sway bar tabs

Post by blueneo03 » Fri Mar 18, 2011 12:29 am

okay so ive been wondering if the 1gn neons all come with sway bar mounting tabs or if they are like the 2gn ones and only came if you had a rear bar... ??

Only if it had a rear sway bar. And not all 2gns came with them either, you had to swap struts if your 2gn didn't come with a rear sway bar.

I've been hunting for the brackets forever now. I might be getting some aftermarket brackets custom made from someone I know on xineons.com

For some reason, my coupe came with a strut bracket on the driver side, but not on the passenger.

But if needed and you have access to a welder, the brackets are quite easy to make.

But at least you don't have to swap struts.

I have everything BUT the brackets to the struts.
Will I notice a difference right away with the rear sway?
