Hello,

Been doing some research on anti-sway bars. Eibach makes a kit for front and back but it appears as though the 2007 model doesn't have the direct bolt-on positions underneath. [dunno] Could someone confirm that.

Are there rear mounting positions?

If there aren't mounting positions, what are the options to reduce body roll for the 2007 model year? I have seen strut towers. Will they have the same affect as anti-sway bars?

My car is a wagon, if that makes a difference.

Thanks,

MikeV

If your car has a rear swaybar already then you should be able to use either an 00-04 SVT rear swaybar or an aftermarket swaybar.

If your car does not have a rear swaybar then you will most likely have to have rear swaybar brackets welded onto the car. There is probably a few other threads on doing that, so try searching for them if need be.

I am planning on upgrading my stock one just haven't decided which route I want to go yet.

Thanks, to be honest, not sure if it has a factory sway bar or not. ??? Hopefully it does as at this stage I don't foresee welding on brackets.

Anyone know whether the 2007 Wagon can be fitted with sway bars without having to weld either back or front?

ONLY way to know for sure is to look underneath - if it's on there it;s SO obvious i can tell when driving behind a car that has one - or doesn't.

Bar hangs below the rear lower suspension arms with links going up to them - EASY to see.

Kits are avail. to add mounts (bolt on), but they usually end up squeaking so folks recommend having them welded in place.

P.S. - moved this to "Brakes, Suspension & Chassis" where you can find all the details/pictures.
