    A few months ago I swapped out my stock Gen III front antisway bar for a Gen IV ACR front antisway bar. I really like the change. It handles and corners better. It is a little tight in there so if you choose to do this, you will need another person to help you carefully remove the old one and insert the new one so you do not snag or damage anything in the process.

    Any reason you didn't swap out the rear one, too? I don't know how substantial the difference in them is, but I'd think that it would help keep the car more neutral in turns. I remember back in the day when I swapped out the front swaybar on my old Trans Am for a big one and didn't do the rear, and the car got pretty squirrely at the limit - but that was back in the day when subframes were attached to each other with rubber bushings :) The good thing about that was it was easy to replace the front subframe after crashing. The bad thing was that the handling sucked so bad that crashing was a common occurrence.

    I have considered the same upgrade, but I would not do one end of the car only.

    The rear one is the same in both variants.
