I wouldnt bother with the 2pt while the rear sway should be first on your list. The 6pt is far superior and worth the money compared to the 2pt.

Rear sway.

I bought the 2-point because I got it for super cheap so I figured what the heck.

On the one I have (I think MPPerformance), the problem is the holes on the bar are bigger than the screw shafts. So when you screw it down, it will never get tight enough to actually reinforce the subframe. So now I basically have it there because it sits beneath the muffler pipe and oil pan, and I hope the bar will take a hit instead of the muffler/pan taking damage. I hope.

Rico, with this logic you might end up owing him money. A new upgraded sway bar is $90 from genuinesaab.com, while an OEM is $165 at the dealer ;D

I just swapped out my stock rear sway for the 22mm one from GenuineSaab (Thanks Nick!) and it sure helps a LOT!

On my before and after tests on some twisty roads near my parents house, it seems like the rear sway added a good 10-20mph more to my cornering ability. IE a turn that would have me at my limits and sqeualing like a mofo with some understeer at 60, I was able to take at 80+ with very little noise from the wheels.

Sure, as soon as I find a good replacement for it



Now the question is, do I get your steering rack & clamp + 6pt brace, or a new clutch as it is more apparent that mine is slipping now.

id say clutch, unless its holding up pretty weel for road use, bc the rest of the stuff doesnt make your car undriveable. Plus you would have to remove the 6pt again to get to the clutch, not a big deal but...
