I'm pricing out sway bars for my focus. I'm wondering if the SVT sway bars are any good as far as performance goes? I like the Eibach SB's but they are pretty $$$$$$

Moved to the suspension chat area and fixed the misspelling in the title.


Having had both sway bars it's easy to say the Eibachs worked better and made it corner a little flatter. Turn in seemed much better too with the front end. It feels very balance with both the front and rear Eibachs. Like stock but turned up a notch or two.

Ah, Thanks. Didn't notice. I'll most likely hold for either Eibach's or H&R's

Pass on the H&R's, you don't need or want a 24mm front bar. Eibach's 22/25mm is a perfect match.

OEM SVT is 21mm and 21mm. It's is an upgrade from the stock Focus. But, the Eibachs are the better upgrade.

I have a buddy who is selling some H&R's used for the same price as a lot of used iebachs. Are you saying there too expensive for just street use or, they are crap products?

Yea, you can use the rear H&R bar. The purpose of adding a bar is to add roll stiffness & on a fwd car you'll want the roll stiffness at the rear, not the front. A bigger rear bar will tranfer dia. weight to the inside front tire for better traction out of the corners. A bigger front bar will add roll stiffness to the front & on a fwd car you don't want that.
