Nick, I'm not taking sides either! Apparently someone has said that a .6mm difference in diameter is enough to make a difference in the car's handling which is not true. If the bar diameter is smaller by .6mm (1/42" or .023622") and that bothers him then he should tell someone at the company that sells them! But to insinuate to others or believe himself that this small size difference in the bar diameter means anything to handling is wrong.

There apparently were two seperate issues going on and I was addressing the handling issue and he was addressing the advertising issue. These are two different issues entirely but in my opinion they are non-issues.

I appreciate your candid and honest comments.

...I don't think the real issue here is the performance difference between 25.4mm and 26mm sway bars. I think the issue is that some people feel that if the product was advertised as being 26mm, that they expect to get 26mm, not 25.4mm, and understandably so.

I don't think many people would like it if BMW advertised the M3 with 240hp, but it turned out to only have 230hp.
