Is it a typo, or is your front 74-89 bar really 3-way adjustable? If so, how?

Graham, good catch! You are right, it's two way. The prototype unit was 3 position adjustable but it didn't work out at planned.

Thanks for the invite. Took a tour on a prior visit and really enjoyed it. Too bad will miss this one - will be at Laguna Seca for the 8h PwC race. Maybe next time!

Ryan, I went to the website to try to learn more about the Eibach sway bars, I could not find the bars.
Are these like all the other aftermarket sway bars that are thru-body in the front so to install, I'd have to drill the wheel wells and weld in a support bracket?

Eibach's debut of their new sway bars is Saturday this weekend. The front bar uses the existing underbar sway bar mounts as used on the SCs and 3.2s, basically all 911s from 1974 on. It does not drill though the wheel wells as other aftermarket sway bars, nor do you do any welding. The new front bar is radically redesigned by bending the bar to reach above the front A-arms, basically just as how Porsche does it on the 996/997s/Boxsters/Caymans and uses drop links to attach to the A-arm or a point on the strut. It is solid 24mm bar two way adjustable. The rear bar is hollow 25.4mm 3 way adjustable. Teaser pics below. The red bushing you see is Delrin:

Hey Michael,

We're launching a new web site in a couple weeks so the current one isn't being updated.

I see Steve answered your question. (Thanks, SW!)

If you guys have any specific questions just shoot me a line: rhoegner@eibach.com

I'm excited to see something we haven't seen before. Thanks Eibach for developing something new for our 30+ year old cars.

The beauty of having a 165,000sqft manufacturing plant at your disposal is you can do fun projects like this for enthusiasts

Ryan, Congrats on Eibachtoberfest. Based on a few pics posted it looks like it was a total success.
Are the swaybars now available for purchase? I starting to collect parts for my suspension overhaul.
Thanks!

I picked up a rear bar at Eibachtoberfest to go with my coilovers. Will give my report this weekend when I install it.

Thanks! We had a great time.

The 964 bars are now available. The G bars will be a bit longer so we can tweak the end links a bit.

Hi Ryan, I just received a cancel order notice and a refund from Eibach. I hope this means more development time is needed and not that Eibach has decided against bringing the swaybars to market.
Can we get an update?

Really? That's weird. Forward me the email: rhoegner@eibach.com

We have the sway bars and end links in stock already. The last piece of the puzzle was a bushing we re-designed for the end link. It's here now too. I anticipate shipping kits within a couple business days
