I know the parts are available. I was more interested in if there would be interference that would make welding difficult.

I'm also thinking about this conversion, but how many work is it to remove and reinstall the eccentric bolt on the arms?

Because I believe that bolt is for adjusting the wheel. Do you need to readjust it after installing the sway bar?

I've done this job last saturday.
We had a carbridge, and then it can be done very quickly.
But we spend a lot of time measuring, lunching, and so on.

The most difficult part was to remove the old centric bolt and to get the U-turns around the torsion tube.

Whiteline sell brackets to mount the rear swaybar - KU3 universal fits the best


CORRECTION: Does not f*cking fit.

Grrrr, sh1t, bugger, f*ck.


saw this...
??? think all it took was to groove the torsion carrier a couple of mils top + bottom with a round file and I got the loops to snug up to the carrier tube....

the whiteline kits has very chunky straight bars that run across the torsion bar too, think I may have flat filed the torsion bar in that area also again to make sure it stayed put, this was all in situ stuff as I didn't pull the carrier off...
maybe the 95 diameter would have suited better then??
Gav what issues did you have???

If your car is from Europe, you have a both front and rear sway bars.
If your car is from USA it may be possible that you dont have the rear one, but the front sway bar is 100% surely there.

You need to look under your car, take lots of photos, and post them.

And get a copy of the PET as well to so you can identify the parts.

Suspension reading here, detailed and informative.

And get a haynes manual of some sort.
