'02 Bean H6, AWP & ORP, factory hitch
Besides installing a larger sway bar to a 02 OBW H6, what else can be done to help minimize body roll without cleaning out the bank account?
So far your spring suggestion appeals to me most. I've already planned on putting in a larger roll bar in the rear. I would be ecstatic to find a wrecked gen 2 w/ low miles and using them. Unfortunately, here in the armpit of the country, I rarely even see an OB on the road. Rather doubtful to find a parts car I would think.stiffer springs (also help reduce squat and dive), adjustable rebound struts. (probably have to build them yourself with Koni yellows or???)
Baja springs stiffer and also give you some lift, not too expensive either.
I am dealing with the same quandary myself. So, budget and wife permitting, I will be replacing the stock struts with LGT struts, so a lower and tighter ride. A tribeca sway bar for the front, and in the long run 17's with 245/50R17s all around. Years of driving racy Mitsus and Nissans have swayed me away from the STI type of ride in a car.
I agree. Any preference on brand and thickness for a gen 2 Tex?I have SPT 'pinks' wagon spec springs on my 06 WRX.
They definitely have more NVH so, any springs likely to make a serious improvement in handling WILL affect ride quality in a DD.
But, traveling in straight lines on smooth roads does not 'engage' roll bars so, that would be the first place to start.
no sorry, I might lean towards whiteline, but plenty of choices out there. Don't forget to upgrade to beefier endlinks, the stock resin ones are unlikey to survive xtra abuse. look at kartboy for those but again, lots of choices out there.I agree. Any preference on brand and thickness for a gen 2 Tex?
you mean the bushings in the mount? yeah, larger diameter means new parts there anyway.I'd be replacing the endlinks with polyurethane anyway. Some things are ok on ebay, but definitely not for ANYTHING mechanical. Not for me anyway.
