The ones @Blasirl put up are the upper bars . Im not going to say they do nothing .. just that the lowers do more in my opinion.

I have them both as well as the Whiteline rear sway bar. The rear sway bar is one of the top best mods for this car stock or tuned.

Think of it this way: The Cruze is an inexpensive unibody car. I worked on a robotic welding line for vehicles earlier in my life and I can tell you many times welds are missed or even boogered up. That coupled with maybe being built on a Monday or Friday (think liquid lunch), the possibility exists for a less than idea unibody. The strut bars along with the underbody bars (still speaking about Ultra Racing bars here) basically shore up the body to stiffen it. This much stiffer platform will allow the sway bars to do an even better job at controlling body roll.

The one in the trunk or underneath?

The lower is the best. The upper just adds to it.

I was refering to lower sway bar which is tied to the suspension itself I didnt realize they made a lower strtut bar as well .. I did see what looked like a while frame system from whiteline for the cruze. and yeah your hitch <installing mine tomorrow> would basically negate any of the other rear frame ties I saw from whiteline.

Yes, Ultra Racing makes a rear lower bar. We have one on our Cruze. Didn't do a ton, but I did notice a difference, so it wasn't for nothing.

Definitely isn't a rear swaybar, though.

Back to my build thread: :LOL:

UPDATE: I picked up some goodies from FedEx.

Whiteline Stabilizer Links:

292227


Front Whiteline Stabilizer Bar in a Bag:

292228


The Stabilizer bar is heavier than I expected. Approximately 20lbs.

The other bits and pieces (mounts, isolators, ect) are due to arrive today from GM too.

I found out the expected availability dates of the other parts: The rear Stabilizer Bar and Rear shocks are due in next week The Front Struts are expected to be in the week after that. So, hopefully in 3 weeks I'll be installing the new suspension.

I presume it's a solid bar then, which is good for longevity.

The ZZP front bar I put on my brother's Buick a couple years ago was massively heavy.

I'm assuming it is too. The bars I had on my Cobalt went to the scrapyard along with the car after 8 years of faithful service.

The front stabilizer links I bought are adjustable by about an inch. The rear end of my car doesn't have links. Just a basic fixed axel design.
