Front sway bar

So as I'm thinking my slave cylinder is taking a poop in my viggen and I've never done the clutch in it. I bought it with 100k now has 128k. When I drop the subframe to replace the clutch and everything would it be beneficial for me to put in the bigger front sway bar I have laying around from a parts car. Its a 26mm I believe and the stock is something like 22mm. I've got a 25mm in the back lowered on konis and eibachs poly bushings 6pt that's it for suspension. Stock strut bar will eventually get the GS one, but just haven't yet and a 3pt rear bar.

Making the front stiffer will increase understeer, so there might not be a huge benefit. I think the Viggen/SE front bars were made intentionally smaller...

Can someone verify that, or correct me if I'm wrong?

Not a clue on the sizes but like stated increasing the front will increase understeer.

I kept the oem stock front sway bar and upgraded the rear along with koni spring/shocks.

Fwiw I thought the front upper and rear braces were totally worth the money

Ok sounds like I'll be keeping the stock size sway bar in there. I know when I but the sas bars on my 9k it was a night and day difference but totally different chassis. I'll just put some poly bushings in the sway bar mounts while its down.
