    Weltmeister sway Bar

    I am planning to install a front sway bar. Has anyone had experience with the weltmeister sway bar kit (or have a stock assembly for sale)? TIA

    If you go flying back through time and you see somebody else flying forward into the future, it's probably best to avoid eye contact....

    I have used them in the past, and they are adequate, but not the best quality available. The Weltmeister kit for the front anti-sway bar upgrade includes only fixed droplinks, IIRC. If you use it, buy at least one adjustable droplink so that you can install it with zero preload after corner balancing.

    I have a Weltmeister kit on the front of my 914-6, which as you know, had none fitted originally. I'm happy with the weltmeister reinforcing plates that I welded on the chassis, as well as the adjustable drop links, but I have a few dislikes. They are:

    >The drop links can not be adjusted anywhere near the soft end of the adjustment range because they end up at a sever angle and bind at the a-arm attachment (oddly, the little u-shaped clevis was already on the original a arms - I guess they came out of a 911 parts bin).

    >The bushings are very hard, and make all kinds of noise, even if lubricated per the instructions.

    >The hardware on the drop links is SAE. It obviously works, but I find it annoying!

    If you want adjustable, I'd look elsewhere. If not, I'd use factory parts in the diameter of choice.
