swaybar TSB??? Loren?


Recommended Posts

Does anybody have any information about a TSB concerning the torque values for the bolts that attach the swaybars to the chassis? Apparantly it is done to prevent a clunking sound from the suspension and seems to occur after track days.

:drive:

TIA

The Carrera TSB (5/00 4078 Loose Stabilizer Bar Connection - dated 9-1-01) does not state the torque just that they need to be re-torqued to factory specs. There is not a GT3 TSB for swaybars (at this point in time).

Front Stabilizer mount on stabilizer (M10) -- 34 ft-lbs.

Rear Stabilizer mount to stabilizer and spring strut (M10) -- 34 ft-lbs., GT3 -- 48 ft-lbs.

Rear Stabilizer to carrier side section (M8) -- 17 ft-lbs.

Edit - added second torque setting for GT3 only.

Heard a distinct "popping" noise from my rear suspension while going over speed bumps at an angle. Got under the car today and sure enough the left side stabilizer mount nut (15mm) was loose. Not only was it loose but it had already worked itself about half way off of the remaining threads. It went from loose to that in less than 25 miles of driving. I'm going to climb back under there tomorrow with some loctite and the torque wrench. Definitely something to keep an eye on-

Here's a link to the parts diagram. The culprit was #6 (M10) http://www.pelicanparts.com/PartsLookup/HT...1-03-Frame3.htm
