    "Spherical" refers to the type of bearing used in the endlink, not the adjustability. The adjustability is there so you are not forced to preload the swaybar with fixed length endlinks.

    deflection- a bushing has x amount of deflection- obviously the softer the bushing the more deflection- a spherical bearing has little to no deflection allowing the sway bar to react instantaneous

    and as you mentioned - adjustment for length- this allows any pre-load to be taken out

    if the parts/pieces weren't so expensive it would be something I'd consider doing on an occasional basis, you can certainly finder cheaper rod ends and hardware- and maybe they would sufficient- I wanted to get quality bits and it ended up $

    if your talking about the trailing links- it's a pretty easy install- good tutorial on nasioc w/ pics- basically a bolt off/bolt on

    Finally got 'em installed! I had to shorten them about 6 - 7mm for some reason. I used to get an occasional creak / knock from the OEM links after installing a 25mm Perrin bar. They knock no more.

    Soooooooooooo...

    Was the process of putting this all together too painful that you wouldn't do it again?

    Looks great - and still working great? Piqued my interest... i'd like to try 'em.

    I actually would also be interested. My Poltec fronts are getting a bit worn out.

    If you didn't want to do a round two, would you be willing to post up the parts list?

    I've been thinking about a round two- let me do a little digging I may have found a way to reduce the $ a little

    There are in the 30's or 40's of WRX forums out there.. I'll bet you can get quite an order going if you make the effort! That would surely reduce costs.

    I'd be interested if there's a Round 2, let us know if you decide to go for it.

    Cheers

    I would definitely be in for a set if you decide to make more.

    well that's probably enough initial interest to look into a round 2
