944 Matching Larger Rear Sway Bar

I have an 844 NA that had no rear factory sway bar.  I picked up an 18mm rear sway and mounting hardware from a 951.  The car has the factory 20mm front. The car is primary street driven and not a daily driver.  Is the 18mm too stiff for the 20mm front resulting in too much oversteer?  Should I try it or plan a getting a bigger front bar right away?

I plan on installing 250lb springs on the fron of my 86 944 non turbo. I understand that this will lower the front end, How does one go about lowering the rear of a 944? Thank you for all of the answers that you have given so far. It is very appriciated!

1986 944 Lowered ride height Sport Shocks

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1986; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock; Total Mileage: 100;

I'm trying to find a better shock for a lowered ride height racing vehicle. Rear ride height is 4+" resulting in a compression stroke travel of only 1.5" for the existing Bilstein sport shock. The standard Koni Sport (8040 1035SPT) does not offer enough travel (some broken suspensions from bottoming). Are there any other sport/racing shock oprions for this situation.

1984 944 Koni Shocks

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1984; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: 138000;

I have the orginal shocks on the car. I have removed the two front struts and the two rear shocks. When I pull or push the shocks or struts they move smooth and solid. They are Koni yellow and the springs have a blue strip. When I adjust them they pull real hard when adjusted to hard and soft when adjusted to soft. The car drives great.Finlly the guestion. Do I need to replace them and how will I know when they are bad?

1986 944 Front Control Arms

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944 Rothmans; Year: 1986; Engine (type, size, modifications): 8 valve, 2.5L, no modification; Total Mileage: 73,000;

Since the A-arms and spindles seem to be a weak point on 944s, I have been considering replacing the A-arms on my car. I have a 1986 Rothmans 944, but the A-arms appear to be stock. I use this car exclusively for track use, and wondered what is involved in replacing the arms with the various options(i.e. older 944 arms, Fabcar arms, Charlie arms), and what are the pros and cons of each?
