H&R sway bars with standard shocks/springs

Hi,

I am hoping to improve the body roll on my car but dont want to lower the suspension at this time. The roads in the UK are generally terrible and that combined with the speed control humps I often scrape the undertray of the car, any lower and I would be beached .

I was thinking of installing the uprated anti roll (sway) bar kit from H&R.

What would your opinion be on this combo? I know it has worked well on other cars I have had.

Thanks

if the roads over there are bad, you may not like the H&R; they're pretty stiff. the Porsche M030 bars are a really good compromise. they reduce body roll considerably without impacting ride much.

the eibach bars are similare to the M030 in stiffness, but the rear is adjustable, which some people like. they're a lot more expensive than the M030, though.

i'd say if you REALLY favor performance over ride quality or if you plan to take your car to the track, i'd go for a GT3 front sway with an H&R rear (the GT3 front is adjustable whereas the H&R front is not).

if you favor comfort but still want a nice performance upgrade, get the boxster S M030 front sway with the base boxster M030 rear (it's thicker).

Thanks for your input, would you happen to know where I could get the part numbers for the GT3 item?

Cheers

IF you've got a RoW Boxster, which I assume you do if it's from the UK, the RoW M030 suspension won't lower your car.
