Addco bars are adaptable through all yrs in front and rear just have to modify the brackets on the end. U can look for any gt beretta or look for.rpo code fe3

can you do 2.5" coils in your class? big swaybars on the front make these cars understeer really bad. I removed mine. the addco rear really helps along with stiffer springs. I have 600lbs all around with koni for autocross/street use.

has to be stock springs the same size all the way around no adjustable stuff at all, i was wondering i'm going to try it at our local practice if just unhooking the sway bar would help my car a little bit, i know it works great on dirt but never heard of anyone trying it on asphault

Here's one for the tech guys since the topic is out there.

Front sway bars - what sizes were on what years and models?

Rear sway bars - what sizes and types were on what years and models?
