway bar can induce lift off oversteer much easier which sounds fun...but is kinda terrifying if you don't expect it. I'd stick with stock unless you're doing some serious track use.
