Eibach discontinued the uprated anti-roll bars a while ago, but Whiteline do a beefier bar (something like 22-24mm).

With the state of the roads, you want suspension that will have some travel in it - being able to put the power down mid-turn, safe braking and more importantly good handling are all reliant on your wheels touching the ground.
If the suspension's stiff, you'll be skipping over bumps in the road.


whiteline front one is 27mm rear is 24mm.
