There is no difference if you are only looking at a pure lateral acceleration/force and there are no preloads going on. There is a difference in how fast a one-wheel bump disturbance is transferred to the opposite wheel, though. Sway bar is faster since it transfers it's force to the other side at the speed of sound vs. having to work through the chassis inertia/displacement. This means grip should be better with the equivalent all-spring setup, though the force transmitted to the chassis will be higher in that case. The magnitude of those points will vary based on how stiff the sway bar is relative to the springs.
