Default aftermarket endlink box mounts

I have an 04sti and just purchase 25mm sways for f/r but am now concerned about the endlink mounts. I have read several threads about the mount points failing almost guaranteed when going with a larger bar. I saw that poltec made some replacement mount boxes however they have been unresponsive to my emails and after searching it seems as though orders placed through them are going unfulfilled so I'm guessing that brand is a no go. Does any other MFG make an item similar?
Thx!

the sti ones are okay, even the steel ones of the 04 STi. If you want something to reinforce it, whiteline makes a set of brackets. But you really don't need it IMO. I'm running a 22mm bar just fine without.

I've just been going through these posts and it would seem otherwise. If the 04 sti is beefier in this area then that is great! I would still like to source a stronger component though.

There was a forum post earlier this year that commented on a beefed up version from Subaru. Don't think they were STi's. There was a link to getting them at subarugenuineparts.com
