Default whiteline front 27/29 sway bar... is this what it's suppose to look like?

Edit: the bottom endlink bolt in the top pic is bent
I never saw any pics or anything... but i did the endlinks too and i'm unsure if this is the way it should look

Are the head/bolts in the correct place? the rubber yellow piece looks like it wants to slip over the washer, sort of

why does one endlink slant more than the other?

Remember, you have a bunch of grease in those bushings, so the bar will slide side to side. If it really bothers you, you can make your own "lock ring" out of some rubber and two hose clamps. Or you can add some thick spacer washers to even it up.

But unless you hear the bar clunking around, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

those are the whiteline light duty links huh? are those really the correct P/N for the application? are they longer than stock?

it may be an illusion but it *looks* like they are currently fouling on your tierods because they stand more vertical (whereas if they were shorter the bar would rotate down and back further to join to the links)

I just noticed what appear to me marks of contact between the bar and the tie-rods. OP, some shorter endlinks may be a good idea. I have had good luck with the kartboy links myself.

^ dont look like contact marks to me

more like the dirt being removed when the car got it's alignment.. those areas where the its polished is where an aligner typically puts the wrench to align.

G'day Scott,

What you seem to have purchased was a KLC20 kit to suit the earlier steel control arm with stock rubber/plastic dogbone links (MY94-00), http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_..._number=KLC20A .

These use an 8mm mount and corresponding bolt on the control arm along with a yoke style double face mount tab where as you need a KLC32 which replaces a ball/ball style stock link, see http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_detail.php?part_number=KLC32. This is an alloy style link and the correct catalogued kit for your car.

One option is to drill the lower crush tube out to a 10mm bolt size and replace accordingly, other is to purchase a KLC32 kit.

Hope that makes sense.

Cheers
