So I dropped the rear subframe out of the car over the holiday:
I needed to install the IE Stage I rear swaybar. Why drop the whole subframe for this? Well....the subframe on the car has no provisions for swaybars.
I managed to find a subframe on ebay that was both a long neck diff subframe AND had the swaybar mounts. I only had to pay $6 for it....and another $40 for shipping!
With that part of the problem solved, we move onto the next: no swaybar mounts on the trailing arms.
Well, for that we have the brackets PN 33553628130, ordered from bavauto:
I installed the swaybar, and installed the drop links shorted up as far as they go, then lined up the above brackets on the swingarms (after cleaning things up a bit with the wheel)
The only trouble is...the come in at what I think is a odd angle....shouldnt they be as straight on as possible?
I propped up the swingarms to simulate the suspension geometry close to what it would be with car sitting on the ground...its close, but It needs a bit more work I think....I was referencing this thread for my set up
