I had their sway bars on my 89 camaro, I didnt race it, and it made a HUGE difference!!! Even for daily driving. These will be on my SS very soon, without a doubt.

Can upgrading your F/R sway bar have any negative effect on 1/4 times or not?

Depends. Are you only driving straight roads or only taking turns at low speed? Then it probably wouldn't matter. However, if you have any fun roads you like to drive "enthusiastically" on, then it will matter.

You guys are making me lean towards adding these. Since the rear has 3 settings should I start with the lowest setting or what? Is this one of the better brands for this type of product?

I want them, but I have to wonder if it is going to cause me to wear out the tires quicker since they can't be balanced. Seems like these will allow me to corner faster and more stable thus wearing more outer and inner tread quicker. Any thoughts?

Is it just me or does it seem like there's a lot of movement in the rear subframe? It looks like you can see the the cradle move around the bolt in the undercarriage view. It looks like the cradle can use the bushing kits that are getting advertised

Sorry, I'm neither connected with the company nor is that my Camaro. That was a little more clear before the mods edited my original post to make it more "home-page-link" friendly. I'm just one of y'all.

Can't be balanced? I don't understand.... Your latter comment is true, just imagine it costs you a dollar every time you take a corner at speed

It looks more like the camera was fender mounted, I don't see the bolt head moving in relation to the donut. May just be the camera mount flexing under G's
