    Milt-
    Are the bars adjustable? You're probably going to want it full soft in front and pretty hard in the rear with that setup, or you may be lifting the front inside wheel a lot in the corners. Porsche usually kept the front bar a little smaller than the rear in the early cars. What was stock on the "S"? 15mmF and 16mm rear? I think that's what my '67 had. I have 18mm F&R on it now and it works well. The balance will depend on your tire sizes, too. You're going to run 7s all around, no?

    I think my car has 15/15 now. I have noticed that many prefer equal bars front to rear, i.e., 19/19. Actually, I made a mistake. I have a 19 mm front bar off an early Turbo that will be connected to the stock non adjustable links. All adjusting will be in the rear, which is an aftermarket unit. Hopefully, this won't be too much of a bear to corner balance.

    I'm figuring to set up the front ride height equal and connect the bar hoping it connects with no loading. With the adjustable plates and bar in the rear, I should be able to dial it in. Not ideal, but doable.

    I love the look of a 911 flat in a corner. Looks may not be everything. I see pics of a lot of fast cars that are leaning. My 914 race car was set up pretty tight and it told me nothing. I get a much better read from the 911 even the way it is in the pic. I guess I want a little suspension rather than a full on race car.

    From my research stock bars were 15mm front and 13mm rear.
