well, when i said stiffer, i was relating that to the body roll. there will less of it so it will feel stiffer in the corners. not for rides and bumps or dips that has alot to do with braces, springs, and struts. but yes in the corners a stiffer bar will help it stiffen out. and the stuff people are saying about energy transfer to the tires. i mean, everything you do is transfered to the tires. accelerate, brake, and turning. a larger bar makes the car more planted. having body roll is what causes offsetting the car from left to right. but having a very large bar could be detrimental to inclement driving. 19mm is not very large. large but not gigantic.

google "sway bays work". they are sometimes called anti-sway bars.
