View Full Version : Strut/Sway Bars

07-04-2004, 11:13 PM
I'm thinking about adding one or both for either front or rear but have a few questions?

1) Either loaded stock?
2) Which is better, strut or sway?
3) Possible Configurations?
4) Makes and Models?
5) Possible problems?

Best bet = 19mm neuspeed rear sway bar. I've found that neuspeed makes good suspension components. Don't get anything much bigger in the rear or you risk damaging the subframe.

If you have the sport suspension, there's not much of a point in getting a front sway bar, but if you don't neuspeed makes one also.

I suggest H-sport (hotchkiss) sway bars. They sell a complete bar package for ~$450. They have the better design, Tubular, than neuspeed. Neuspeed still uses solid core.

Sway bars are much more beneficial than strut bars. They did start using a front strut bar from the factory at some point though (I think in 2001 maybe).

does the H-sport rear bar have a reinforced bracket like neuspeed? i've been looking for some sways too.

When I added the lltek strut bar, I could not really see any better structural rigidity and I really pushed it too. I'll be trying the rear sway bar, probably the tubular one.

Anybody ever seen H&R sway bars? I have heard good things about them but have never seen them for sale.
