Default whiteline 22mm adj rear sway bar and crooked endlinks

I just got done installing my whiteline 22mm adj rear swaybar with kartboy endlinks and the drivers side is crooked and the passenger side is somewhat crooked. Anyone ever have this problem or know how to fix it? I was thinking i could try and bend the swaybar a bit to correct the angle but i wasnt sure if that would work.

yeah, make sure you got BSR36Z and not BSR37Z which is the STI bar,

i have a 22mm adjustable whiteline here with kartboy endlinks too, and i dont have the problem you have with the endlinks. i also test fitted a cusco 22mm adjustable made for the sti on mine and i have seen that happen (what you see in your pictures) one is normal but the other is mounted all wrong, an interesting thing to note here is that for my installation of a STI bar onto my wagon, one mounted on the outside and one on the inside of the endlink.

I guess i could just flip on to the other side, i dont see how that would hurt anything.

Your car won't flip or explode, but it is really not an ideal setup. You want the bar on the correct side of the links. Contact jscspeed and exchange it. If you stated you wanted that one without making sure it was the right bar then you might get stuck with the shipping, lesson learned and move on. With the right bar.

it was a test fit and i never drove on that setup, just a headsup

i would not advise driving on that setup either. best to clear it up with jscspeed about them sending you the correct one.

anyways to reiterate you want the part # BSR36Z for the 22mm adjustable RSB for wrx and 2.5rs models.

Sorry about that, i assumed you drove with it like that. I will have to wait and see what they say. I got them about a month ago and threw away the bags they came in so i dont have the part number.
