Just as an interesting side note, Sway-bars are used by manufacturers in very different ways. BMW for instance, believes in stiffer springs/dampers with relatively weak sway-bars whereas Lotus uses a lot of sway bar with a relatively soft damper/spring setup. Both are great handlers, but shoot for the same goal with different methods.

So many people forget how much of an interconneted system it all is, but of course not many companies would sell (or customers would buy) nothing but a front to back full suspension upgrade... After all, even an upgrade in tires could totally change the TTLD.
