Once you add some basic handling mods such as lowering springs, upgraded struts, better tires, etc, it becomes increasingly important to consider upgrading your sway bars. As you improve the ability of your car to stick to the road, you will notice an increase in body roll (or sway/lean). This is where a stiffer/larger sway bar setup becomes beneficial. Sway bars work by distributing the upward/downward force of the car evenly from left to right, in an attempt to keep the car level (eliminate the heavy lean, or body roll while turning) the factory sway bars are sufficient for a factory suspension/tire setup, but once you change things out, they are no longer enough. This is where the larger diameter/stiffer sway bars come in, they will help keep all 4 tires planted firmly on the pavement, and drastically improve your cars handling ability.

Sway bar 101: This is assuming you have a properly setup front/rear spring rate and good shocks/struts...  For example, lets say you are coming into a corner fast and want to make the turn.  If the car tends to understeer (front pushes/does not turn) you will want to increase the rear sway bar stiffness.  People generally prefer oversteer (rear swings out) in a corner in a front wheel drive car because you can always accelerate out to control the amount of oversteer.  If the car oversteers a lot, then increase the front sway bar. 

-Diameter is 1" on this sway bar.

Good Quality

I installed the sway bar on my cobalt 2.2L and they feel awesome. It significantly increased the handling and the steering wheel feeling. My old sway bar was on bad condition so the new one made a huge improvement. The quality is great and I'm satisfied with the product.

More than worth it!

it isn't a quick install but once you find the right instructions its simple to remove, and well worth the effort, ive installed the rear sway as well beforehand and adding this made a whole new world of difference just like the zzp 1inch rear sway bar did. Bumps are a bit more aggressive but the car doesn't bounce as much as it did side to side and almost no body roll in sharp or fast corners with the moog upgraded links.

Feels awesome

I had a little trouble at first getting the stock sway bar off (08 hhr ss) but it was my fault. i didn't loosen everything i was supposed to. After i realized my stupidity, the new one went in flawlessly. This paired with the zzp rear sway bar and the right coilovers made my top heavy hhr ss drive like it was on rails.
