Question Sway Bars

Just wondering does anyone know how many mm sway bar the EF has from the factory?

Also would it be worth it if i got a ticker one up front as i have put an 18mm on the horse n cart rear end. Car handles great with the rear sway bar added, but i'm wondering if i will get even better handling with increasing the front one.

Thanks in Advanced.

Bigger bar = less roll = less machanical grip overall.

Bigger bar on the rear end adds to oversteer

Bigger bar on the front adds to understeer.

Bigger bar LESSENS independence of the wheels.

Hence, it's a balance act!
