Front Sway Bar Size

Upon measuring my front sway bar it appears that it is the 24mm bar. Is this correct? I figured for the performance model they would've gone with the bigger 26mm bar. Anyone know if the 24mm bar is the correct bar and/or the reasoning behind the smaller bar?

Think that is right. The standard ion is like a 22 or 23 I think.

Any thoughts as to why they put the bigger bar on standard V6 vues and the smaller bar on the Redline?

Because handling is adversely affected by a stiffer front sway bar.

Sounds like you are confirming my original suspicions that they went with the smaller front sway bar to make the front and rear bars more equally proportioned thus reducing the understeer affect that most cars have. Am I right?
