Im running just the H&R front sway bar right now. Im trying to figure out a way to mount the steeda 28.6 without it ripping the mount out of the frame.

Yes! when installing the new one Make sure you get the twisty/curvey part of the bar kinda in the wheel well an zip tie the hole to the drive shaft then do to the wiggle the other side in.

NOTE: always do the driver's side first because the pass side is really easy.

I'm running the Eibach SP Sway Bars (22mm front, 25mm rear) and love 'em. I also added PowerGrid adjustable front sway bar end links. You can read about those HERE.

For a smoother ride you'll want to get the FocusSport rear stress bar. I was pleasantly surprised by that bar and how much it calmed down the harshness of the ride for me.
