For the people who had a lowering kit with the stock sways and then moved to after market sways, how big of a handling difference did you notice? For example, on a track you could hit 35mph on a selected turn, after installation what speed could you hit?

I'm interested in buying some new sways, but I want a set that is as neutral as possible.

And some nice oversteer? I'm nooo fan of my ass end coming out on a fwd car. lol.

I thought about getting the 28.6 bar because of its price, but I was adviced that one of the rear tires could come off the ground on intense steering, which is a loss in traction.

I'm thinking the eibach 22mm front and 25mm rear coupled with the FS lower front stress bar.

your ass end will not slide out, ya your rear tire will come off the ground with the 28.6 but thats if it's a sharp turn going up a really really steep hill (like a drive way).

ya, w/ the 24 and 28.6mm bars, your rear end shouldn't slide out. i haven't had the problem to much. w/ my Rcomps, it did a little, but ur suspension will be so good that ur weak pt. will be ur tires. on street tires, you can't turn fast enough to utilize the full potential of the setup, but its a darn good setup to have!!
