my new 07 Ex has twitchy handling, tends to abrupt oversteer, has notable body roll; has been re-aligned

what swaybar options might calm this thing a bit? SI? aftermarket?

I confess I don't have a clue what's under the thing now. :xyxnervou

whats the different sizes mean? the thickness of the bar? and what makes a different sway bar better than stock?
The size is the diameter or thickness of the sway bar.

A sway bar's rigidity(spring rate) is determined by the length of the lever arms(shorter=stiffer), diameter (larger=stiffer), material, mounting scheme.

I have the Si sway bar and it makes a world of a difference in handling without sacrificing ride quality. It's one of the cheapest upgrades that you can actually feel.
