I can try to measure my 79 930 front bar and post data for you later today, Ijust removed mine to install Smart Racing bars.
That's a good point. I 'm also increasing the rear sway bar size, as soon as I can find one and also determine the sizes of these also...

I'm trying to keep costs low, so if I can gain an improvement with larger fr & rear sways; while still not investing large $$ in an adjustable set (eventually will do, as soon as my skills justify) I'd like to go this route....

If you could measure yours that would be great! (rear size too?)

I was also told; according to pelican tech. the stock size of the 930 front sway bar is 20mm, while another has confirmed they are stamped with 22

My SC has 18mm rear and I think 20mm front.

I'm thinking there is probably a difference due to model years

I'm still trying to get the same info re: 930 rear sway bar size too....

Thanks again for any assistance
