With sway bars, bigger isn't always better. The stiffer the sway bar, the less "independent" an independent suspension becomes (ie, it starts to act more and more like a solid axle). You can also make handling worse by combining too much bar with too little tire. Sway bars aren't meant to be the primary method of controlling body roll, that's best done with springs and to some degree the dampers. Sway bars should be used as the final level of fine tuning a suspension's balance. Springs, dampers, roll bars, and tires must all be selected carefully in order for them to work together properly.
