So you are comparing them to the LPT bars right?

9-5 Front and Rear Sway Bar Kit
Item #: 01-305
9-5 1999-2006 Road testing and fitment are complete and what a difference. This is larger than even the Aero. 1" (25mm) Front and 7/8" (22mm) Sway Bar with mounting kit & instructions. Even with the taller tires on the base models the car feels flat and predictable in cornering. Body lean is substantially reduced for a remarkable ride. AVAILABLE NOW

Wink No I am comparing it to the aero bars

I upgraded my LPT roll bars to aero bars about 4 years ago ( & replaced with new stock rubber bushings.
When SAS came out with the new enlarged roll bars, I was #1 or #2 to purchase. I also replaced all bushings with poly bushings ( not only the new SAS bushings.
All I can say, it is amazing to watch my coffee flow up the side a my clear plastic cup ( filled well below max) during a high speed on ramp turn & get absolutely no body roll.

Powerflex makes them in the UK - not sure who sells them in the USA

If you buy SAS swaybars why will supply their own bushings for the rollbar however the rest all all worth doing is you are looking for min roll in corners.

Well - I would buy them but elkparts is not US based so shipping would be a deal killer.

I know how they are - I have them on my 9000

Hey guys, I was wondering if people who have the SAS bars would give me an update on how they fell about them. If you could include what the rest of your suspension consists of, I'd greatly appreciate that as well. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on some major suspension work on my car. I'm getting tried of flopping around corners.
