    The front stock sway is 22mm and the rear is 16mm stock. I would start with a 19-22mm rear and see how that feels. I am in the same boat and plan on doing the rear sway and alighnment.

    Nice man I appreciate it! I think I'll go 25 mm front and 22 mm rear then are you gonna use stock end links or upgrade?

    24mm up front and 22 mm in the back is common. Good choice on the kartboy endlinks and good job doing some digging around before you posted up. I would say that even at 22 mm, the whiteline swaybar would do better the stock swaybar, and it can come in adjustable. I would max out your front and rear negative camber. There is not much you can do in the back for camber as it is not adjustable, but up front you should be able to get somewhere around -1.5 camber. Make sure there is very little to no toe.

    You don't want to run stock endlinks with aftermarket swaybars.

    On a side note, you might consider selling your stock tires and upgrading to something better (I run Michelin Pilot Super Sports). The stock tires aren't that great. I saw a huge improvement in handling (cornering and breaking) when I upgraded my tires. Just wanted to mention that since you are discussing handling

    Well the rear IS adjustable but it requires $$$$.

    As 11blackSTi said, run 24 up front(adjust to stiffest setting) and 22 in the rear. You don't want to run anything bigger than 22mm(As far as I know) on stock springs.

    Here is nice link that will tell you what you need to know about sways

    The OFFICIAL Swaybar & Endlink FAQ ! - NASIOC

    I suggest you go over it.

    I was in your same situation and started with an STI 19mm RSB and it made a nice subtle difference but I then got to really wondering what a Whiteline setup would feel like. I ended up with 24mm FSB and 22mm RSB both adjustable with the WL KLC 182 and couldn't be happier. The STI sways you can find for about $40-$50 on iWSTI etc. but the Whiteline are great. With the Whiteline setup I also noticed how bad the stock tires are!

    Be sure and order the Kartboy endlink spacers when you order your setup, you'll need them...I'm running the Kartboy spacers with my Perrin endlinks and Cobb FSB, body roll has been greatly reduced.

    Hey so one more question after I install these should I definitely get an alignment or do I not need to?

    Zero toe. I'd max out the negative camber. Probably looking at -1.5ish up front and it is what it is for the back, because its not adjustable back there.

    Adding sway bars don't require a alignment.

    That being said a custom alignment is one of the best if not the best bang for your buck mod you can do for handling. I would recommend it to everyone who hasn't got one to get it done.

    Since you have a 3rd Gen the rear camber can't be adjusted. Caster is pretty much static unless if you get a ALK or other mods.
    That leave Toe and front camber.
    I run -1.4 degree's front camber and 0 toe at all 4 corners. The toe is important for tire wear, so for a DD 0 toe is best. Camber depends how agressive you want to go, I would go more than -1

    This thread is a great resource when it comes to alignments.

    Camber doesn't have as big an effect as toe. -1.5 would be fine.

    Sweet as far as setting up the sways stiffness wise should I go as stiff as possible or just in the middle also how much will that effect the overall ride of the car?
