PostPosted: Sat Jan 05, 2002 4:30 am 
SS99 mentioned in the main forum that<br>some of the newer Swifts have larger<br>front swaybars - specifically 22 or<br>24mm.<br><br>I'd be interested in finding a newer<br>Swift for that 24mm bar as my '89 GTi<br>has the 22mm bar.<br>Does anyone (SS99 how about it) know<br>what years to look for in finding this<br>bar, and can it be found in the Metro<br>as well?<br><br><br>Darryl <p></p><i></i>

The larger rear bar is on the '92-'94 GT models (U.S. and Canada). As far as I know the Metros never got sway bars, though the holes are there to mount them (front and rear).<br>The possible exception may be the hard to find Metro GSi. I have one in the area that I know of, but I never did look under the car.<br><br>Hope this helps!<br><br>Tom<br> <p></p><i></i>

I'd have to find poly bushings to fit the bar.<br>I had problems with the bushings supplied by<br>Select Sales in Florida (Don) with the stock<br>22mm bar. The U-shackles holes/slots did not fit<br>the mounting bolt locations very well at all.<br>I'd be concerned weather or not I'd be able to fit<br>the bar.<br><br>I suppose I could try reaming out the poly bushes<br>I have another 2mm no?<br><br>Darryl <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://pub83.ezboard.com/bteamswift.showLocalUserPublicProfile?login=dteich>dteich</A> at: 1/5/02 2:50:01 pm<br></i>

If you're going ot the track and on a limited budget the best thing for handling would be trying ot get a little more oversteer with a rear bar. <br> If you coulnd't get teh bushings to fit on the larger front bar though I don't see why you couldn't ream it out a bit. I haven't heard of anyone needing to do this though, but I think that was more on the rear bars.<br><br> <p><br><a href="http://www.teamswift.net"><img src="http://members.home.net/2832075173/pics/Swiftafter1c.jpg"></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>

I'M not sure if metros come with swaybars, but 98< swifts have a nice big ones.(compare to 89 GTI)<br><br>95-98 swifts are little bit different, so i don't know if they were equipped with sway-bars. <br><br>You should look for it in autowrecks. <br><br>If you're in BC, you can check autowreck in abbotsford, they have a few new swifts.<br><br> <p></p><i></i>
