Default Will sway bars really help?

I was thinking of getting sway bars for my Street Force GP.

There are two available, 1.8mm and 2mm

Are they just for the rear, or could they be installed up front as well? If both, then 1.8/1.8, 2.0/2.0 1.8/2.0, 2.0/1.8? If it's just the rear that is possible, then the thicker or thinner one?

thank you,
dan

You should install both. Put the stiffer one on the front. It will make a big difference depending on the setup of the rest of the car.

remember the rule with swaybars is that they improve handling at the OPPOSITE end of the car. In other words, a front sway bar increases rear traction at a small cost to front traction, and vice versa.
