Get in contact with JDP Sales and ask him what setup to go with. He's helped me with all my suspension questions.

I upgraded to the factory ZL1 front bar / endlinks on mine. No rear upgrade. Completely different handling now.

You have only one choice for an outboard mount rear sway bar and that is the JPSS rear bar designed to fit all models of the 5th Gen and clear the banjo bolt on the rear V6 caliper.

Funny thing is I just posted this a short time ago in the suspension section.

This is a 1LE running with JPSS sway bars.



When the 2010 5th Gen was released with the inboard bar, it understeered / pushed badly when driven hard. A smaller front bar with a big rear bar improved the performance, but nothing like the GM engineering change to relocate the sway bar closer to the wheel on the ZL1. If you have upgraded sways, you can replace your rear bar with a JPSS bar and see a huge improvement. If you are on stock V6 bars, installing a JPSS set of bars will be transformational.



JPSS bars for that fit the V6 are in stock ready to ship today. You can read more about JPSS bars for your V6 here: http://www.jpssonline.com/#/jpss-black-magic-sway-bars/
I am in Martinsville, VA just down the street from the Speedway. How far away are you in WV?

How are these sway bars for a DDiver car, I also plan on driving in winter with a set of snow tires. This my only car for right now. I'm just looking to get some body roll out on hard turns.

They will be fine and the car will be flat in the corners

In the winter we set the front bar to full hard. You are good to go.

I can't say for 100% sure but if you were there doing that there would definitely be a higher chance of me buying them. That's just me tho

chances are I'd be more likely to buy a rear or front sway bar instead of both at the same time to save some money for other things there
