Got it....I'd think you could get away with OEM bars from an LS1. 30 or 32 and 19 or 21 (1LE).

Been emailing Sam Strano. Here is what he said about the sway bars.

Subject: Sway bar size questions
Hey Sam,
I have a really quick question. Ive been looking all over the internet including your site for a good setup on my V6, 28mm and 15mm is stock for my 01 V6. I have relative stock suspension except a STB, SFCs, and LCAs & PHR. Ive read on V6 camaro forums that it seems that 32mm and 17/19mm. It seems like everyone has their own opinions lol. I drag race my car on weekends and like taking corners fast. Not sure if that helps you out much. Any suggestions would be awesome.

Derek-
I run 35/22 hollow bars (fwiw, all GM fronts are already hollow). 32/19 is balance very similarly, but about 30% softer in comparison. Nobody who has switched from the 32/19 to a 35/22 has been sorry they did. Also it might be worth noting that LS1 SS's and WS6's had a rare option called Bilstein Ultra Suspension that had a 35 frotn/21 solid rear as original equipment, so did the SLP built 2001 and 2001 1LE's.
32/19 would be better than stock, I'd never recommend 32/17 that's silly. But if you are going to do it, I'd do the whole deal. And remember a set of bars comes with all new bushings and links... if you get old GM take offs that stuff would cost you some $80 on top of the bar cost and never be as good on roll control.


Sure would.. same chassis and all. What works on the V-8's works on the V-6 (remember your 6 is all cast iron, an LS is all aluminum.. very little actual weight difference. Most all difference is in if you have a 5 speed vs the T56 6 speed. If you have an auto... there is no difference to speak of period.

My bars are a bit more than 20 pounds lighter as the set and cost slightly less to ship. In the end the to the door difference is about $30 between both sets, but you save 20 or more pounds. That's a CHEAP weight savings, nothing else compares to the weight saved for the money.

I carry both because I know that sometimes that $30 matters, but I think it's a bit funny when the price difference is the equivalent of 7.5 gallons of gas, one time and with a tangible savings on weight.

Good read....man he loves to talk.

Actually considered his hollow bars for weight and improved handling. Currently have a 32/19 set-up.

Did you jump on it? If ya need new bushings AZ does carry ES bushings. I was shocked lol too bad they never carry anything bigger than 2-3 inches with intake and exhaust components though or I'd be done with the Volant.

Gotta loooove the old 15 minute project turning into 15 days.

If I have the chance to snag some 32/19mm sway bars off of ls1tech for $60 shipped. Think I should hurry and snag them? Ill need to buy the end links and bushings. Figured they would be a nice upgrade compared to the stock 28/15mm from my V6.

USPS = United States Postal Service.. which does not like updating tracking data on their packages.

And why not just drive out, pick it up.. and then claim that it got lost and demand a refund lol!
