Sway bars and their effects EA-ED's

Howdy all, just wanted to know:

1. what sizes/ brands peple have upgraded to
2. what effects the upgrades had
3. if there were any negative effects (including the failure of other components)
4. how happy you are with the product that you bought.

Specifically I am interested in the above for EA-ED's.

Cheers,
G.

P.S. I am currently leaning towards whiteline, can anyone get a deal?

Whiteline has a very good comparison chart that tells you how much it will stiffen your car up.

Ive got a 27mm ED XR6 front bar for sale.

Re: Sway bars and their effects EA-ED's

we pulled some 27mm front and 22mm rear sway bars off my wrecked EF II Ghia about a month ago.. so they should be easy to come by.

Re: Sway bars and their effects EA-ED's

How do you tell the size of a sway bar? is it the diameter?
