Ok, I got the swaybar for $125 shipped, right. Thats cheap for the 1 1/8 let alone the 1 1/4 that I ordered, right?

Well, the shop told me the bushings are too small and I thought that i may have received the 1 1/8 bushings, but in fact I got the 1 1/4 bushings, but wrong bar...

Should I keep the bigger bar? Is running a 1 1/4 front and 1 3/8 rear a bad idea?

Just curious..

It will probably be a little dangerous. Oversteer like you wouldn't believe.

Offer it up for sale

There is a magazine article posted somewhere that has info on a professionaly built suspension upgrade of an SC but I can't seem to find it anymore. I think they used a 1 1/4" rear and a 1 1/8" front. Does anyone know where this is? I thought it was in here or the TCCoA Fleet of Fame.

I guess if you have some really wide and sticky tires and good shocks that bar will be OK.

get a 4 point roll bar with that suspension, its way too much for that poor car:( . If the suspension doesnt flex teh car will, trust me;) . I ripped 2 foot long strips in the floor and have buckled panels before:D

It should be ok with 1 1/4 front and rear...

1 3/8 is huge and I am suprised I didnt notice...I slipped them out of the box and threw them in the garage until the shocks came

Oh well...he he maybe they'll let me keep the 3/8 and send me the one I need...
