Swaybars

For Porsche 996/997

Control 996/997 body roll, adjust for over/under steer, manage tire contact patch, and eliminate binding by upgrading swaybars and drop links.

GT3 Swaybars

A GT3 5-way adjustable front swaybar allows you to easily fine-tune understeer/oversteer and roll stiffness. A great upgrade for cars used on both street and track.

The three GT3 rear swaybars listed below are matched upgrades for with the GT3 front swaybars above.

M030 Swaybars

A 23.6mm M030 front swaybar and 19.6mm M030 rear swaybars are a good upgrade for cars with standard suspension but not adjustable.

Adjustable Drop Links

 

For Porsche 996 C4 / C2

The ideal swaybar is completely unloaded at static ride height. Stock drops links almost always preload the swaybar since the car doesn't sit perfectly level due to asymmetries such as driver weight.

Our front and rear adjustable-length drop links for C4/C2 allow you to eliminate preload of the swaybar for maximum performance.

A preloaded swaybar shifts the weight carried by each of the tires, increasing grip on weighted tires at the expense of decreasing grip on un-weighted tires. This shifted weight/grip causes uneven handling in left and right turns, and premature brake lockup since the less-loaded tire locks up first. Preload can be completely eliminated by adjusting drop link length and swaybar performance optimized.

  • Maintenance-free precision rod ends
  • Weather-sealed
  • Light weight aluminum design
  • Easy Bolt-on replacement

Lowering a vehicle increases cornering ability, improves responsiveness, and decreases lap times but when you lower a car without adding adjustable swaybar drop links you won't take full advantage of the other components and the ride quality won't be as good as you were expecting.

When you lower a vehicle, the suspension geometry is changed between the unsprung components and the components mounted to the chassis... the swaybar is a perfect example. In a factory setup the swaybar works as part of an optimized system to handle the daily driving needs off the assembly line for most people. When you lower a car but retain your factory drop-links you will end up with a harsh ride, poor cornering, squeaks, binding, and other issues because the swaybar will be positioned incorrectly and will be trying to work as part of the old factory suspension setup which means working against your new custom suspension.

This adjustable drop-link kit allows you to connect the swaybar properly with zero pre-load for corrected geometry and a completed professional installation. For a daily driver this means better handling and a better ride quality every day. For a track car it means you have the ability to take full advantage of corner-weighting for increased cornering response, increased predictability, less driver fatigue, and the ability to make changes as track and vehicle setup variables change.

OEM Drop Links

For Porsche 996/997

Drop links are exposed to heavy cornering loads and stress due to steering action. As the joints wear, you may experience excess noise, loss of roll stiffness and failure. Replace them with these OEM drop links to restore original performance and ride quality.
