Would like to hear about any experiences after you made changes and what changes were and how they affected your ride.
Adding the Helwig sway bar to pre-2019 (2019 and earlier Wayfarers) seems to help a lot. But, the sway bar on the 2019+ chassis (2020 and later Wayfarers) is already an upgraded, beefier bar so it won't make much, if any difference. You already have Sumo springs (actually stroke limiters) but you might consider going to the heavier duty ones, at least in the rear.
I've heard some mixed reviews on shock replacement but using some "stiffer" shocks would seem to be the most appropriate change to limit the gas station/ shopping center body roll.
It seems to me that many people, having spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on suspension changes tend to over-hype the improvements. It's human nature I guess. I followed a guy out of a rally early last year that sprang for shocks, sumos, and a new sway bar on a 2020RW. It looked to me like his rolled just as much as my stock unit as we moved along the bumpy and uneven exit path.
