sway bar question

Does a bigger sway bar make a difference ? I am converting my truck over to coil spring. I have and 05-07 dwr front sway bar which the diameter is not very big. I have looked at other dwr front bars and some are bigger and others smaller or the same size that I have. The 04 leaf spring suspension sway bar( which I cant use) that I will be removing is bigger. Just wondering is it worth the money for a bigger bar? thanks

The larger sized bars will combat body roll more but I would run the one you have first and see how you like the way it handles. If it seems to lean into turns and your shocks are good then think about changing it.
My guess is it will do fine.

^^^ I agree.

Go with what you have now. Upgrade to bigger sway bar if the current one doesn't perform to your liking.

The Helwig bar made a BIG difference on my 2006.
