Default Front and rear end links for WRX wagon. Have a few ??

Hello Everyone,

I just ordered front and rear endlinks from Noltec for my wrx wagon. I have Cusco sways and rear brace and will be doing springs this summer. The Stock Plasitc ones that I have right now are getting the $hit kicked out of them. They are bowing so I though this would be aleast good for reliablity at the very least. Is there any performance diffrance with end links? How will the are feel diffrant? Will the fatory welds hold up over time with a none flexing end link? Is my ride going to suffer more?

I do have bars in the front and rear.

The only thing that stiffer endlinks do is increase the moment that the swaybar comes into play, because the bushings are flexing less.

I assume then it will help body roll control sooner?? Very scary on the highway, have the car at stock ride hite is when there is a quick movment of the steering wheel and a pause before body roll is controled. Do you think the end links will help?

Thanks
Eric

Hey Eric,

I've got Perrin Endlinks on the rear of my sedan with a Cusco bar and it's helped to make the rear more solid and stable. The endlinks won't bend/flex like the stock ones do so the sway bar will be able to react quicker. You should be able to feel a difference when you put them in.

PS - What happened with the M3?

September, Not sure if I will sell off for a profit or keep it. I really just fell in love with the WRX all over again. Learning new things and how to tune.
