Default Is this the endlink I need?

I have a whiteline adjustable rear sway bar and is this the rear endlink I need in order to have the tighter settings?

You should be able to adjust it to all the settings with the stock endlinks. Those endlinks are supposed to make the bar take full effect sooner because they won't flex as much.

It certainly won't snap your swaybar. Some people say it can break the stock endlinks and/or the stock swaybar mounts. I'm running a Whiteline swaybar set to 22mm with stock endlinks and mounts and haven't had any issues.

Also, doing a bit of research, the whiteline links in the picture are the old design and people have had problems with them breaking.

The new ones look like this:


edit: Also, people are upgrading to the 04 swaybar mounts, but you have an 04 anyhow so you probably only need links if you're that paranoid about breaking one.

If you are going to upgrade your endlinks I would recommend the newer Whitelines. I had one of the old ones break on me. Good thing I noticed it before it fully snapped in two.

I'm running the new Whiteline style and they work well. I wouldn't trust that spindly thing in the pic you posted.

Your stock sway bar links should be fine, you really don't need aftermarket links. If you break a link, just get a used or new one, the cost is minimal and they work just dandy with your bar.

I doubt you'll break the sway bar. It's hardly the weakest link there. Breaking the endlink and/or the mounts would be more of a concern I think.

And do you really need to set the bar at 26?

that's what I'm concern with... the endlinks or the mounts... sorry I didn't say it before, I forgot the name...even though I did ask about it my mind went

and no I don't need the 26mm setting...but I did use 24mm before so I was a tad concerned about those breaking.
