Post anyone have a linkt to installing the 18mm sway bar?

I know this site a set of pics for installing the sway bar but since only the message board is working, does anyone have another site that has it? I just got my 18mm sway bar from JC Sport. Took'em only a week!

It way too easy to install to need pictures. If you feel uncomfortable doing it without directions take it to a repair shop! Look at your old bar. It a matter of 4 bolts no tricks.

agreed. just crawl under there and look at it.

step 1: remove four bolts holding in current bar

step 2 remove old bar

step 3 put new bar in place

step 4 put the four bolts back in

there. you're done and your RS doesnt understeer as awfully as it did before.

Tip: Don't lift up the car, just slide under yourself.

When you lift the car the arms move and it creates trouble getting the bolts in (I found this out the hard way).

Can you put the new bar on w/o jacking up your car, and w/o taking the tire(s) off?

Yup... you need a 14mm open-end wrench and a 14mm socket for the end bolts and I believe a 12mm socket for the two bushing brackets.
