Default Stiffer still yet

I need to know if I add a front swaybar will that help with the roll? I have a rear swaybar and a ALK on the car now, just do not know if I need to add the front one or a strut bar. I know that the energy has to go somewhere just do not know where it should go, and maybe I should just get coilovers before those items above instead to take care of that roll?

Strut bar will stiffen the car but won't help with the roll problem.. get swaybar instead.. and later get strut bar.. or you can always opt for stiffer shocks with coil-overs..

"front swaybar will that help with the roll" Are you seriously asking that? Sway bars are for SWAY prevention.

Some people suggest stiffer springs. Springs will effect ride quality over bumps with added roll prevention as a side benefit.

Make sure the size the bars to each other, if you put a large front bar and keep the rear bar at its current size you will loose the balance/overstear you currnetly have

Yes I was serious. I knew that the Coilovers I will be ordering would fix some of the roll, just wanted to make sure on the front swaybar and strut bar and how it transfers the energy, and where, like into the frame or what.
