IPD also sells 25/22mm bars for the 240s, and they used to sell a 28mm
front bar for the 260s.

The size of the sway bars should not change the ride much at all,
especially with the rear bar on a live axle. Your choice of tires, and
their inflation will have more of an effect on the ride.

That's not been my experience. The 240s have more reusable fasteners, my
760 has way more self tapping screws fastening plastic to plastic. My 760
rattles way more than my 240s ever did.

The swaybars have been the most dramatic change in ride of anything I've put
on that car, going from the stock turbo bars to the IPD 25mm bars was like
night and day. The ride is *much* harsher over uneven surfaces, there's a
cobblestone section in downtown Seattle that rattles my teeth if I drive
that car on it, on smooth roads it's absolutely wonderful though, corners
like it's on rails.
