Default Sway bars

Dumb questions - but I'm not proud...
Does the PT have a front sway bar?
I know there used to be a rear sway bar, but it got dropped after '02 or '03.
If there's a front, what size is it?
What size was rear?
Bigger bars (fatter) mean less lean, right?
Doesn't hurt ride, right?
[:I]

Thinking of sway bars for my new PT....

Don,
Yes there is still a front sway bar, don't know what size it is but I'm sure someone else will answer that. The size isn't listed in the factory service manual that I know of.
Rear sway bar was done away with on the 2003 PTs.
Yes larger should reduce lean, transfers more energy to the opposite wheel/suspension components.
There have been mixed reviews/opinions about adding a rear sway bar and handling, again, I'm sure someone who as added one will post their results.
BTW- I sent you an email to your Hotmail address, did you get it?

Kinda wish I'd seen this before I signed:

It's in Philly now. I can drive there easily. [:I]
Did all '03 GTs have sunroofs? I know they come standard with them now.

Nope, I didn't want the sunroof due to the reduced headroom. I found a new one with the cloth interior, power drivers seat height adjustment (a waste really) but no sunroof, so I bought it.

Just curious. My 03 Turbo came sans swaybar, which I have since installed. Did DCM take it away on the NA cruiser also?
