    Bang up job!! Doing mine this coming Sunday (Helix 22mm w/ endlinks) w/ a friend. Good to have some reference pics, even though my friend (ex-mechanic) doesn't seem to think there's anything to it. Hope he's right

    this seem to be a common thing. based on what I've read before, you have to move the swaybar stiffness to the middle position. i am using the hardest position with no problems - so I'm not sure what the difference is.

    the car induce more oversteer now.. or to me, the car feels more neutral. it's tight on corners too..

    thank you. the tires are Hankook K106. They just came out when I got mine. apparently, a lot of the MINI-C guys use these tires.

    I just did this tonight with the Perrin Sway and Endlinks. There are a few things that probably should be added.

    With my kit, the down bracket to chassis bolts that you must use actually needed a 13mm socket head, which I don't think is mentioned in the install guide. So I would recommend have a 12mm ratcheting to remove the stock brackets and a 13mm racheting wrench to put in the new brackets. The passenger side brackets are in a PITA position.

    Everything went great with the no problems, wierd noises are anything else.

    HOORAY!!!
