1987 944 Body roll

Suspension

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 245000km;

I was at a track event sponsored by a tire retailer in my area and found I had a lot of body roll in my car. I changed the front shocks with originals from Porsche and upgraded the rear with adjustable Konis. I have a set of Konis for the front but have been unable to find the right shock canisters to house them in. The ones that come apart dont have any pick up points for the brake sensors. I also changed the rubber bushings for more OEM parts. Anyhow Im following a Boxster and was blown away by how flat that car looked compared to my car, so I want less body roll in my car. My car sits flat when parked, the ride height looks on par with other 944s, and it rides the bumps better than my '05 Legacy GT, so I never considered changing the springs or the torsion bar at the rear. Is this something I should look at or would sway bars be better. I am looking for the most cost effective solutionI bet your surprised.One fix I made that changed the car was motor mounts, it was like I had a new car, do think a transmission mount would have a similar effect?
