  • Aftermarket rear swaybar

    Ok, I have been busy buying all my suspension shit before I start the motor and turbo. Only thing left to buy is the SPS SOHC sway bar bracket kit and a swaybar. well, they stopped selling the swaybars. So does anyone know where I can buy that 4 way 17.5mm adjustable one?
    I already have the factory bar sitting in my shed, is there enough gain between the factory bar and the 4way 17.5mm bar to even worry about it?

    Depends on what you want to do. I use the 17.5 mm sway bar but it's on the car for autocrossing. The four adjustments make quiet a difference. If you set it to full hard, the rear will come around on you like a RWD. I had her do a 180 on me on the way to work one morning, taking a corner (right after I adjusted to full).

    I have a 17.5 laying at the shop but I am pretty sure it's spoken for, let me ask my friend if he still wants it. ( I pulled it off a car at the junkyard last year). If not, I will let you know but I am pretty sure he still wants to install it.

      let me know bro, I'm interested in it for sure. Will I need the sps brackets reinforced if I were to set it to full hard?
      my suspension setup is:
      4 monroe sensa-trac struts
      coilovers
      front strut tower bar
      17x7 wheels
      205/40r17 nankang ns-1 tires

      I just want it to handle good, and I beat the living shit outta the car everyday, every time I drive it. If setting it to full hard will make the ass come around on me, that just adds to the fun [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_twisted.gif[/img]

        Yeah Ive heard the 17.5 to be really aggressive. I believe there are 2 16mm adj by sps up for grabs over @ tsn

          you shouldn't need them reinforced with those tires. the back end will come around long before you get to full hard, tho. i wouldn't worry too much about bracing until you get a better suspension. your car just won't generate that kind of lateral load...

            Yeah, don't sweat the bracing until you get the Progress 19MM monster. Jon2001sc2 put one on his car and within a week of just street drivin' it cracked the rear in half!! We went to the junkyard and pulled another, then welded thick steel strips across it to make it real strong. So far, it's holding up, but he has not raced it on a course yet.
