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.

This is the next step stiffer bar than the GMPP front. It is a solid bar instead of a hollow bar like the GMPP.  It is 33mm.

Love it

I got the lowering springs but the car still didn't handle right. I'm going to install this and the rear sway bar and see if that makes the car handle better. Although obviously it's not installed yet I received it basically the next day and the part looks fantastic! Thanks ZZP!

ZZP front sway

Pretty solid bar watch out for chipping off the powder coating when sliding it in. Other than that it is a very tight fit there’s less than a centimeter of clearance between the bar and the cv axles.

Another upgrade

This is definitely an upgrade over OEM but I was actually pretty surprised that the original seemed pretty solid in its own right. This was a 4 Jack install, 2 tires and 2 control arms and I went in through the passenger side and slid it underneath the axle boot (attached picture). This took me a while to figure out and I scraped it up pretty bad even by leaving the plastic on but it ripped right off. Another upgrade I am glad I did along with the rear and trailing arms.

easy install, amazing handling

first off: I weighed this against the stock sway bar. the stock sway bar was exactly 10 pounds, and this one weighs 19.6 pounds. very nearly double the weight! installation was very straight forward, and didn't take up my whole afternoon even working leisurely. this thing eliminated so much body roll on my 2001 impala 3400! I even had to let a friend drive so he could see for himself. amazing product!
