anti roll bar thickness for front of classic

hi all, just been looking up what sway bars to purchase. it seems that the front bar comes in two sizes, 24mm and 22mm, (the rear is 22mm). is the 24mm on the front the best to go for??......... tidgy? or anyone with experience in this matter.
rgds, Andrew.

tbh wouldn't bother with the front one, by doing the rear you take out most of the understear, do the front and you dial it back in, stay with the standard one mate

rear end only it is then. you've just saved me some money mate, thanks for the advice.
going to order white line ALK and rear sway, i have rear whiteline drops already. is it worth getting front drop links if a man is on a budget??

done springs a good while back, so that one is in the bag, shocks is a distance pipe dream.
p.s. ordered new ferrodo 2500 pads and vented discs to pick up on monday from godspeed motorsport, oh, and braided lines and dot 5.1. it best make a difference to the braking, cause at present i just don't trust it!

is a geometry set up the same as a wheel alignment, or is it something different? please excuse my lack of knowing.

Wheel allignment = tracking

Geometry settings = suspension setup.
