Chris, you can really tell that big a difference over the beefed up SRT bars?? I couldn't imagine 3 or 5mm would be noticeable. Also, did you install yourself & if so, how difficult (time wise also). If not, what was charge to install? Thanks.

I had a dealer install my sway bars. They quoted and charged me $256, but they made it clear afterwords that it took them a lot longer then they expected.

It was a challenge finding someone willing and able to install my bars.

Big O said they could do it for $200. They even looked at my car a week earlier. I drop it off the following week, and 45 minutes later they call me at home to say they can't do the rears because they don't have the correct stand to support the "K-bar".

I then take my car to a large Goodyear tire/service shop and they said they didn't want to install them because they were not qualified.

Another shop wouldn't install my sways unless I bought the sways from them.

Another Chrysler dealer wouldn't do the install because they don't install aftermarket products.

I brought the car to 3 other shops that all said they would have to put her up on the stand to give me a quote on the install, and whether they thought they could do it.

It appears it takes at least 3 hours - 2hrs for the rear, and 1hr for the front.

I really can't notice much difference with the new sways. Maybe I just don't drive enough twisty roads. But taking those sweeping freeway exits/onramps doesn't feel much different either. IMO, the cost of the sways/install is fairly steep for the small added improvement. But if you have the money and want every little bit of extra performance, then go with the sways.

Below is a pic off the net of the rear sway bar.
