basically, the best bet is to stick with the 1-1/4" bars if you plan on putting it on the road. i have also posed this question recently. i have yet to put these on my car. however, the combo of a stiffer bar and the stiffer poly bushings should make a large difference.

Main purpose?

Hello

How is this car driven?

Street, drag?

curvy roads? just straight?

If you drag race mostly go smaller. less weight.
A 1 1/4" front solid bar is heavy.

I have a front 1 3/8" in my race car, 1/2 mile asphalt.
.96 rear bar.

Alot of curvy roads go with bigger bars. Most like to go slightly bigger in front.
Early SC are nice, larger than later bars.
Also install spring tower braces, Front & Rear. If not you could crack the fire walls.

:D

blackbird, i would say try the 1-1/4 in the rear. and see what you think. it is a simple install. the front install is a PITA. so just try the rear for now

Ok thanks kp! When money permits I'll look Into swapping sway bars out. Just spent some money on the birdie. New uca's, lca's, sway bar links in the rear and some '03 cobras from the custom wheel shop!

Robert... Why do you say the poly bushings are crap?
