Default Front / Rear Sway bar set up

Hey folks, looking to get Whiteline front 22mm and rear 20mm non adjustable for my daily driver. Was told since they're non adjustable that the stock endlinks would be fine. Do you foresee any problems with this set up? Thanks.

No. Endlinks just tighten it up a little bit.

They should work fine for daily driving.

Let it be known that the stock endlinks have limitations when pushed. Increasing the stiffness of your f/r swaybars is going to increase the strain on the endlinks.

Look into picking up a quality set of kartboy endlinks. They are worth it.

I would look into a 22mm rear adjustable instead. It will be a better balance and more fun, IMO. The adjustability I really recommend.

I would say get both front and rear adjustable and increasing the rear to 22mm if you are still unsure where you will be going with your car (your goals). That way, if you ever do go further with your suspension mods, you have the option of going stiffer. With the whiteline adjustable rear swaybar, you get an effective range of 21-23mm sized stiffness and you'll only be slightly stiffer than 20mm NON-adjustable. I forgot about the fronts but if you go to whiteline's website, they have a video that explains the effective stiffness of their 2,3 and 4-hole adjustable swaybars.

In regards to installation and feeling the improvements, I recommend installing each one separately and drive the car around for a few days to feel the difference. Be careful if you go rear first; the rear may snap out depending on the type of driving you will do to test it out. It's nothing crazy, just be careful.

I did whiteline adjustables 24/22 on mine, set up soft in the front and medium in the rear with stock endlinks and it's made a huge difference.

Thanks for the insightful comments. I had thought about adjustables but was wondering how often people actually change their set ups but I do see the potential in case I ever do auto x (maybe after I pay the car off). Also looking to save a little money. The two non adjustable sways will cost a tad over $300 whereas the adjustables plus KB endlinks will get me close to $600. But if you're going to do it, do it right. Thanks.

I set it and forget it and don't really take full advantage of the adjustability. But in your case, you can set them at the lowest settings, and when you are ready, then adjust them stiffer. Ready as in you are ready to auto x or upgrade to aftermarket endlinks. So, just the swaybars, adjustable will only run you a little bit more money. Consider used as well in your local forums. Happy modding.
