I hope you all are enjoying the dumb questions that I have. I got more!

1) What are the opinions on running sway bars? Run front and rear, front only, no bars at all?

2) What type of stagger is best used?
a) LF to RF comparison
b) LR to RR comparison
c) front to rear comparison

Thanks for any replies!

the swaybays you can tune with them but they don't have alot of effect i have a swaybar on my car but it's not hooked up. as for stagger it depense on how you want to change the handleing myself i don't like to run alot of stagger on the rear i have seen doing this tear up rear end gears before so i always try to stay with in an inch or two on the rears as for the front i run about 4-6 inches taller on the rf
