    02 WS6 Torque arm and Panhard bars ?

    I recently was told that my 02 TA WS6 had aftermarket Torque arm and panhard bars? They are made out of tubular metal so thats why the mechanic said that. I was wondering if these two parts came tubular with the WS6 package? I just want to know if they are factory or aftermarket, I just recently purchased the vehicle. If you have pictures of your stock WS6 setup that would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Yep, if it's tubular definitely aftermarket. WS6's pan hard bar is kinda U-shaped and pretty flimsy. I replaced mine with an aftermarket one too.

    The WS6 PHB and TA are the same as the standard Trans Am/Formula Stuff
    Only the front swaybar is different on WS6's `01-02

    So the front sway bar is equal in quality to aftermarket?

    No Not really
    I have A Strano Hollow 35/22 Swaybar set. Much stiffer and less weight.
