SS with lowering springs need bar change?

If I put BMR 1 in lowering springs on my 2014 SS I see no need to change the sway bars! At the limit it should be close to natural.(255/45/20 with 9in wheel and 275/40/20 with 10 in wheel).

Depends on what you want. The springs will give you a nice look and some better handling, but, will not put you much closer to neutral, which, is what I think you meant by natural. It will still have noticeable under steer in situations when you have to push the car without a good set of adjustable sways.

This exactly.

Then just a bigger rear sway bar to un-hook the rears abit?

Correct, a stiffer rear bar would reduce understeer.

You could just to the rear, but chances are it will be oversteer bias. I suggest doing a full set if you are going to do it at all. Springs will help with handling, but sway bars by far make the biggest difference of any suspension mod you can buy.

I suggest going with the Pfadt ZL spec sway bars. They are 3 way adjustable on both the front and rear bar, so you can dial them in for more or less oversteer/understeer, driving style and tire selection.

Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or for pricing

Best regards,

Tyler
