Guys what is difference between the sway bar that is mounted on the lower arm vs. the one that is mounted on the shocks?
Sway bar that is mounted on the arm is 18mm while the one that is mounted on the shocks is 16mm.

It'll be due to the difference in leverage between the 2 different mounting methods i.e. when mounting to the lower arm arm the effective arm length must increase so a larger bar is required to have the same effect as the smaller strut mounted sway bar. I'd say the 2 bars would be very similar overall.

Drop links mounted on the struts are also more efficient as they can be longer so deviate from the thrustline far less. The struts move up and down in a far more linear way than the bottom arms which move through a pronounced arc which means the drop links put quite a side loading into their mounts which can lead to suspension binding and premature wear of the drop links. Ball joint type drop links are far better than the rubber bushed type at taking these loads but drop links from the struts are a preferable way of mounting them.
