You should give them a call. I think Dave ran the sway bars on his car for sometime, to check it out. My opinion is it is not really needed. If you have a 20mm in the rear, and the stock 19mm in the front, then the car is pretty balanced. Changing both diameters to a larger size while keeping almost the same ratio from frt/rear, what is the point? Especially with the P1, your car has no body role as it is.
Just my opinion. I know the bigger bars will make the car have less body role (or in your case eliminate it all together), but it seems like the price ($200 +) could be spent somewhere else to be more effective.

Ps-Bill, I am thinking of getting the anit-lift kit. Does this cause the tires to wear faster, or is it just a geometry change to the contol arm that you only notice when the car going through a hard corner? I guess my question is, does the anti-lift kit effect your everyday drive, and cause tire wear?

hey, maybe you guys could help me, suspension-wise? I just bought and installed a 20mm rear bar, and let me tell ya, it does nothing for me. Are there any relatively inexpensive suspension upgrades i could do? (this means without getting all new struts)

paul the beauty of the anti lift kit is you have camber only while you turn your wheels so when you are driving straight you have no camber so you don't scrub off your tires

Thanks Bill, I have to call Rallispec.

Jgard18,
I live near Boston, and I have the 20mm and the Eibach Springs on stock struts. If you want to meet up sometime, you are welcome to try it out.
I am surprised the 20mm does nothing for you. You should bring the old and the 20 to an autocross and try both. You would be amazed.
