It will all depend on what other suspension components you match it to.

I personally like SVT Suspension kit with a H&R 24mm Front with a Steeda 28.6mm rear bar. I find the soft suspension and big bars give me a nice soft ride for normal daily driving and cornering ability for aggressive driving.

There is no "zts bar" but there are a lot of options as far as a rear sway bar goes. First off, what are you running for a front sway bar? If its stock, I would say to get something like a 22mm or maybe a 24mm rear on the extreme end. If you go bigger ( like a 25+mm ) you should start considering springs that have a high spring rate to help out or you risk cracking your control arms and probably a larger front bar to balance it out.

So, if you are on a stock sway bar in the front .... I would honestly recommend the Progress 22mm sway. If you want more tail-happy action, step it up to a 24mm H&R rear but I wouldn't recommend going larger without then upping the front bar as well. Personally, I am on the Eibach kit and love it...but I am also on some stiffer springs 150front/200 rear and haven't had any issues with cracked control arms over the past 2 years.

It's a custom part someone on the forum makes. You can pm him to order one, but they cost more than regular aftermarket parts, and take several weeks to make. On those springs you'd want to go with the smaller one, so you don't have to worry about your control arms breaking.

Im going to re-inforce my lca's with some scrap i have laying around with my mig. im not worried about my lca's should i just get the steeda 28.6 rear and the h&r front? I dont want much body roll. i would just like to have the adjustible sway, i think that would be awesome, between scca, and some road course i would love the adjustibility. i really want the eibach kit but their all on back order, eibach themselfs dont even have it.
