I got the WS6 front swaybar put on this weekend, and noticed that the car already had poly endlink bushings on it. Also, the sway bar I removed seemed nearly as big as the WS6, maybe 9C1 size?

Does it have a thicker frame like the 9C1 does etcetera etcetera... ...?

As I recall, the R1P had only minor differences such as suspension tuning, and some upgraded componentry like the battery, alternator, cooling system etc.
The sway bars are only 1/8" different in dia. but it makes a nice difference. BTW, you said "front swaybar", does that mean you didn't do the rear one too? I did both and it was well worth it. As for the heavier frame, I think the limo, hearse, and armoured chassis got the heavier frames. They also recieved several strategically placed gussets too.

Kevin, I knew you would be replying to me! That's why I asked here. I have HO/HA rear also, but I didn't have new bolts, and the originals weren't long enough. Plus, people say I need new control arms to be safe with the bigger bar.


I thought that the R1P was Caommercial chassy/ When I went to go through emissions, the lady freaked a little saying her computer said it was a hearse. I have told a few people that the car is what they would buy if they wanted to make a limo, but set me straight, as I don't wanna be wrong and be lying to people.....

The R1P is a "Livery" package meant for fleet sedan use. The V4U is the Coachbuilder delete chassis which is what limos are built on. The B9Q is the hearse package. Some cars are stretched that are NOT V4U cars but those are VERY unsafe and are NOT warrantied in any way if modified in that way.
