sway bars

Hey guys I was looking to get performance front and rear sway bars for my LS to accent the springs and rims. Im looking to make the car handle well. Any suggestions on good priced package deals? any preffered brands? ne one use FE5 stuff? I saw this on ebay

ST FRONT & REAR ANTI SWAY BAR 05 06 07 CHEVY COBALT:eBay Motors (item 200360757881 end time Oct-05-09 20:33:16 PDT)

Has anyone used or heard of this brand? they look nice but 19mm rear is kinda small compared to the fe5's 22mm. and the front 22mm is also small compared to the fe5's 24mm. These specs were stated for fe5 on the crateenginedepot site.

I recommend getting the SS/SC front sway bar (you don't need anything more than that...and it's a bit cheaper than aftermarket). Eibach's is overkill...way too big.

Suspension Techniques rear is a bit small and the front is OK.

I would recommend for the rear the "street" bar from Over The Top Performance...that's what I have along with Sportlines right now and I love it. I have an Ark front strut bar as well. My future plans are SS/TC struts & shocks, FE5 front sway bar, and a couple minor things.

I agree with this fully! Pretty much my same plans, except i have SSC springs and the TTR rear bar

In the LS/LT's it makes a world of difference! We don't even have a rear sway bar! all we have is that torsion beam lol
