Very "rigid". Feels like it has no shocks lol. Front end doesnt "sag" as much in the turns, stays pretty flat.Nice! Looks like it fit perfectly over the white bolt thingy on the driver's side.
So how's the ride now?
The strut bar stiffines the frame, The sawy bar stops sway... more detailed below vvvvI would think tightening up the sway bar would be a better improvement for that.
Are there aftermarket roll bars for the g6. Too lazy to look right now lol.The strut bar stiffines the frame, The sawy bar stops sway... more detailed below vvvv
Swaybars will decrease the amount of body roll that you have, thus increasing the amount of tire contact that will keep in hard turns. They typically replace the stock bars on the car. In terms of suspension mods, swaybars are "usually" the best bang for the buck.They are sometimes also called anti-sway bars or anti-roll bars. Their purpose in life is to try to keep the car's body from "rolling" in a sharp turn.
Think about what happens to a car in a sharp turn. If you are inside the car, you know that your body gets pulled toward the outside of the turn. The same thing is happening to all the parts of the car. So the part of the car on the outside of the turn gets pushed down toward the road and the part of the car on the inside of the turn rises up. In other words, the body of the car "rolls" 10 or 20 or 30 degrees toward the outside of the turn. If you take a turn fast enough, the tires on the inside of the turn actually rise off the road and the car flips over.
Strutbars mount to the top of the struts, and will help the keep the strut towers from flexing in hard corners.aka strut bars aslo help to retain suspension geometrey and reduce shock tower flex when loaded up (cornering) Don't expect these to give you any additional cornering force. They will generally make the initial turn-in of the car much more responsive however. ie. better low speed handling in quick turns.
Ya i have one then cuz i have the GT. I want some lowering springs tooI don't know to be honest but grabbing a set form a gxp(if you don't have one allready) would be cheaper/smarter
EDIT**** Gxp and gt and base models have the same anti-roll bad
EDIT**** I can find anything.... I did find lowering springs but sure you guys all knew that
Sweet..... If I could weld........ OMG... you should make those.... Give G6'ers a good price and you could be the next forum boner.because I'm a cheap bass turd and I really like to do things myself, I built my own. I still need to paint it. It's only primed right now, but this is it so far
The farther away the shock towers are away from the firewall the more it helps, But with the g6's being so close it is not going to make a huge difference.haha, not a bad idea. I would definitely have to setup a jig though so the bends would be a lot easier to accomplish. Aside from that, shaping the plates that connect to the bolts was the most time consuming.
I'm about to start working on one for the rear end. I just haven't had time lately to work on it.
I've actually taken my car to the track (http://www.hallettracing.net) to race it so I made this one a bit beefier to handle the tight turns. I would like to add one to the rear that would go from shock tower to tower plus connect, with an x-beam, to the rear dash frame. I'm not going to be able to make it the track before the last session at the end of this month, but I will be going this spring. I want to be able to actually try with and without the rear to see how much of a difference there actually is.
I'm with Lampoon though. Not much of a difference with our cars. But, they look cool
Yeah, I had a 2g Eclipse and strut tower bars made a huge difference, not only in handling, but in the entire car's rigidity.The farther away the shock towers are away from the firewall the more it helps, But with the g6's being so close it is not going to make a huge difference.
