Thanks for including Hap's description of his RSB.
Do you know how he is measuring anti roll force? His units are wrong, but
likely he means the stock 17mm bar has a spring rate of 331 lb/in. measured
at the link attachment point/radius? If so, or even if not so, the "HRSB"
at 125, 140 and 155 lb/in apparently is much softer in roll resistance than
is the stock S4 bar! Why such a design?
