997 Rear Sway Bar Recommendations


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a stock 2008, 997 with 19" rims, K&N Filter and that's about it. I am tired of understeer and was reading some other posts about several options for increasing the handling or at least making the handling neutral by installing larger rear sway bars via a website and via GT3 types.

I went to the MillaRacing.com website but only found a list of their suppliers' websites.

There were several sites I found on my own but then they had some bad feedback...

Has anyone any expererience in selecting rear sway bars? Can you recommend one?

Thanks,

Ken

I bought an H&R rear sway bar and shaved off 5 seconds

at Thunderhill Raceway. Here is the H&R site.

I found a local dealer and I think this is his site.

I bought some drop links for $275. Here is a site with drop links

for $202.

Do get some new drop links because the stock ones look like

they will not do the job.

Have fun and good luck. The H&R rear sway bar and the alignment

for track use made the track so much more fun.

You're going to laugh. I just called Livermore Performance and they told me that two other guys bought 'rear only sway bars' and are not happy. One was a Boxster owner and one was a Cayman owner. Not funny yet but keep reading.... They received the advice from a forum and they later discovered that the person making the recommendation had front aftermarket sway bars as well.

The person from Livermore was recommending that I either get front and rear or nothing since rear only would produce too much oversteer.

Major question: Do you have front aftermarket sway bars?

I'm going back to analysis paralysis mode.

Thanks,

Ken

Ken,

I only have a H&M rear sway bar. I have a picture at turn 8

at Sears that shows the right front wheel up in a turn without

the swaybar. The rear sway bar will tighten things up and should

be able to help keep the fronts on the ground.

I did not install a front sway bar because you need to

remove the radiator hoses to get to the front sway bar

mounts. The difficult part is sucking the air out of the hoses

before you refill them.

The rear sway bar is easy to install and it worked for me.
