H&R Sway bars - anyone installed?

I am looking at the set on ECS tuning site:

- 26mm front
- 22mm rear

Anyone installed? Mostly AX and some track days. Have lowered with the H&R springs as well.

Would be interested in your opinion and experience!!

Never used them myself but others have said "too much bar!" YMMV

The boxster spec setup is a GT3 front bar with Tarret drop links and a tarret rear bar.
Another popular option is the ROW M030 swaybars.

I ran the H&R rear bar on full soft with the stock suspension & liked it, but I prefer an oversteer setup. Still running it with the GT3 front bar & ksport coilovers, but I'm going to move it up to at least half stiff for the next event.

I installed a set of H+R bars while my suspension was totally stock, it was ok for AutoX on street tires.

Now Im running a square setup on 4 17X9 wheels with slicks, K sport coilovers, and -3.0 camber front and rear. I cant seem to dial out the annoying oversteer... not the nice drift kind, but the one where you have to back off and counter-steer in a fast corner because the rear is coming around for no reason. I feel like its holding me back from faster times.

Im going back to the stock rear bar to see if it helps.
