Okay, I have given myself a brief education on sway bars and I believe that the best set ups are: F-Body(2nd Gen) FRONT and HA Sway Bar in the rear; OR HO Front Sway Bar and HA Rear... AM I RIGHT?

Yup... (note that the HA rear bar and the HO rear bar are basically identical).

The Setup with the HO front will tend slightly toward understeer while the F-body front setup will be dead neutral.

Sorta, and yes, respectively...

I think it's $179 and they do sell it.

Thanks Knightshade, you happen to know if it comes with mounting hardware, or is it best to follow Scott M's article for install part numbers.

ThankSS

I have the F-bar myself from NPD so I don't know for sure... I know the rear HA/HO bar from Malibu did not come with any hardware though.

I bought the HO specialties front bar last year and it came with bushings,new end links
an everything to install except the bolts for
the bushing brackets. Got them from totally
stainless. Installed with blue locktite, no
problems since 20K miles. except for some
occasional popping noises at full lock when
parking or turning in to a drive way.
