    All cars have anti-sway bars, usually the stock ones are not very stiff so that you car rides smoothly (smooth and comfortable does not equal fast). If you want to upgrade your suspension it would be a good idea to get aftermarket anti sway bars that are thicker (thicker ones=less body roll) and also get strut braces and a lowering kit to completely transform your car into a good handling machine.

    thanks for all the help!
    BIG car, don't take the anti-roll bars off

    Best advise woudl be to spend time in the Volvo parts counter or a Volvo club and find out the T5 suspension settings and a-r bar thicknesses and try sourcing them. I've followed a T5 on track 4 passengers and REALLY pushing it - a fast, well balanced car for something that big and practical

    http://www.kalmar-union.com/ click on suspension. Pay for my flight and I'll hand deliver

    Anti-roll bars not too hard to make as long as you have a samle. Problems can come when you try to use standard steel bar and it's thicker than current mounts, maybe needing even more engineering. Local steel fabricators can help , but getting control over the stiffness isn't that easy and will likely involve a few attempts. Buying off the shelf is easier
