Unhappy whiteline swaybar material?

What's the whiteline rear swaybar made out of? I just scraped a big piece out of its coating (don't ask)... is it gonna rust on me next winter?

It is a non-gloss powdercoat.

Did you hit anything important under the car? If it's just the bar, be happy.

When I was adjusting the bar, the car was tilted a bit, so I thought I'd use my socket wrench to pry the bar up a bit so it would fit into the endlinks, but I slipped & scraped a chunk out of the bar. I could care less what it looks like, I just don't want it to rust on me. After just one winter here, my OEM catback was completely covered with rust.

Well, its made from government grade UnObtainium so rest assured.

Are you worried about the looks of it being scraped? Or are you converned that the bar will rust away?

If its looks, touch it up with model paint and be done with it.

However, it you are worried about the weather and road grime affecting the performance over time, dont worry about it, its not gonna matter. Its no different than any other part on the BOTTOM of your car..
