    Perrin endlinks installed and rear sway bar adjusted

    I was over at Dave's (SaggioWRX's) place to pick up some radios for our upcoming caravan, and I mentioned that I wanted to move my rear sway bar down a notch since it was oversteering quite a bit. Dave says "You should get some Perrin Endlinks!" and I said "Hey good idea" so I contacted Garret and he hooked me up with them.

    Dave and Jay (MojoHand on NASIOC) had done endlinks before, so they wanted to see how fast they could install them. With the two of them going, it took all but 10 minutes to install and move my sway bar down a notch. It was both funny and impressive...heh. Here's a (bad) pic of them installed:



    My drive home was long, but mostly straight, so I didn't get to feel the difference very much. My initial impressions though are that my car rolls even less with them in, and my car feels MUCH more neutral with the sway bar moved to the medium setting. Before, even on freeway onramps, my turn-in would cause my rear end to start breaking loose, giving me a very uneasy feeling. Now, it feels a hell of a lot better and it just feels a lot more stable through the turn. I suppose I'll have some more things to say after our big caravan through the twisties of the Olympic Mountains next weekend

    Yep, it's in the middle now. On the outside one, my god my car would just oversteer enough to scare me. I'm a good driver, but not a professional driver by any means...so although drifting looks really badass in videos, I don't want to even attempt it unless I get some proper instruction, let alone with my daily driver.

    I'm all about more neutral steering...at least with my own car

    Are those rims your Volks? I know it's a close and blurry picture, but it doesn't look like them.

    Yep, those are my Volks I was taking a quick pic and didn't have the white balance and exposure adjusted correctly, hence the really bright wheels and bad focus.

    I went on that onramp where I initially noticed the big oversteer just about an hour or so ago and WOW the car feels much more neutral and predictable now. No more scared Armin = happy Armin.
