Upgrading to larger sway bars with LN Engineering IMS Solution

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 996C2 that I have installed the LN Engineering IMS Solution. This upgrade provides a direct oil feed to the new IMS bearing similar to the Mezgar engines. I recently upgraded my suspension to H&R Street performance coil overs and I am extremely pleased with the upgrade. I also would like to upgrade my sway bars, however LN Engineering warns that a larger sway bar my interfere with the hard oil feed line that is in close proximity to the rear sway bar. My question is if anyone knows of a work around or if there has been a upgrade to this line that would allow me to install a larger diameter rear sway bar?

Depends upon the size and shape of the bar; the 996 sway bar is close to the Solution fitting coming out of the bellhousing.  I'd suggest you measure your clearance with the factory bar in place so you know what you have to play with, and then look at the diameter and position of the bars you are considering.  From experience, some clear and some do not, even when they are from the same manufacturer, so it is a bit of a crap shoot.  Another idea would be to contact your local PCA to see what others have had success with.


Good luck with this one.

Yes, I was just hoping that LN Engineering may have come up with a different line to clear larger bars. I hate to purchase a sway bar set and find out I have clearance issues.

Thanks for the response.




It isn't the line, it is were the fitting exits the bellhousing.  The line is flexible and can be moved, the fitting's exit position is determined by the flange on the rear of the IMS shaft, and cannot be moved.
