Sway Bar Recommendations

I have been looking into suspension mods. I have searched Google and the forums and as usual there is a whole lot of d measuring that makes it hard for us "learners" to figure out wth is what.

I have Tein Street Basis Zs. I do spirited driving and some AutoX from time to time.

I am on 18x9.5 all around and probably lowered 1-1.5" to eliminate wheel gap.

I am looking at my next set of mods and I was wanting to tackle the suspension.

Are there any recommendations for sway bar (front and rear) to match up with the coilovers and wheels? I was thinking of going up in size only slightly and considering adjustable bars so I have some options.

Obviously, I want to improve the handling for AutoX and/or spirited driving.

If there are other recommendations to go along (like rear end links etc), please let me know.

Thank you for any responses!

What kind of tires do you use?

Anything specific you'd like to improve?

Add camber, especially in the front. Zero toe all around. Then figure out what balance you want from there and use swaybars to adjust.

Right now I am on some cheapos that I got just to throw on the wheels when I purchased. They didn't have any of the tires I was looking for at the time of purchase.

What @swarb said there is no correct answer, only driver preference.

As swarb said, alignment is super important.

I'm not sure swaybars are a good next step for you just yet.
