    (1998 SE sedan; pending disk rears (incase that matters; I dunno if it does or not))

    Same or no? ...and given which ever donor car I scalp; EXACTLY what parts should I get for better suspension (anything from the front; other things from the rear)?

    *Pics and/or links would be greatly appreciated*

    The ZX2 front swaybar is bigger than the 3rd gen sedan front swaybar?

    I also thought the EGT bar was the same size as the wagon.

    I'm also thinking about changing my rear sway bar, but have heard the EGT/wagon was not the best choice for my ZX2. What would be best 91-97 sedan or the EGT/wagon for a ZX2?

    The bigger the RSB the better for a FWD car. So, the 21mm EGT/wagon bar is what you want. I assume they were referring an aftermarket bar as being the best for your Zx2(all Escorts really). If you dont mind dropping the coin then an aftermarket bar is the best. I think the biggest aftermarket bar is 22mm and is pretty hard to find.
