The car will sway a little bit more with a 4 cyl. bar. In road racing the Mustang guys will usually switch to a 4 cyl. bar in the rain because it is a little softer.

I'm running one now on my car and it does seemed to have helped front end grip a bit. Turn in was nice and sharp at the last auto-x I ran a few weeks back. I went the 4cyl route at Max Motorsport's suggestion - I also have their adjustable rear bar waiting to go on the car at some point.

Note I have a lot of other suspension mods. Not sure how this would do on a relatively stock car.

Well, if you dont have your stock bar, the 4 cyl bar will definitely help. For me, I want a four cylinder bar just for the reasons Patrick Olsen stated. I am using 400# coil-overs and feel I will have enough wheel rates. A lighter swaybar should increase my front grip.

Oh, I missed that you didn't have a front sway bar at all! Anything will help in that case, and the 4cyl bar is probably better than getting another stock bar anyway, so go for it.

Another front bar worth checking into would be from a 83-84 GT. I had read that these bars measure 28.6 mm. Not quite as soft as the 4 cyl. bar but softer than your stock bar.

where do you guys buy your 4cyl bars???I cant find anyone local (like a Junk yard or something) that will sell me used GT bars.
I want something slightly smaller then my cobra front swaybar to get a little more front grip, and the GT bar is approx ~15% less stiff.
