Which would handle better a swaybar or coilovers?

I was wondering if I could get some input on things I could do to get a Revolt to handle more like a Honda Pilot. I have tried a swaybar. The swaybar has a 700# torsion spring and it still did not get the handling I was looking for. I have heard the Elka coilovers help the handling too but don't want to spend the money if it isn't going to make a big difference. Has anyone driven a revolt with coilovers that could compare them to a Pilot? I am looking for the stability a pilot has. I just love the way I can pitch the pilot aroundand it does not feel like it wants to flip. It steers so much better than the Revolt. I am willing to try anything to get it to pivot on a dime like a Pilot. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Coil overs will help I have the elkas on my XL and it is a night and day difference from the fox shocks better handling and no more 3 wheel driving , The elkas take some work valving and spring rates according to the previous owner he said they were to stiff at first and he made many changes witch worked the car is awesome on the track and landings are amazing it lands no bottom out and no rebound it just lands and goes..

If your car is not handling right with the sway bar and you cannot pitch it around you have other issues. I suggest you start messing with alignment.
I have had an 800, 700 and now a #600 bar all of them let me drift into, through and out of any corner I choose. I can back into corners on pavement even and power through on boost.

Revolts are known for poor geometry. Check front and rear.

Coilovers would surely improve the performance of your suspension and handling, but just be sure to choose the correct spring rate.
