Putting this OEM sway bar will not make the car oversteer dangerously. It will just reduce understeer especially since our cars are open diffs, will keep front wheels planted alot more on-throttle exiting a corner.

Personally I run the whiteline 24mm rear sway bar with some MCA Red coilovers (11kg rear springs) and this had definitly created oversteer, but still very easy to control.

Gday All. This swaybar arrived today and i just took it and my Lancer to a local mechanic to see if we can fit it. The issue seems to be there is no holes in my chassis to bolt down the 2 x bushes that go around the swaybar.the bushes are held to the swaybar with a U shaped flange and 2 x bolts. Does anyone have a swaybar fitted and can grab a few photos for me please to share to make my life easier to see exactly how it bolts back up onto the chassis

Thanks

Good to hear it arrived.

Here's a pic from my car, holes should be there already drilled and threaded (Unless Mitsubishi finally changed it...), other side is about same place behind muffler.

Perfect. I think i found the bolt holes in the chassis for where the U shaped sleves go that hold the swaybar to the vehicle.
Thank you

Thanks everyone for your assistance with this.
My mechanic dropped it in the parts for me today and i collected it late this arvo. He said said it was pretty straight forward and swapped over the control arms and charged me $100 for the job. And on the drive home this arvo theu the 4 bizallion roundabouts you could most certainly feel the difference with the vehicle. Im impressed. Money well spent.

That's awesome and glad to have played my part :) .

For some reason down here in Vic old Lancers very rarely show up at the wreckers, but when they do any pre MY12 (Or any VRX/GSR spec) cars the rear swaybar is by far the best parts to grab (Usually the only good parts too).

Hopefully the word gets out there and more MY12 on's get the same treatment.

Late last night on the way home i set the cruise control to 60kmph and went thru a nunber of round abouts (no body was any where in sight ) and the lancer stuck like glue and no screaching fir tyres or nothing a d stayed flat and handled beautifully. I assume the addition of the front whiteline tower brace helped but man oh man i was so impressed.
