Rear Sway Bar
The early base model Eclipse and Talon did not come with a rear sway bar. This component helps reduce oversteer when cornering.
Following is the part number list and price list to obtain the components for a 1995 Eagle Talon ESi. The components are sourced from a Talon TSi FWD. No specific information is available for base model Eclipses at this time, but the Mitsubishi dealer may be able to determine the required components for you.
The rear lower control arms are different and you MUST replace them when you install a rear sway bar. This job can be done in your driveway and with ordinary hand tools. PLEASE use jack stands or similar to hold up the car, not just the jack. Work safely.
This price list and part number list was obtained 09/13/95, so the prices _will_ be higher and the part numbers _may_ be supersceeded. The numbers are from a Jeep Dealership but the numbers have M preceeding them so they should probably be the same for the Mitsus. Warning, they will all probably have to be special ordered. This is the way everything is listed on my invoice. Figure your own tax. 1995 price.
