Exclamation Stock Sway Bar Sizes? - 07-02-2008

Apparently the available information is just wrong or my 2006 Pony Package came with GT sway bars.

A friend of mine gave me a set of GT sway bars. So before changing anything I decided to a actually measure the existing ones.

My front sway bar measures exactly 34mm
My rear sway bar measures exactly 20mm

From the research I did a few months ago on the Internet this is what I found in more then one place.

28.6mm V6 front sway bar.
31.5mm V6 Pony Package front sway bar.
34.0mm GT front sway bar.

No rear sway bar V6.
18mm rear sway bar on V6 Pony Package.
20mm rear sway bar on GT.

Can someone with a GT actually measure your sway bars and post the findings?

Also if you have a Pony Package and it is other then 34mm front and 20mm rear let us know and also post the build date of your car.

Mine is 10/05

Thanks....

I thought the Pony Package came with the GT setup... I've never heard differently.

No, I also heard that the GT sways are different. I have a front GT sway bar collecting dust down in the garage, I'll be back....

Hey Eddie,

Not to steal my own thread but your car is looking awesome! Hope you are saving up for a TR6060. That would really put you over the top!

Thanks Gaylon,
I have thought about it.............when Nice Pony Industries has a Kit that is ready for distribution, I may be hussling up a TR6060.............you say you went 410's, I have 373s, not sure I want to un-install the Watts link to change out gears......not sure if 373s, would go well with your new kit.....anyway you have stirred up enough around here with your insane MODs......have a Nice Day..........NICE PONY!!!!

P.S. Where's the KIT???

There's NOT enough true interest in the kit to put them on the shelf but I am making them on a per order basis with a 2-3 week turn around.

3:73s would work but it would more or less put you right back where you were with 3:31s and a T5. 4:10s are required to keep the acceleration you are used to with the 3:73s

I stoped by the local dealership yesterday and measured the sway bars on a new Pony package and a new GT.

Pony Package:
Front = 34mm
Rear = 18mm

GT:
Front = 34mm
Rear = 20mm

So it looks like they changed the rear Pony Package sway bar from earlier models because mine has the 20mm rear.

Seems to me that in the beginning there were two shapes for rear swaybars: straight for coupes and kinked to clear convertible body braces. Later on, they all came kinky.
