The 3.8 has a 1.04in. tubular bar, while the 96 sport has a 1.06in. solid bar. The 1.04in. tubular bar has the same effectiveness as a smaller solid bar. So, yes there will be some difference, but probably not enough to warrant a change. I would suggest the 1 1/8 addco bar or an '89 SC rear bar instead.
