Sway Bars

Now that I have good rubber on the car I am going to change out the sway bars. Any recommendations?

Unless you track your car, just note your ride quality in the street will suffer the stiffer your sway bars.

The streets in Los Angeles ar khrap.

"Unless you track your car, just note your ride quality in the street will suffer the stiffer your sway bars."

Not really. Sway bars only work when going through the corners. What kills the ride quality is big torsion bars/ high springs rates, heavy duty, or race shocks, monoball camber plates, etc.

I have to dissagree, swaybars does affect riding quality as they connect LH suspension with RH suspension and that has influence to the indipendend wheel suspesion, if one wheel is hit, the other will be moved a bit as well. No more floating as all single acting.

Splitting hairs. Yes, if you used a massive sway bar and hit a big pot hole, but that would be the least of your worries. If your going down a crappy road everything I mentioned above would have much more impact on the ride quality. If your going down the same straight crappy road with the sway bar disconnected I doubt you could tell.
A nice street up is harder to achieve because you would need to take into considerations the road quality you most drive, and what your willing to tolerate. It all gets down to personal preferences.

Rear monoballs smooth out the ride in back noticably because they remove the sticktion of the original rubber trailing arm bushings that are bonded in place on the inner and outer diameters and have to twist for the trailing arms to pivot.

I'm running TRG sway bars front and rear, there set on middle adjustment and they definably effected the ride quality. Its stiffer feeling and a bit fidgety.
They are the thickest bars they did mind you, massive over kill for the road but man does the car stay flat in the bends

Smart Racing Products. Great quality, highly adjustable, rear links put in the right spot on the spring plates.
+1 on rear spring plates.

I run Weltmeisters on my track car. They are fine and allow for infinite adjustablilty. It has 23mm torsion bars up front and 29s in the back.
