the SS FE5 front sway bar is sufficient for normal conditions.
and the progress rear sway bar is good also.


This is my set up (waiting to install the front bar)

Ottp street bar. im autocrossing next season and the guy who built the time attack cobalt recommended the ottp street cuz its small enough to be balanced with the fe1 front sway bar.

cliff notes- ottp better than ttr, better for fe1 suspension, happier in the long run

the too big one would be the ottp hardcore lol. sorry i dident specify.

the ottp street bar is about 25.4mm and is a much better design than the eibach. is the same think ness of the TTR rear bar and lighter.

if your gonna go 25ishmm (which you want with the fe1 front sway bar) then its basically ottp would be my choice.

x2! i absolutely love mine.
also one of the members here recently had their eibach rear bar snap at the mounting hole. no way that will happen with the ottp.
