Putting in an order for some front suspension parts today, and I just want to make sure I have the correct sway bar bushings. I believe it is these, but since GT2 is in parenthises I'm not sure if they actually mean it is for a turbo or not. Can anyone tell for sure? http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/smart/more_info.cgi?pn=996-343-792-16-M100&catalog_description=&Front%2520Sway%2520Bar%2520Bushing%252C%2520Stock%2520Rubber%2520%2528%2532%2520per%2520car%252C%2520sold%2520individually%2529%252C%2520%2539%2539%2536%2520GT%2533%2520%2528%2531%2539%2539%2539%252D%2530%2535%2529%252C%2520each%2520 And for my front suspension overhaul, I'm attacking the following: Main control arms Control arm links sway bar bushing Recently did tie rods and sway bar end links. Should I add anything else to the list while I'm in there? Thanks, Connor
Hi everyone Well took my car out a few times this spring, and one day when pulling into my parking lot at work I hear a bang! Was not sure what it was but when I left work I was backing up and heard some scraping. I look underneath and my rear sway bar snapped between the bushing and the wheel on passenger side I have never personally seen a sway bar snap, but when I had it taken off, it had been broken halfway for a while. I bought the car couple years ago, and it is stored during the winter. I decided to go with Eibach front and rear kit, since the car is a 2001, decided to give it an upgrade. Has anyone done this upgrade, and what are your thoughts I have to wait 10 days to get the parts as no one stocks them, but look forward to driving it again,
Hi all Finally decided to do the clutch. Raised the back of the car and removed plastic covers - all good so far. Then tried to remove the sway bar to fit an engine support brace. The bolts holding the sway bar bushes to the subframe all eventually sheared off - even with WD40, tapping with a hammer and heat. It's really frustrating to hit this kind of problem on step 1 of the process! So now I think the only solution is to remove the subframes and get them to a machine shop to have the bolts drilled out. The manual I have doesn't cover subframe removal. Is there anything to watch out for or can I just undo all the bolts? Any thoughts or guidance much appreciated. Thanks Andy
