    Custom Rear Endlinks

    Can someone please point me in the right direction of how I can go about making custom endlinks. I have an 04 wagon with a whiteline adjustable rear swaybar. I read a thread of how someone custom made their own endlinks from hardware out of a home depot (or some other hardware store?), but I can't find that thread. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

    That won't work on your wagon. That's only for an STi since the mounting points are on top of the control arm. Unless you find one that's in the shape of a C.

    I'm blocked from i-club and too lazy to look myself (internet is sooo slow here) but there are pictures of mine on http://img.reack.com/WRX somewhere, probably around page 7.

    The metal was scrap steel my dad scrounged up at work, and the bushings are by Energy Suspension. Not a bad $10

    Fronts?

    It looks like this design could work for front end links on normal WRXs. Anyone done it?

    I took the fr. end links off of my car to investigate. One thing that complicates it is that the two bolts involved are different sizes. I took the pieces and a pic of what I was trying to duplicate into a local bearing distributer. He didn't have any rod ends that fit the bolts and I don't know what the two bolt sizes are.


    Thoughts?

    Wish I could, man. I'd like to take some welding classes, or maybe have my dad teach me if I ever get back to Iowa.
