What is the Size of the front sway bar? and is it different on the standard vs the svt? I noticed that standard on the svt is 18mm where the standard is 16mm is there any difference in the front as well?? is the front also an 18mm on svt and 16mm on standard?? i went to a 21mm on the rear and was wanting to know if i needed to increase the size of the front one as well

ACtually for our cars, you increase the rear sway bar size, and decrease the front sway bar size. I know alot of cougars with the sport package came with 18mm rear sway bars, not the 16mm you speak of. But to answer ur question, go with a smaller front sway bar, of which i know of no aftermarket ones for the Cougar.

The standard should be 18mm and the SVT should be 16mm. The reason why the SVT is actually less in diameter is because a smaller diameter bar actually eliminates some of the mild understeer associated with our cars.

To answer your question, no, you don't need to increase your front sway.
