Hello guys,

Im going to get a 27mm front swaybar (whiteline, non-adjustable) put onto my Falcon AUII Forte Sedan (Non - IRS)

I was wanting to know if this was ok by itself and shouldnt induce too much understeer?

Also, if I go for the 22mm rear (whiteline, non-adjustable) as well, will this cause too much oversteer or make the car unhandleable in the wet? Esp on freeways...

If i get the 22mm rear sway bar on this car, will I need mounting braces?

Does anyone know what the original diameter of the AU falcon 2 forte rear sway bar was?

I know i have a few questions, but any help will be great... Thanks heaps

AU's with a live axle had a 23mm sway bar....and they are tubing, not solid like previous models, with were 22mm. A stock one from an EA was 22mm.
I have a 32mm front ( adjusted to stiffest setting ), and a 27mm rear.
I also strengthened the outer sway bar link brackets on the rear, as they will crack.......*note*...added pieces are on the front of the brackets, as the bar enters the rear of the brackets.
Food for thought.

i have just put a 27mm in the front of mine and a 22mm in the rear of mine and they are fine on theyre own, it got rid of heaps of the body roll you can feel in these boat like vehicles.



184 rwkw with more to go!
