Have a Nice Day? Fast Responce Needed: Front Link Choices...!!

Ok I need front links right now, since they're a cheap alternative.

I hate MRT's cheesy links (sorry they look like bent clotheshangars)

Mike Moffa's I want BAD (mike?) but he's not shipping out of canada (pooey!)

Whiteline's look just like the MRT links! Remember: I'm looking for the FRONT links *not the rears*!

The links that are sold as MRT are actually the Whiteline according to a very reliable source. They are NOT like coathangers, I have seen those pictures and they do not do the things justice, I have the Whitelines on the front and I like them a lot. The bar is much larger than what it looks like in the picture.

I have the Whitelines too and very satisfied... Our Subaru Dealer bought them from MRT rally...

If you plan to do the links, don't be cheap, buy the front and rear... If you only install the front, your car will now understeer again even if you have a 20 rear sway bar...

Sev - Believe it or not, Kartboy's rear links are a lot more solid then greg's.

For front links, I have the Whiteline/MRT ones, though I have made myself a solid set and still have to put them on and test them. Very simple, and if they work well, I may sell them myself.

Thumbs down

Hey 8complex please stop blabbing about things you have no experience with.Have you tried kartboys links? Have you even tried mine on your car? And werent you the one who wanted to buy my links?
Also, please stop answering questions for me.
Its a shame that personal views about people are starting to affect objective technical opinions. You were the one who said that whiteline links suck when you were at my house werent you. Yet now you are singing the praises of the whiteline links, and even bought them. Its funny that happend right after we had a personal dissagreement.
oh well *shrug* isnt that what you always say?

greg - I don't need to try them to know they are more solid then yours. It is quite elementary that a layer of delrin or whatever that bushing you have on yours is made of, will give more play then a spherical bearing will.

Yes I wanted to buy your links, but $140 for them is still too high, I don't care if that is your cost or not, you're getting ripped off if that actually is your cost. Look at the work into the Kartboy links and tell me you can do that machining for as little as they do (~$60), because I know for sure that their spherical bearings are $15-$20 each.

BTW, where am I 'singing praises' of Whiteline links? I'm saying they're better then stock, yes, but not better then your links, and definetly not better then Kartboy's links.

Oddly enough, you're the one attacking this time and know what... I don't care. Quit your f'king whining.

Guys guys, please don't argue. This is the case. Gregs links are unbelievably stiff. I couldn't bend them with a sledgehammer if i wanted to. So are kartboys (i've never seen them, but going by stories) However, for the front links I AM going with mike Moffa's. he agreed to send them to me as a 'US' Unit

I'll post a FULL review with pictures!!

I don't understand discouraging people from making things for the Impreza...

Let's calm it down some, shall we?

Thumbs up

I have made some front end links, tried them, race them and so far they're in perfect shape,http://208.9.184.110/MembersList/ViewMemberPics.cfm?MemberID=385&PicNumber=2.
Also I have front end bushings for the bar, they are custom made but they work great.
last sunday I won a Solo 1 race with almost a second ahead of the second (Porsche 933 TT AWD) and the comments I got was that the car had NO bodyroll.

e-mail me if interested they're $ 100.00 the set of links. The bushings are not priced yet as I think I can have them cheaper...

I said it before and I said it again. I think that the links supposed to have some flex and free play in them. If "lets make it rock solid" theory was right, then Impreza wouldn't have any links and the sway bar would be attached to the suspension without any links.
