Best Rear Sway Bar for Street.

I tried search but couldn't find anything. My Cobalt has no rear sway bar and has too much body roll. I'm looking for a good street friendly rear sway bar.

Get one from Powell Powell Race Parts.com

I bought the Hardcore Bar. Really easy to install.

You could also swap the springs for SS springs in the rear. Made a big difference on my LT

Powell's swaybars are undoubtedly the best, I've driven a winter with his XXX (1.5'') and a summer with a hardcore (1.25''), only issue I ever had was it is the first thing to drag in snow so more likely to get stuck and on occasion if you clear chunks of ice and snow in the front only for it to hit the swaybar instead. Not that it ever caused any damage, it looked new and was from one of the first batch of swaybars made. I highly recommend a set of aftermarket springs and shocks/struts if you want to go all out, but you need a nice set of wheels and tires or you won't have the grip to come close to what the suspension can do.

Powell Hardcore bar FTW. Definitely goes best with springs/struts/shocks - and a grippy set of tires. And as mentioned above: it definitely helped a lot when I still had the 15s and all seasons - but as soon as I got my 18's with the sticky-as-all-hell Direzza ZIIs, then the full benefit of the swaybar could be enjoyed (the front end had enough stick not to slide before the rear could).

I'll second the suspension being more fun even on the 15's but having a much better set of wheels and tires makes it even better.
