Oh geez. Please read the FE2 topic by Badnit in Performance and Brainstorming. PLEASE collect all the rest of the parts and install them as a package instead of unbalancing your handling and ride.

Bad. Very bad. Upper trim was ok, though. Also, has HUD.

I know, I know. I'ts not complete. But time and money are big constraints in my life. But when I replaced my thin, stock rear sway bar with a WS6 one on my Firebird, it was a noticable differance. It shouldn't do anything but help

When you say all the parts do you mean the front swaybar or all of the suspension? I am just curious as wouldn't just the bigger swaybars help in handling? (And yes I know it still won't handle like a SSEi ).

Yes larger sway bars will reduce body roll. It will still ride like an SE in every aspect except the amount that the body rolls in turns.

I really fancy my FE2 sway bars. Even though I think the front was a waste of effort.
