They are sway bars. Their purpose is to limit lateral movement in the suspension components, thus reducing sway, hence their name. The thicker/more solid the bar, the tighter the suspension. This usually equates to better handeling characteristics. They connect left side suspension parts to right side suspension parts so that when the left side tries to lean/sway, that energy is disipated into the right hand components and vice versa.

The thicker the bar in the rear the better. For the front, which I still havent found a replacement for, the smaller the bar, the better.

the bigger the better for rear really isn't accurate... there is TOTALLY such a thing as too big... and too big in the rear and too small in the front means you spin the car into a guardrail.

well, if you go bigger in the front yes it does increase understeer, but if you're going for a handling/drift machine then this is not a problem. I was looking for front and rear sway bars for some time now. I'll have to order these later this week......anyone know if any additional custom work is required to get these to fit?

correct the pic is of two, but they get you because it is just a Rear sway bar I almost found this out the hard way :mad: I've been looking FOR EVER for a front sway bar and I cannot find one anywhere :banghead: :mad: I'm trying to go 21mm all the way around.

i always had the feeling the FD was more for looks than actual use.... Can any owners verify a noticable difference?

The FD front strut car does help lock up the front suspension. I have alot less torque steer or hard launches and alot more control through corners. Combined with my rstb, its probably the best thing i have done to my car.

I completely concur with Tropiccougar's statements.

I also have the FD STB (replaced my old OMP STB) installed in conjunction with the FTP RSTB. They have made AMAZING improvements in the handling performance in MY car.

I'm planning on adding the floor bar brace shortly (probably next week)...I'll post results following installation.

Charles, I hope thats not the floor brace that i think it is. If it is, its totally cosmetic and wont do anything.
