Rear sway bar

Any recommended? My buddy mentioned doing the front for cornering and the rear for at least launching. I plan on doing my suspension this week new struts shocks sway bar links. He said I should add bigger sway bars. Another question I am going with factory spec on suspension for basic street hot ridding and maybe occasional strip use that seem ok? Anything going to benefit a quarter mile that cost a little extra I should consider before I replace them

I know if you run no sway bar on the front its better for launching.

Upgrade to the 1LE setup. You can go aftermarket but it can get pricey. Really depends on what you want to do and how much money you're looking to spend.

Is that 1le from the newer ones? I'm a learning Camaro enthusiast. Does it take any modding or is it just plug and play for the 94.

1LE by definition

Although that link doesn't offer help on the sway bar combo.
32mm was the front bar, 21mm was the rear until 1994.
However 32/19 will work just fine. Most WS6/SS models have that combo, but not necessarily all of them. All 1LE cars are WS6 or SS models, but not all WS6/SS cars are 1LE.

However, there's a seller (or two) on eBay that sells 32mm bars (often brand new) for relatively cheap. The rear 19mm bar can be had off of most any 4th gen V8 car for usually cheap as well.

Now I have a 94 z28 5.7. Do you think this came with those already? Or are you referring the SS from the newer models? And they would be a direct replacement I take it?

I read the link and kinda get it. So it was a factory upgrade made available so it should bolt up but I have a 94 with AC so I don't think I have those already. And mine is an auto so less likely. Let me know if you can find the link on eBay to an auction for a set. I'm trying to find them I just don't know enough to track down the right one.

This isn't a link.. Links aren't available via mobile .. But it is a pic of an auction on eBay for the 1LE front sway bar. I searched "1LE Camaro sway bar" and found it.. There are only 2 on there .. And a used 3rd gen set

Only way to see what you have is to measure them.
Naturally, it'd bolt right on.

I wouldn't pay $90 for one bar either. At that rate, you might as well buy aftermarket.
