Hi Guys
Can someone tell me if the sway bar off a PR91 is interchangeable with that of a PR20 4-door
I am led to believe the GT is thicker?
Do they use the same mounting points and hardware/hangers
Are the bars the same size at each end
Many thanks
J

Always seem to read these techy questions at night, so dont just slip out for a look, but I'm pretty sure the GT bar is thicker, but hung the same way. Just larger diameter holes in the rubbers.
Cheers, Matt.

Hi J.

Outer bushes and brackets same part numbers. Inner bracket same but bush different.
GT has a larger diameter in the bar except for the ends.

Sedan bar is 19mm. GT is 21mm.
In all honesty, the bar is not the problem on a Bellett front end..... It's how it's mounted. They're useless.
Have a look under the front of my race car and you'd see how to fix it properly.

Old thread but i just checked the diameter of my front sway bar on the Sport. Using vernier calipers its around 20.4mm (close to 21) diameter. I wonder if in fact that's the same as a GT? I am assuming it would be as the rest of the Sport uses all GT stuff.
