All,

Curious as to if the non-s with sport suspension has a rear sway bar. It feels like the back end will swing out when I take a spirited drive through a roundabout. Is it just my ass playing tricks on me, or is there a sway bar in the rear somewhere?

I looked under the back but couldn't see anything.

Looking on the RealOEM parts list, it appears that a Cooper with sport suspension does get a rear anti-roll (sway) bar which normal Coopers don't.

But I believe the sports suspension option includes a stiffer front anti-roll bar, so adding one to the rear is likely just maintaining about the same under/over-steer balance that the stock model has.

I wonder how thick the bar is
