Sway bar replacement

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 Boxster 2.7l, manual transmission and I want to replace the front sway bar with a Tarett GT series bar. I know I have to lower the front cross member but it looks like there is a lot of "stuff" attached to it - fuel tank, coolant line and the like. So my question is this, is there enough give in all items attached to cross member so I can lower it down enough to ease the sway bar out? Also, are the bolts that attach the diagonal control arm to the cross member terminate in what is the body of the front boot? This is my first serious project on this car and I don't want it to turn into a disaster so I would welcome any advise.


Where can I find a manual for the 2005's? It looks like Bentley goes through 2004 and that's it.

Okay, it turns out that this project is like the school yard bully. It looks big and intimidating but once you break the first bolt loose it turn into a cream puff. Once the sub-frame is lowered enough to provide good clearance the OEM sway bar rolls right out. The Tarett GT series slides in with little resistance and that's it - your done.


So... next steps. I'm waiting for the coil-overs to arrive - Bilstein B16 (PSS9). Once they are here I'll swap them out for the OEM's, replace the rear sway bar, and we're back on the road.


If your thinking about doing any of the above to your Boxster let me know - I'm more than willing to share what I've learned in the process.
