ST front sway bar

Anyone with first hand experience running this bar on their 4G? Got a Progress RSB in the back and a few stabilizer bars here and there (Tanabe STB w/stock STB, Tanabe underbrace & Zmotorsports rear brace), wondering if adding a front bar would make a noticable difference, and if for the better or for the worse. Thanks

Adding a front bar would increase understeer, generally not something you’re going to want on a FWD car...

Would it have any effect on countering torque steer or wheel hop?

I wouldn’t add sway bars for those reasons IMO. They can be great at helping control body roll. Adding a stiffer sway bar to the back of a front wheel drive can help add oversteer. Most FWD cars come with a ton of understeer as delivered from the factory, so the stiffer rear sway bar can help even that out.

For wheel hop I’d look more at control arm and motor mount bushings, perhaps stiffer springs and shocks. Just my humble opinion.

Thanks. I've got full Energy Suspension poly motor mounts and an LSD. What I want from the car is to keep the steering wheel more or less straight when launching. Thinking some coilovers are definitely needed at this point

LSD should be a huge help versus a stock 4G! Sounds like you’ve got a good build going.

What do you think PJ stands for? People expect my car to be visually underwhelming lol

If and when you see a special, let us know

Again, not sure why anyone waits for sales... A lot of companies will just give you that sort of discount right away
