        I personally only have experience with the 17.5mm bar. I have run it at one set from full stiff and it's great for street driving and autocross.

        I'd really love to know which bar is stiffer, the 19mm or the 17.5 on the stiffest set.

        Supracharged loves his 19mm, and every other person I know loves it as well.

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

            I've only heard of a problem on one persons car with this bar. I don't know how you can do an install wrong on it, but that's the only way I can see something like that happening.

            The little endlinks or endlink to knuckle bracket would break long before the subframe. I'd like to see pictures of what happened.

              Something in that thread we should be looking for?

              I got the Moog endlinks for the race car, they look to be about 3x as thick as the stock ones, and also have grease fittings for the joints.

                      so what do homemade endlinks have to do with choosing between sway-bar sizes?

                          Aren't the endlinks supposed to hang down from the bracket and the bar be below the sway bar brackets?

                            I spoke to you before about Jon's car.

                            I need to find that pic, it's great. Broke that rear almost in half lol. Jon did not tell me when he installed the 19mm that he re-used the 17.5mm bushings from the previous bar, and did not modify them. After seeing the damage and then finding that out, I realized that the bushings were probably the cause. Clamping down those bushings on that bar was sooooooo amazingly tight (hell it broke under normal driving, he was just taking a turn under moderate speed when he felt it go). We fixed the bushing issue and Jon has had the bar on the car for over six months now (of course we welded steel plate on the new rear, just in case... the frame of the car would break before that thing now!!!!!) and have had no trouble what so ever.
