    Its red, but is indeed pretty meaty, my dad picked it up and said it was the thickest sway bar he ever saw. Should be able to take off ramps at 130mph now. :lol:

    According to saleen mine is 1 3/8" diameter or 34mm, and for comparison, the stock 94 bar is 30mm and is around 60%+ softer than the tublar Saleen bar. The 94 Cobra bar is actually 25mm and weaker than the GT bar. Not sure which company makes a blue one, can you take a picture of it?

    Ok, installed the bar yesterday, and holy mother of jasephine, that thing is amazing! Before I could do 10 above the suggested posted speed for turns, now I can do nearly double that limit. I took a 25 mph off ramp at 45 yesterday, and I wasn't even pushing it. Its a whole new car and well worth the extra few pounds and the $75 I spent. I highly recommend to all of you that you get one if the opportunity arises. It is definetly worth it.
