When you have 2 sway bars and the only difference is the diameter you take the bars size to the 4th power ie. 24^4 = 24x24x24x24. Now that is how you take bars that are exactly the same in material and size just diameter is different. Now the eibach could be made from a different material but the calculation still helps give a simple comparison.

Where did you get that calculation? I've done all sorts of sway bar rate comparison and I've never seen that one before.

As far as I know everyone uses that lol.

I've seen it that way and (new/old)^4. For example (26mm/24mm)^4. Don't really know how accurate they are. I know you can calculate them by the length, circumference, and all the other measurements. I think someone came up with the others for a quick comparison.

Nope. Never saw it. Not bad for a quick comparison.

I think it's only good for comparing solid for solid and the same dimensions just different thickness. Otherwise with hollow you have to subtract the diameter from the wall thickness or something like that for hollow bars. Never had a hollow bar so never had to worry about it.

The most noticable difference I have felt with my steering was when i had the wheels cambered a bit. The car felt like it was on rails. Addco is the thickest sway bar available, but the eibach should be good. 1mm makes a diffence.

addco is thicker than the eibach
