M030 sway bars only?


Recommended Posts

I am considering only adding the M030 sport suspension sway bars but not the springs to my '02 2.7 Tip. Wife and I both like the current ride but I could use a little less lean. Has anyone tried this setup and if so what are the pros & cons if any? Which dealer has the best prices on these items? I notice that Eibach has 24mm frt. & 19mm rear and H&R has 26mm frt. & 22mm rear. How much stiffer than the M030 Porsche bars and would they be worth the extra money?

I have also decided to keep my 17" wheels rather than switch to 18", at least at this point. Thanks for any insight and suggestions.

the M030 sways are great with the stock springs. they are also quite comfy (they passed the woman test). the H&R will be way too stiff if you like the current ride; they're more geared toward motorsports. eibach is similar to the M030. i recommend the 'S' M030 front bar (24mm) and the base M030 rear bar (19.6mm). they are cheapest from Sunset Imports (around $215 for BOTH sways and BOTH sets of bushings).

Thanks, I was wondering if the H&R might be too stiff so your suggestions will be followed. Thanks again.

Well just to finish this thread off, I had the 24mm front and 19.6mm rear sway bars installed as per recommendation and I must admit the handling and lack of lean in corners is astonishing. Stock springs & shocks and still on 17" wheels and the ride quality has not been compromised. I highly recommend it.

Are the 986S M030 bars a direct bolt-on on all 986s ? (2.5, 2.7, and 3.2)

the M030 bars for 986 are all interchangable. the trick setup is the 'S' M030 front with the base M030 rear.

Insite: I have 01 S Tip and I heard that Tip cars already have M030 sways in the back? I'm currently in the middle installing Eibach Pro springs and I might have a possibility to get M030 S front sway, would that work? Do you think that I should change rear sway to non-S M030?

Thanks,

Jake
