    So I've been looking around and can't find any real detailed specifications about the 2015/2016 specifications in regards to the sway bars on the Chargers other than it has them.

    The official 2016 Challenger specifications guide states (underlines for emphasis showing differences):
    Front:
    • Independent SLA with high upper “A” arm, coil spring over gas-charged
      ADS Bilstein shock absorbers and 32 mm hollow stabilizer bar, lateral and
      diagonal lower links (SRT 392)
    • Independent SLA with high upper “A” arm, coil spring over gas-charged
      ADS Bilstein shock absorbers and 34 mm solid stabilizer bar, lateral and
      diagonal lower links (SRT Hellcat)
    Rear:
    • Five-link independent with coil springs, link-type 19 mm hollow stabilizer bar,
      gas-charged ADS Bilstein shock absorbers and isolated suspension cradle
      (SRT 392)
    • Five-link independent with coil springs, link-type 22 mm solid stabilizer bar,
      gas-charged ADS Bilstein shock absorbers and isolated suspension cradle
      (SRT Hellcat)
    So my next questions are, has anyone found information on what is on the CHARGER SRT 392? And has anyone taken the thicker solid Hellcat bars & put them on their 392?

    Back from the dead. DId anyone sort this out? Are the 392 SRT Chargers running the softer sways?

    I haven't been able to figure it out (but haven't spent any more time trying to find out either). I went with the Mopar Performance Springs, Mopar Front & Rear Strut Braces. Still would like to get the sways figured out to help level the car in the corners (I have pictures of me getting a wheel off the ground at the track).

    Yes, that was the next logically step was to check the part numbers. If I'm reading your part numbers correct, the Charger uses the same bars for both 392 & Hellcat.

    In terms of the springs, I like them. Just low enough for a little better look without ruining the ride. Here's 2 pictures with the springs on the car. It took about a few 1,000 miles for them to settle after install.

    So looks like the choices for stiffer bars are either challenger front and rear bars or the hotchkis front bar (38mm solid) and the challenger rear bar (22mm solid)

    Petty garage has a 35/22 bars that look to also be adjustable.

    I'm pretty sure the Hotchkis front bar is hollow.
