STOP IT? NO. Seriously reduce it - yes, and in many instances it's completely unnoticeable. There have been a bunch of us who have installed the Hellwig - all report a marked improvement in handling, in sway induced by passing trucks, steering on crowned roads, etc. It's a simple install, and relatively inexpensive. I can't speak to how it affects towing, but if your tow setup tends to have a "tail wagging the dog" effect, I would think it would help with that! I've never noticed a difference in handling (other than braking) when towing.
If you know someone with a Solera who has installed the Hellwig bar, see if you can drive theirs out on the highway and compare to yours without. You'll be surprised how much difference it makes!
