    Swaybar manufacturer help

    Hey everyone I'm looking at buying swaysbars and endlinks for my 2007 wrx sedan and I want 24mm fronts and 22 mm rear adjustable and if I can get the front adjustable that would be niCe. I also want end links and I want everything to be from the same company or at least the sway bars. Does anyone know a reputable manufacturer who carries these sizes?

    Whiteline sways
    Kartboy endlinks

    Very popular setup, for good reason.

    Front: 24mm/26mm
    Rear: 20mm/22mm/24mm

    What struts/springs do you have on the car? How many miles on the car?

    Around 25k miles and stock springs and struts I don't want to spend too much money and sways + end links are the cheapest suspension upgrade. And what vendor do you use? I looked at jscspeed and they didn't have those sizes. And are kart boy end links better than white lines?

    +1 ^. I went with Rallitek sways and endlinks. The ones I have are 25 mm front and 22 mm rear. They aren't adjustable, but the endlinks and sways are from the same company. I really like them.

    What are you going to be using the car for? What about the current suspension makes you want to change the sways?

    The reason I asked is because sways should compliment the springs (and therefore, struts). You do rough correction of body roll with the springs (springs handle both front/back and side/side roll), and fine-tune it with the sways. If you plan to stick with stock/mild springs, 24 F / 22 R setup is a solid choice.

    I prefer Kartboy endlinks over the Whiteline variant. Personal preference, and I know more people who've sold their Whiteline to buy Kartboy than vice versa (if that tells you anything).

    A vendor I use quite often is Turn-in Concepts; enthusiasts first, salespeople second. If you call them up, I'd bet they tell you the same exact setup I'm recommending. When dealing with suspension advice, there are few other vendors who you want to go with. My advice is to call them up, speak to Tony or Clint, and buy whatever they tell you. My confidence in them stems from years of advice and customer service, including them telling me to buy a product they don't sell over one they do because they felt it better suited my needs. I was pretty much sold on them before, but that phone conversation solidified that as long as they're around, if they sell a part, they have my business.

    I use the car mainly as a Daily Driver and I also autox, but I plan to track it some in the future. I think the whiteline with the kartboy endlinks sounds like a solid setup with 24 in the from and 22 in the rear. Do you think I need that adjustable front 24mm bar?

    Since you bring up Auto-X, do you do sanctioned events with classes? Are you competitive or do you go just for improved skills? What will this do to your class, if applicable?

    Up to you. The benefit of an adjustable bar is you can make the bar stiffer without a full install, by changing which hole the endlink goes in. With stock/mild springs, I don't think you'll really need to step up to the 26mm setting (and it may be too much bar). Personally, I would go with the adjustable version in case down the line you decide to do a good spring upgrade.

    Tracking the car puts you in a situation where you'd want better springs. Something along the lines of RCE or Swift Spec-Rs. You could get away with milder springs, but it will be a weak point for you, IMO.

    I would agree completely, but that combo does not work on my car. Granted I still haven't found out exactly what the issue is, and I have the 24mm adjustable rear, not the 22mm, but still..


    When installed the swaybars are at an odd angle that makes it impossible to put the front endlinks on, and the rear can only be installed in the softest setting. In the pic here you can see the attachment points on the bar are at such an angle that it causes the endlink to dig into the bar and bind up, IF you could actually get it close enough to put a bolt through, which you cannot.

    This is true... the only thing I can really think of is someone put the wrong bar in the box before shipping them out. The damn part numbers are hard to get too after it's installed.

    With how many times this setup has been used, either you got a manufacturer defect or the wrong P/N. There's no other explanations I can think of.
