I have the Suspension Techniques 25mm rear bar on my 4000. I had also
upgraded the front bar to an Urquattro bar (an increase from 21mm to
24mm). This, along with Eibach Pro-Kit springs and Koni sport shocks
gives the 4000 great handling. There is no 2-stage behavior and the
cornering limit is very high (some of my passengers get scared sh*tless
when I take some of the corners at speed :-)).
The 4000 FWD and Coupe suspensions are virtually identical, so the same
story should apply. The S-T bars for these cars, as Mike says, are
difficult to find now.
Urquattro front bars can still be found via the dealer, so that may be
a worthwhile upgrade for 4000/coupes in itself. Without some additional
roll stiffness in the rear to compensate, though, there may be an increase
