I'm plaing with the idea of shortening my front sway bar links to change the preload like you can on most adjustable bars. I know they do it by changing hole locations but if I cut about an inch out of the rod end links it will preload the links and make the bar more ridged. Has this been tried on our cars?? I know it has been done and works but it can lead to a broken bar. I would rather not have to deal with that.

theres gotta be end links out there for another car that are a little shorter that would work

but in the end the real downfall is how small the sway bar is, mayb more preload will prove a noticable difference so i guess you gotta try

Sway Bar Removal

I have read that allot of our fellow saabers are removing the front sway bar completely. I am unsure of the benefit there. traction? Handling? I would think it is an instrumental, and nearly required parts of the suspension puzzle. Any idea's why some are removing the sway bars?

Drag racers with rwd will do that to get more weight transfer to the rear wheels. I wouldn't advise it with fwd if you plan on turning

;ol; I knew several Ford Lightning owners that would remove it for this very reason. I would not advise doing so on the FWD Saab.
