    Does anyone here know the diameters and rates of the PP2 front and rear anti-roll bars? If so, please share, thanks.

    Edit: While we’re at it, does anyone have the spring rates as well?

    OK, no stack of bibles here, but my online research (which Al Gore says is ALWAYS correct cuz he invented it) shows the PP2 springs are rated @ 198 lbs (F) & 823 lbs (R). As an FYI, the PP1 springs are rated @ 165 lbs (F) & 728 lbs (R).

    I've always been curious what the Ford track Pack spring g rates are. It's not on the sticky for spring rates, but neither is the PP2 stuff.

    I’m guessing he worked this from the Car & Driver article (I believe) that stated a 20% increase for front springs and a 13% increase for the rear springs from the PP1. Math works out exactly (with a sprinkle of rounding).

    I can’t pull up C&D here in Germany, but CJ’s posted the same numbers in their article here:

    https://www.cjponyparts.com/resources/2018-mustang-gt-performance-package-level-2

    They also mention swaybars for the PP2 being 12% stiffer in the front and 67% stiffer in the rear.

    ———- Break ———-

    Is anyone with a PP2 willing to take a few measurements of their swaybars?

    So rear PP2 bar is the same diameter as the GT350?

    Ok, ..

    Wonder if it's cheap than the 350R bars since they just doubled in the price. Unless they use the same part number.

    I've not yet been able to find the PP2 service part # to order. Probably have to contact Levittown.

    Thanks

    So you think this is the same bar as the GT350R? Just without the 8mm shorter arms?

    It is cheaper, about $70 compared to the GT350R which is now $130.

    Seems like a good deal.

    Is the 350R bar also solid like the PP2?
