Front Swaybars
« on: Apr 6, 2011, 10:46PM »
I rang whiteline today to see if they could make me a sway bar... they used to do them. Seems they throw out their jigs when they discontinue a item. Any ideas where I can get one without having to have one custom built?

Here is the issue I am having:

I believe you would eliminate the issue if you threw coilovers under her. i only ever noticed the 12 doing it (appart from one of the corners on corkskew which is super tight and not exactly flat) once i had no coils in the front and it sat less flat and body rolled  more. Coz i have a front sway bar and i picked up the same tyre off the ground in a emergency turning situation. Id be leaning towards coils more than front sway bar to solve the issue.

Need to send a sample to sydney... would be a few weeks wait I'd imagine, I got quoted 'roughly $200' for one, but I imagine it would cost less for more than one.

Man, my car's been sitting around doing nothing for 4 months until yesterday. Talk about bad timing. When I get a chance I'll have a look on fast to see if the u12 is the same as u13.

I forget the name of the company, but I can find out. They just need a sample of a stock one. Would be great to know if the U12 and 13 sway bars are the same... Viv, if you can take a U12 one off your car, I'll compare it to mine when I drop your brakes back.

I'm pretty sure I have a stock U12 AWD front bar around the back of my shed if you guys need it for whatever reason. I hope it has not been thrown out...
