Gen2 vs gen3 swaybar mounts

Not sure if this has been already covered but i couldn't find definite answers anyway.
Just wondering if the 92+ models with revised suspention and subframes had the front weak swaybar mounts reinforced by any chance? Or still need reinfcing plates if doing a track day on stock swaybar?
Thanks in advance

    I would assume the fault was rectified in post 93 models, though no substantive envidence other than my own.
    I've had a few of both, never seen a later model with torn mounting points yet. I would like to say the same for the earlier revisions, unfortunately not the case. Saying that, all only fitted with stock factory sway bars.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences carmikey, when i did look it up on other forums it seems that most people complaining about the issue had the earlier cars also so i assumed what you were saying pretty much.
    Seems like the plates are necessary for peace of mind even for spirited driving on the roads for earlier cars.
    I guess with 93± cars if you tracking it regularly it would be an insurance to have the plates as they dont cost much anyway.

    According to Twos'r'us, the reo plates for later model sdubs may be slightly different to the earlier models, but I don't know what the difference may be.
     
    BTW, for 'do it yourself' people, I have an article with some hints on how to go about making your own.
    If anyone wants it, PM me.

    I've got a pair of gen 3 ones sitting in my garage if anyone wants any pics or measurements. But yes they are different to the earlier ones. Slightly different bends and angles I believe.
