Well the front sway bar won't be effected at all with the car being IRS. As for the rear I gots no idea.
Go the Whiteline ones, definately makes the car feel a lot tighter.

swaybars will have the same net effect wether you have irs or live axle. it will make the car sit flatter and have less body roll.

i also recomend whiteline, i have their bars in my car.

also, go fronts and backs, not one or the other.

back only make the car taily, and front only makes the car understeer.

what are white lines worth fitted? I know I can get them for around $200 - $300 respectively but are they hard to fit yourself?

I was thinking about getting some a while back but my pockets were empty, my new springs n shocks go in on friday without new sway bars but I'm still thinking I'd like to put some good quality bars in it.

mate piece of piss to fit. just some of the nuts and bolts need to be "persuaded" to come out. if i can do it, any monkey can. go the whitelines, thats what i got

yeah what Kezz said. if you can spin a spanner you can do this install, one of the most basic ones you can do and very good results. I got a mate with whiteline sway fitted to his IRS AU falc, prolly has a better effect witht e IRS that a live axle.. I would highly recommend this being done.
