In Reply to: Rear sway bar size...long posted by Dwight Chew on June 27, 2001 at 12:11:34:

I'd have to agree with Nick -- going for the full 22/19 route myself only did good things. I'd generally say go as close to that as you can, 60 series tires will help to keep things pretty comfy, even on the crappy east San Jose mountain roads I live on. 'Too much' swaybar is generally in relation to the other one causing over or understeer; you can put a lot on, and still be okay as long as it's balanced with the other one.

I don't know how stiff the Dinan springs are, but that's where the harshness will come from, springs more than sways.

The rest of my suspension is stock springs and (rather worn) Bilstein sports. I'm also on 195/60x14's on 14x6's, too. This setup is nice and neutral, since adding an LSD I've thought it would be nice to have a little more front sway, though.

The ride on my car is sporty as I do autocross a bit, but more compliant than my similarly equipped (konis & eibach sways) '97 M3.

Anyhow, sounds like a good setup!
