Front sway bar bolt torque specs needed

Swaybar to side member (M10 1.5)- 48ftlbs

Swaybar to droplink (M10) - 34ftlbs

Droplink to hub carrier (M12) - 63ftlbs

My guess would be the droplink bolt where it attaches to the swaybar is your culprit. This is pretty common and fortunately an easy DIY. I'd recommend loosening off the bolt, then torquing to specs above to make sure it is properly torqued.

Good Luck,

Graeme

How does one access the swaybar bolts? I just lifted my Boxster and did not readily see them.

Are they behind the plastic shielding? I did not remove the wheels.
