Question how to adjust?

Dariusz,
I have a set of your front endlinks on order. How do I adjust these for the stock front bar on my WRX sedan? Is the install difficult, or just pretty much straight forward?
thanks,
Darryl

The installation should be simple and, as far as the adjustment goes, we include instruction on how to make the links longer and how to install them. You do not have to do any adjustments unless the sway bar has to be forced to accept the endlinks, than you would make one of the links longer depending on which direction the sway bar is misaligned.

If you have any questions during the installation, just give us a call @ 708/308-0947

I just ordered a pair of front endlinks for WRX Wagon. Are they back in stock or are we talking 4/1 still?

Thanks!

Yes they are, but only the yellow/gold ones, however they are only $69 + S&H for a set.

New silver versions will be in in a few weeks and they will be more expensive.

Send me an email if you want a set.

Thumbs up Major props to Dariusz!

I just wanted to chime in to pay my props to Dariusz, and Poltec. My links finally arrived (after some issues with the USPS!),and install was straight-forward. Since I'm basically keeping my suspension stock, the effect of these links was not "dramatic", but was easily noticable. They are of the highest quality, imho, and have serious heft to them. Great price, great vendor, great service. Life is good!

Oh, I have Kartboy solid end links of the rear. With only the Kartboys in back, there was a nice decrease in understeer. When I added the Poltec links, some of that understeer returned. No doubt the front end firmed up with the new links. So, I adjusted the rear tire pressure down a bit (36f/34r), and regained the improved rotation of the rear end. Overall, the car is now a nice bit sharper than stock; very good for a street car.
I have Energy Suspension bushings on order for the stock anti-roll bars, and I hope they help tighten things up a bit. On Monday my car goes in the shop to have a rev-lab 11.5:1 quick rack installed with Noltec rack bushings. Then I need to see how the stock suspension handles that mod. Either way, I'm not looking for a go-kart ride. I test-drove an EVO8, and new I had to "fix" the steering on my dear old REX.

again, MAJOR props to Dariusz, and Poltec.

How noticeable is the difference between the spherical bearings on both sides and the half comfort bushings? Is there a lot of excess noise or just a slightly harsher ride? Thanks.

I'm not sure what you're referring to, Alex. I will say of the Poltecs that there is no noticable increase in nvh. I tink it actually stiffens the front bar up a little bit. I know because I was driving with only the kartboys. With just them, I noticed a nice decrease in understeer, the tail coming around nicely. Add the Poltecs, and back come s the understeer. So I lowered the rear tire pressure a bit.
Of course those links in concert with the new quick rack, well, it's no work to place the car where you want it

Guys,

I am glad you liked the end-links, thank you for the recomendations.

IwantONE

End links with both spherical bearings will offer just slightly harsher ride, most people won't notice any difference between then as the urethane bushings in the combination end links are quite stiff, however, the diference might be more pronounced if you have bar that is larger than 24mm (effective dia.).

Other than that, none of them should generate any noise.

I finally got around to installing the STI-style rear links on my GC8. Fit and finish is beautiful and it was a breeze to adjust them to so they slot right in to the mounting holes. Major change from non-adjustable links, no-preload! Driving impressions: these things are a huge improvement over the kartboy rear links I had before. The car is frighteningly neutral now. Weight transfer at the limit is ultra-smooth and so easy to control. With poly bushings, even harder ones like the kartboys, fine steering adjustments under full load are more vague because any change in load allows the bushings to deflect and load back up.

Anyway, totally awesome pieces. Thanks Dariusz!

Your front suspension page, unless I'm overlooking something obvious, doesn't say that any of your options will fit a WRX wagon. The red ones say they don't fit a WRX sedan, but don't confirm for a wagon, and the silver ones specifically say they do fit a WRX sedan, implying they don't for a wagon. Are the red ones ok for a wagon?

For your adjustable rears, how does the size compare to stock? At the longest setting, is it the same, and then it gets smaller from there? Can't quite tell from the picture.

Is there any reason that these links would _not_ work or be desireable with Cobb's 25mm tubular sway bars? You mentioned that the difference in harshness might be noticeable for bars larger than 24mm.

Dariusz I installed the front end links this morning and for the first time in a year I'm not getting the binding I described to you, wheels turned when entering or leaving pitched driveway with a high curb. My set up is an 02 wagon , perrin front adjustiable sway bar and I had whiteline links. I'm looking foward to bending the car around! So far so Good Thanks! Scott Fyi they are the red links on his web site.
