Some more progress made today. Whiteline rear 27mm swaybar installed. Weird little quirk about the install that I could not find much about online in the forums, concerns the swaybar d mounts. The Whiteline bar, while 27mm in the center narrows down to 24mm on the side to mount to the chassis. I am using the upgraded sway bar mount, as with any increased rear swaybar under aggressive driving could result in failure of the oem mounts. The 27mm bar comes with mounts with a ridge on them, these turned out incompatible with the upgraded swaybar mount, not correctly mounting and dislocating portions of the bushings. So instead of shaving these down, I recommend just using a set of 24mm swaybar mounts, which I had available from my previous swaybar. Fits the swaybar perfectly and fits the mount as good as with the previous bar. I have never been overwhelmed with the fitment of the mounts though, I have tried the trick of flipping them backwards, and this is the closest to oem level of fitment, although it is stil not entirely up to my oem standards.
