Park the car on a smooth safe surface. Use vehicle hoist or floor jack, raise the onto jack stands. NEVER WORK UNDER THE CAR SUPPORTED BY A JACK ONLY.





Disconnect the endlinks use 14mm wrench.



Remove swaybar bushing brackets then remove the sway bar.





Grease bushings using supplied grease and place them on the swaybar.





Install the new swaybar.Connect the endlink first but not tight. Install bushing brackets around bushings and secure bar to the chassis. Tighten bolts to(Perrin site) 24ft-lbs.

When bar is mounted move the bar up and down to make sure grease lubricates entire bushing.

Tighten endlink to 24ft-lbs. Re-check all connections.



Lower the car.

Test drive slowly. If there is any new noises (i.e. clunks, squeaks, etc.) Re-check entire installation. Enjoy but be safe.

Some info are from Perrin site.

I'm going to invest next time I am home. I didn't know that they were that simple to install.

Thanks for the write-up!

Middle setting. No noise at all, as long as the bushing is fully greased. Tighten all those bolts to 24, actually I went up to maybe 28.

2 things:

1. How the hell is your car that dirty, I know you have OCD when it comes to cleaning your car!

2. You should have gotten a bigger rear bar if you wanted to FEEL the difference.

Go big or go home...:thumbup:



I have a sneaky suspicion you only chose those because they are painted red...

Dude, you were right, this thing added so much oversteer, I can now dial out some of my other suspension stuff, i.e., toe, camber, etc. It is like driving on ice now. I got so many complements on how the car rotates after just doing the rear bar. :dancebanana:

Yeah, it felt so much better than the stock bar. I was actually amazed when I installed it

Aside from installing my coil-overs it was the single most noticeable improvement suspension wise. Front bar didn't really do much, did 2 events on it with the rear stocker and noticed zero difference in handling. I wish I would have just done the rear...

Maybe it was in my head then. I never did an event with one or the other. I had both installed and then did events.

Race slicks make another HUGE difference

So much so that an alignment is necessary after?

If you do add the info in that ^ link ak, I'll gladly create an "official" how-to out of this. Thanks! :)
I didn't do the install.

Red, I should get Perrin too. For Autocross King like you with coilover suspension, you need 32mm. For sure there will be difference even it is only 25mm.
