First of all you have to change to the 1986 and up subframe and
control arms. Subframe especially becouse it has a different
mounting brakets for the sway bar.
You take a sway bar from a Camaro (look for Iroc-Z) with everything
i.e. brakets links bushings etc.
You cut a section of the bar from each side closest to the link
mounting becouse of the forces involved. This is where having the
subframe out of the car helps. You can measure exactly where to cut
by mounting the bar and seeing buy how much. Remember the distance
from the strut itself as well as the driveshaft position to aid in
I used the Camaro lins just becouse I had few Audi links break on me
already and Camaro one is thicker and straight. You have to hone out
the metal tube inserts from the control arm bushings to make the
Camaro links fit.
The bar is hollow and if you have a mig welder, not a problem to weld
The car has almost (I left the rubber bushings though) no sway and
surprizingly didn't add any understeer!?
