Stiffer sway bars do NOT increase grip. They actually increase weight transfer to the outside wheels which reduces max grip.

Their benefits are 1) reducing body motion for better repsonsiveness/communication from the chassis (this is an important characteristic for me so I went with the Hotchkis set) and 2) adjustable sways can help drivers dial in over/understeer by controlling weight transfer on each axle. Stiffer bars=more weight transfer=less grip on axle in question.
