Hi guys,

I just order the Castor Kit #KCA302 for my Metro, happens to be the set of bushings on the right of that picture in the last post....In case that dude is still wondering.

Question though: I want to add sway bars to my car, especially a rear one... doable to a Metro that did not come with any??? Just had it on a rack trying to identify mounting points, but couldn't find any.

Mine is a conv. in case that makes a difference.

James

The easiest way to add the rear bar is to just drill the mounting holes in the spare tire tub and bolt the brackets in. The mounting holes in the control arms should be there already.

check out my original post with all the part#'s .. whiteline ships worldwide and is probably the cheapest place to get all the bushings from.

Got mine from Whiteline, recieved them a week after I ordered.

Installed them last week at school and think there great so far, but now I realy want to add sway bars. :lol:

Ride isn't harsh, can feel a few more vibrations over rough roads is all.

i got a set of superpro poly bushing for fron and rear control arm
in the instruction paper (rear control arm) they are telling we have to heat the busing to remove the rubber part of it...clean excess of rubber remaining and install the new bush in it

but if we do so there will be a sleeve of metal remaining in the control arm...do i need to remove the sleeve!?!?

i ask because all the busing(stock to stock ones) i ever change on cars...i was removing ALL stuff to let the control arm naked then pernetrate a new bushing in the hole(a kind of bushing whit metal over it)
:drools: :lol:

Yes, after burning out the rubber bushing, there will be a metal sleeve left in the control arm eye. That has to go too, I cut mine with a cold chisel, it was a bitch. Maybe a hacksaw through the hole would cut it faster, but be careful not to tear up the bearing surface of the control arm.

Certain part numbers are for complete front and rear sets, others are for seperate bushings.

The Rear Swaybar on a mk3 gti is.............20mm??

Nobody has actually clarified this yet.

Can we get definite measurements on this sticky for all the (stock) Swaybars on all the GTi's please?

http://www.ssgti.net has two kits available, front and rear. Is it more cost efficient to order those?

It would be cheaper to get them direct from Whiteline, or their supplier SuperPro.

I bought my set of superpro/whiteline bushings from pdm-racing out of Burnaby, BC (604 430 4512). They are a dealer for whiteline/superpro bushings. I had gotten a quote from globalperformance as well and found that pdm-racing was cheaper.

Here's a quote that they gave me a while back, prices may have changed slightly:

> SPF0678K Front Control Arm Lower - Front Bushing $59.25 CAD
> SPF0679K Front Control Arm Lower - Rear Bushing $31.50 CAD
> SPF0903-4K Front Sway Bar Link Lower Bushing $9.38 CAD**
> SPF0618-24K Front Sway Bar Mount to Chassis Bushing $16.75 CAD*
> SPF0673-70K Rear Control Arm Inner Front Bushing $48.50 CAD
> SPF0955K Rear Control Arm Inner Rear Bushing $37.99 CAD
> SPF1411K Rear Control Arm Outer Bushing $40.25 CAD
> SPF1690-18K Rear Sway Bar Mount to Chassis Bushing $17.75 CAD*

*all Whiteline swaybars come with at least the swaybar bushings and sometimes endlinks as well.

**in stock

On the rears, each wheel there is one 'D' bushing, and one round bushings (cylinder shape) for the 'control arms'?

in this PDF
http://www.teamswift.net/Lihtan/gti/tec ... 20Rear.pdf

they are referred to as 'control RODs'... Where do I get bushings for these RODS?

Also, when I look on the whiteline site their part numbers don't correspond with the ones above - they are a different format..?
Edit: Ahh, I see, those are SuperPro part numbers.

Rear Control arm REAR
SPF0955K

SPF1411K should go into the spindle.

The spindle? What is that item referred to in this PDF?

http://www.teamswift.net/Lihtan/gti/tec ... 20Rear.pdf

Because the only reference to 'spindle' I can find in there is the wheel spindle, and something makes me doubt that there is a bushing there.

The control "ROD" bushing as far as I could ever find is only available through suzuki and you have to order the whole control rod, you can't just get the bushing for it.

I found this out when I did my complete suspension change out.

Take a look at the pictures in my garage, I have pictures of all off the bushings that I installed for the whole car

Here's the part numbers that actually ordered from pdm-racing:
SPF0678K Front Control Arm Lower - Front Bushing $59.25 CAD
SPF0679K Front Control Arm Lower - Rear Bushing $31.50 CAD
SPF0673-70K Rear Control Arm Inner Front Bushing $48.50 CAD
SPF0955K Rear Control Arm Inner Rear Bushing $37.99 CAD
SPF1411K Rear Control Arm Outer Bushing $40.25 CAD

I also order endlink bushings W0007 and of course bushings for my swaybars. The swaybar bushing come in different sizes depending on the size of your swaybar. I ordered a 18mm whiteline rear adjustable swaybar so it came with the bushings for the swaybar itself

Last summer I went and installed urethane swaybar bushings and end links. Instead of going with Whiteline or SuperPro, I bought universal bushings from Energy Suspension. For any one in the Lower Mainland, I got these at Mopac. I don't have part numbers. I just took my old bushings down to the store and got the staff to match up new replacements. About $50 for everything.

Swaybar and endlink bushings, front and rear. Also new Grade 10 bolts to fix the old rusty swaybar bolts that broke off:
image_id: 11341

The front control arm brackets need to be notched to clear the new swaybar brackets. Stock on the left, notched on the right:
image_id: 11342

A clearer example of why the control arm bracket needs to be notched:
image_id: 11343

Front swaybar bushing:
image_id: 11344
Rear swaybar bushing:
image_id: 11345

Rear endlink bushing:
image_id: 11346


I have since dug out my original invoice and found the part numbers:
