    I may be able to do rears- I have a set of lateral links still and some oe rear links so I could probably do a mock up (the 08/09 rear links are completely different)

    Lookin' good, Mike. I'll baby mine along a little longer and hold out for ya. If you need an engineer/mechanic to run a double check for fit and function I'd be happy to offer any assistance I can provide on an 04 WRX w/ Cobb sways. You've certainly gotten a great response already, we're looking forward to it!

    Thanks again for offering it up

    looks like about six sets should do it?

    should clarify these will be front links for the sedan (wagon are trickier)

    I'll be ordering end of this week, early next week

    Hey BigSky make sure you include me. I have installed STI SPT Pink springs already. They help a lot.
    Thanks

    got all the bits ordered (five sets worth)

    everything is a little on the pricey side, but the quality will be top notch

    stainless hardware right down to the washers and spacers, should be pretty nice

    found these online- good quality I'm sure, but look at the price

    finally got all the bits- that's the good news, bad news is they are not going to be under $100

    I have $496 into five sets, that's $96 a set. I'm having to put a quite a bit of time into assembly (I have to cut spacers and de-burr them, also the rubber boots are a little challenging to get on )

    I figure about $10 for shipping. Figuring $10 for my time and $4 for paypal fees- so $120 total.

    These are nice pieces though. Quality rod ends, stainless hardware and full rubber boots- should make for a top-notch sway link set.





    I'll pm folks w/ payment info.

    Mike

    Great!

    Looks like you've put some serious work into those. That's quite a boot! Again, I can't thank you enough for making these available to your fellow clubwrx members Paypal sent.

    How was testing and mock-up? Uneventful I assume?

    yeah a little more pita than I anticipated, but that's usually the case anyways

    no hardcore testing but I'm confident these will easily do the trick

    got you paypal thanks- I'll have the links out early next week w/ tracking numbers

    two sets went out today- pm's sent

    I'm include some general install instructions- if you need more detailed ones just holler. If I was a graphic artist I'd do a fancy drawing (if anyone would like to do a fancy drawing please feel free )

    the links are assembled, the links consist basically of male and female rod end- the male rod end is mated to the sway bar, the female end to the control arm. there is a thin jam nut that can be loosened to adjust the height if needed (I'd suggest not lengthening it too much as it weakens the link- the length should be pretty close and small adjustment- shorter or longer are fine)

    you'll notice the way they are assembled that the bolt at top points inward and at the bottom the bolt points inward, both top and bottom there is a flat washer and a nylock nut that goes on the opposite side of the sway bar and control arm tab. Torque both these nuts to 35 ft lbs.

    Also when installing use ramps, you want the suspension loaded.

    Installation Diagram

    I got the shipping notification, I'll let you know when they're in. I drew up a little assembly diagram based on your sketch.
