Serge,
there are many excellent threads in the tech forum detailing the installation of through the body sways and where exactly to drill the holes. Additionally, since you like to weld, you may want to reinforce the holes at that time.

Reinforced rear mounts are a must or don't do this sway setup -
I recommend WEVO console sway rear mounts.

WEVO rear mounts are a must as well.
Once you go larger rear sway bar the stock mounts will break.....and leave you with broken rear sways at your next track day!
Call TRG where you got the sway bars and tell them to send you the installation instructions for the front units.

Problem.....with the rear......Am I doing a mistake.....?

The bar is too close to that plate/support......is it normal...?.....if so, no problem, I'll make a little bracket.......did someone have the same problem...?

You can do 1 or 2 things.
1) You can add shims under the mounting blocks. Possibly 10mm - 13mm
2) Clearence the transaxle front mount

And as Craig and Fred stated, reinforced rear swaybar mounts ARE a MUSTwith performance swaybars. The WEVO mountes are very nice pieces and make the task easy instead of making custom reinforced brackets.

Thanks for the info GJF....I saw what Craig and Fred said...but didn't understand completely why.....so, is that what they/you mean.....

http://www.wevo.com/Products/ChassisProducts/WevoChassisProducts-RARBConsoles.htm


If so, it has to be machined and need some Nylon or Teflon rings.....?

no... you cut off your existing rear swaybar mounts and weld the WEVO units in ther place. They provide a new mount for your swaybar. You will simply bolt the new swaybar to these after they are welded in place.

Welded the wevo mount about 20mm more rearward/up than the original mount, to clear the gearbox plate.

I needed to make shims to clear the tranny mount bracket as well. The stock rear sway bar came with a bend in the middle of it for this very reason.
Be careful on the passenger side because welding around the fuel pump there could be dangerous. The second turbo fuel pump is mounted up in this area of the car.

I believe the TRG bars came with a shim because later cars need them to. I fabricated one for mine as well.

On the Wevo mount, one question/comment - buddy of mine had upgraded his sway bar mount. The mount held up (its now Wevo), but the weak part after this "upgrade" was the sheet metal! The mount and bar actually started tearing the sheet metal off the car so he had to weld & reinforce the whole area. Anyone had experienced this?

The advantage of the Wevo is not just that the part itself is strong but due to its size it spreads the load further on the bodywork.
