Sassy girls wear Red!

Default Need some help with Rear sway on an L...

...OK! Hopefully I can pick yur brains.

I have a 95 Brighton and I was having a friend install some suspension stuff for me (I painted his daughter's bedroom in trade for auto work since he is a professional mechanic and owns his own garage)

So he got the front sway and endlinks in with no problem. The problem is the rear - there was no bar on there. I honestly thought the L came with a wimpy stock rear bar, but maybe I'm mistaken??? ( guess that will teach me to climb under the car and look first!) In any case, that left him with nowhere to mount the bar I now have.

So I guess I could procure some of the Whiteline mounts for the new bar, but I first wanted to ask if anyone knows if there is already somewhere to attach the mounts on the Brighton?? I'm not going to have to do any drilling/altering am I?

Unfortunately the car is 45 minutes away at the garage so I can't get under there and look...

Exclamation time to search the junk yards

if there isn't a bar there you will need the rear lateral links to attach the ends of the sway bar to.....too bad I just sold my lateral links to someone last week

otherwise the holes for the bracket are in the frame

Cool! That's exactly what I needed to know!

Guess it will be a little longer before I get that on ... oh well!

Anybody have any idea if I can use the lateral links from ANY Impreza model, or if I would have to stick to the 93-00 L or RS ?

If you get the lateral links(control arms) from a salvage yard, make sure they are straight or else you will have alignment problems.

Another alternative is to purchase the Whiteline rear sway bar retro kit that is a kit designed to fit a rear sway bar for cars that didn't come with one.

Another alternative would be the camber-adjustable lateral links that have the swaybar mounts. I think MRT makes a set. Of course, this option would probably be more expensive. Might be worth it if you need that adjustability. Two birds with one stone and whatnot.

May the GT-B with you!
