Post 18mm Rear Antisway bar

I'm looking for an 18mm rear antisway bar. The only thing I can find is 20mm and 21mm. Any leads?

Hey, why don't you get a whiteline adjustable bar. Then you can keep it at 18, and then adjust it to your preferance.

Get the 20mm or larger adjustable. The 18mm will have you looking for "more bar" before you know it!

I just installed Ground Control AGX/Eibach adjustable setup on my 5-door. I have an 18mm rear bar. How will changing to a 20mm affect the handling? From the above it sounds like the way to go. Why?

In any case, I may have an SPD 18mm bar for sale.

Do a search on swaybars, and you will find many discussions on the pro's and con's of bigger swaybars.

I totally recommend using a bigger bar than stock, vast improvement in the car's handling, but...

In short, 18 mm bar is recommended for stock suspensions, 20 mm (or more) for stiffer suspensions. The problems with the bigger bar are in inclement weather. In the rain or snow, the back end may slide out too easily. If you search, you'll find many warnings (and some wrecks) about using a big bar in bad weather.
