About Sway Bars
Suspension tuning doesn't stop with the springs and shocks. To really get your car dialed in, you'll want to look at a wide range of other components in your arsenal, including swaybars. Most modern performance-oriented vehicles now come stock with sway bars. The main purpose of a sway bar is to make the outside springs seem stiffer in a corner which is ideally what you'd want for the best performance.
Swaybars are used to counterpart the lean and roll you experience from your springs. If you are seeking flatter cornering with less wallowing in the turns then you should definitely be considering sway bars as a crucial upgrade to your car's suspension components. Sway bars are also often available with adjustment holes in the end link mounting tabs, which prove to be a useful tool for dialing in the handling attitude of the car, from understeer to oversteer.
The beauty of upgrading to stiffer sway bars is that they not only have a minimal impact on ride quality, but also they allow the use of softer springs so that a car can be set up for a cushier around-town ride and a flatter cornering attitude. Stiff springs and a very stiff sway bar can reduce body roll so much that the car's breakaway is hard to predict. Roll gives you some warning before you run out of grip. Most sway bars can be installed with basic hand tools.
