What's the best alternative to a stock rear swaybar?

But not to include MAJOR modification. What are my options?

I am running BBK uppers & lowers (for now). Stock rear springs, with a coil cut out. Adj Strange shocks.

Or do I even have a need for something better than stock sway bar? How will I know....?

Basicly you want to keep the body roll out of the car when it launches. So keep the stock sway are on there, it helps. The best after the sway bar is the anti roll bar, thats a weld in deal. Most of the time, this requires the tail pipes to be removed. The next best is the air bag. and strange 10 ways.

I think he meant the next best thing to a air bag is a anti-roll bar. Air bag is very cheap and easy to do, especially for a street car.

Is there a common brand air bag. Or supplier? Where would I begin to find it?
