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. 

Fits: Chevy Cobalt, Saturn Ion, and Chevy HHR (all models/trims/engines). Designed for the Delta chassis cars, does not fit Ecotec powered Regal.

Vaut vraiment la peine

La sway bar avant est totalement Worth it. Malgré que tu dois descendre un peu le subframe c'est pas si pire a faire. Avec sway bar AR et sway bar av de zzp,il y a une méchante différence sur la stabilité du véhicule dans les courbes!

Very nice, semi-difficult to install

Ended up removing the rear cradle bolts from the lower control arm (had them out anyway, replaced the control arms at the same time), the three for the trans mount, two on the steering rack, and also loosened the two front cradle bolts while supporting the engine with a exhaust jack to make enough room to remove the stock bar toward the rear of the car. Don't make the mistake like me and not buy the rack bushings and rear trans mount at the same time. Do them all together.

Wow, that is STIFF...

I have the most responsive HHR SS go-kart that anyone has ever seen! You can't make the body roll and it keeps the car planted well beyond what my tires are capable of holding. Pulling into slopped parking lots with big dips makes it feel too stiff if that is even a thing...

Worth The price/time

Decided to rebuild my front end and bought this to upgrade from OEM along with the MOOG sway bar cobalt bushings. Much sturdier and thicker than the OEM one. I removed the control arms/tie rod ends(inner/outer) and the rear transmission mount in order to take the sway bar out. I didn't have to drop the subframe or mess with anything on the steering rack to do so. I pulled the sway bar from the Driver side out to the Passenger side. All it took was a little patience to get the old one out and the new one in. I paired this with the white line KLC175 sway bar links. Haven't driven the car on the new suspension but happy with the purchases so far
