rear sway bars

I am thinking of getting one. I wanted some help deciding which one is best. Do any of you local guys have aftermarket rear sways? Help

I've got an Eibach one on my ZX3 and am very satisfied with it. I may put one on the SVT, but I don't know if there is any difference in size between the Eibach and the standard SVT.

I've saw some by a company called Progress, but I didn't know if they were good.

Try looking for the Steeda rear sway bar. I think it is a 25mm and several other posts talk about this sway bar.

Another idea: get the steeda comp. bar, I talked to SVT-SAGE on here about it. He has one and it works great on his car, the only bad thing is they don't come with new end-links. I supposed you could use the old ones, but might as well change them while ur at it. When I can afford one that's the one I'll buy. Just one thing it's massive 28.6mm.

It's only 100 plus shipping.

Progress sway bars are good.. if you plan to get sway bars that have more size than stock ones (22mm, 24mm, etc).. make sure you get the shocks and struts as well.. stock ones may or may not last that long.

Thanks, Strider I plan on doing the 25mm rear bar . I have already changed the suspension to kyb agx. They have worked well for me so far. They let you adjust for aggresive driving, and for daily driving. They ride really well too. Best of all they were not too pricey.

with this diameter I belive you will have to change front swaybar as well.
With stock front sway I think you can go 22mm max in the rear.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
