Finally getting around to finishing the suspension on my 92 Metro. 4 years ago I installed an MK4 Metro front sway bar and KYB-GR2s paired with H&R lowering springs, however I never installed the rear sway bar due to the Mk3 Metro not actually having the mounting points on the body for the saddles.

However, thanks to t3ragtop (as always it seems, lol) I now have a pair of saddles and mounting plate so that I can mount the sway bar.

I am also the proud new owner of an Aluminum TurbineTech frame brace.

I plan on installing both the new MK4 Swaybar, saddles, and the brace sometime in the upcoming week. Just figured i'd start this to get prepared for it.

This is how the car sits with the KYBs and H&Rs...

Finally installed my rear swaybar, Energy bushings, and new end links. Definitely solidified the rear of the car and made it blatantly obvious how much I need to replace the endlinks on the front swaybar, use my remaining Energy bushings, and replace the bearings/CVs.
