You a race driver now?
Joke aside, there is the knowledge on this board on how to install a rear torsion bar to the 924s that came without.
The front bar was standard on all cars...it cant be that your 924 has no front stabi bar...if it does not...somebody removed it.

Front bar was not standard on all cars, I had two of them (both 1979). No mounting point on the fornt also, so quite a big conversion.

Then from no sway bar to any sway bar there will be a noticeable difference...but if you're going trough the trouble of drilling holes and/or welding stuff to your chassis and other parts, get some 968 sway bars...those really make a difference. Also put fresh bushings all around and you will get the feeling of a new car.

As I said before, read this:

http://www.924board.org/viewtopic.php?t=25795&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

Go to the section on "Tires, Wheels, Suspension, and Brakes" and look at the section on sway bars. There it explains all the options and has links to threads on how to install sway bars.

ok, my bars have all bushing supports, but under my car, that never had sway bar, there are the supports for installation ?
Now my car is in the body shop, I can't see under, but I want to prepare all pieces.

get something like this
http://www.whiteline.com.au/do_segue4.php?make=UNIVERSAL+PRODUCTS&model=SWAY+BAR+-+MOUNT+SADDLE&model_final=SWAY+BAR+-+U+BOLT+MOUNT+SADDLE&vehicle=ALL

there may be some slight modification required to the hole widths of the flat bar and you may need to groove the torsion bar carrier as well

whitelin also sell the 14mm poly bushings you need for the mounts too...

you also need the droplinks that double as eccentric bolts, order these through a porsche parts supplier...

Do you not remember defiling chrenans how to...??
Try reading t again
There's pictures of the associated parts required, once you have them all it should be a straight forward bolt it proceedure,

Your main issue will be the mounting arrangement for the front
It may be an idea to replace your a arms if they dont have the require mounting hole for the drop links...
There are also a couple of different fron bars, which one do you have?

I already read this articles on performances upgrade, but I need some informations or photo.

I have front sway with long supports in the side, I think early style, I have to install them from up ?
In the middle I have supports but not shorts bars for attaching to chassis.

Rear I have side supports on bars, but I have no long bolts in this point on chassis and I have not middle u-bolt on chassis

It would help if you could provide pictures of your front sway bar, a arms, and chassis rails

The rear sway bar has two mounting points on each side as in the picture from the how to...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v316/chrenan/exp.jpg

You have part 1
You need parts 2,3,4,5
The kit I suggested will substitute for 2 and the same company sells 3 (14mm poly bushings) these both mount to the round torsion bar carrier tube
4&5 you get from a parts supplier
