front swaybar or rear sway bar

I've done the rear swaybar before on my 04 Mach and it was truly amazing upgrade with the way it handled. my question is will the front sway bar do the same or should I try to find a rear swaybar and swap the front swaybar I just got and plan on doing the front sway bar later?

Front swaybar is installed, what a difference.

Re: front swaybar or rear sway bar

Nice! I want to do larger f/r sway bars eventually. Had them on my 94 (along with most of the steeda catalog) and that car always felt like it was on rails. My buddy who had a c5 at the time drove it and was amazed. He still talks about it haha.

Re: front swaybar or rear sway bar

Very happy with the front and rear Eibach's. Car handles exceptionally well. Really tied down the front end. no regrets here...was able to back the Front iluminas off from 4 to 3 after i put the eibach sway bars too...

I did the steeda rear swaybar and was amazed at it, but never did the front and I am so happy that I went ahead and just installed it, because it is amazing, just as the rear swaybar was.

I'm planning on the rear swaybar down the road and FLSC also.
All in good time.

Are the eibachs tubular?

Re: front swaybar or rear sway bar

Not sure if they are or not..? I've had their front and rear kit on my list for a long time and just haven't followed through lol. I thought they'd match up nicely with my Eibach Sportline springs. Looks like the price is up quite a bit since the last time I looked at them.

Re: front swaybar or rear sway bar

I have no clue, but I couldn't argue with how I got them and it is way better than the stock one and I can for sure tell a difference.

I agree. I've always thought Eibach was good quality. I've seen a few on Facebook trash them, but my experience has been great and as I expected.

No problem, i'm for sure going to do the rear sway bar upgrade. I always been a steeda fan, but I would like to have a matching brand on rear swaybar.
I guess it depends if I find another job for one and then I'll take what ever brand they got, lol. Honestly, I got lucky someone having a brand new one and the price for the part vs the price I would have charged for that job, it was a win win for me.
