Exclamation Whiteline swaybar installed

Received the Whiteline adjustable swaybar and just finished test driving the sucker.
(Thanks for the install instructions Robert)
I've also got Greg's solid links on there and I just finished taking suicide circle at 40.
I need new tires. The Pirelli don't cut it anymore.

It took me 2 hours to do the install, don't ask me why. And I'm still not sure if I torqued the bolts properly. (My torque bar does not fit properly).

Just how squished should the poly bushing look?

The bar is set to 18mm. All I can say is SWEET!

Rallispec for the Whiteline. They have them in stock now. I believe $155 + ship, but YRMV.

Greg Geshlin for the solid links. We had them over at Greg's place after the meeting. I am very impressed by the way they look and feel. The MRT solid links, which were also at Greg's place, we had a good laugh.

Andrew, dont worry too much about spqeezing the bushings, thats why i put a metal insert inside, its virtually fool proof.

Golf & Wolf AND another small street
All coming together in one mess. Remember, right turns only. Left lane only for those who will pass more than one intersection. Move to the right lane (yeah right) to exit the circle. Extrenuous amounts of traffic has polished the asphalt smooth so it tends to slippery when DRY! Deadly slippery when wet, and forget snow!! Lots and lots of accidents happen daily on Suicide Circle.

Greg U Da Man!!
...
Hey wait a minute, fool proof? Well, at least I didn't drop the thing on my head..

Heh... an old GF of mine used suicide circle as an excuse why she came home 2 hours late one night ... oddly enough, her parents believed her :-)

Just spoke with RalliSpec. They still have plenty of Whiteline adjustable swaybars left. They apparently ordered 30 bars.

In other news: The RalliSpec cold air intake is 2 weeks from full production. More news as it develops.

Hey 8complex, which town are you in? I'm in Des Plaines.

Greg Geshlin sells the solid links.
g-geshelin@nwu.edu

Hey Greg, post the new pictures /w the comparision to the MRT links!!! Here and on the General Forum.



________________________

Our cars are AWD. Hondas are FWD. Different requirements for each car. The Subies have a tiny, thin, rear sway bar, so the larger bar is a plus. Just place your whiteline next to the stock bar and take a picture. Worlds of difference. The Subies are built on a Rally Car chasis that is inherently very solid, unlike your friend's Honda. Because of that "bank vault" solidity, strut tower bars help a lot less than the upgraded sway bar. After you upgrade the suspension then get the strut tower bars as the "Icing on the cake."

Besides, Shiv says its good and Mike Shields says its good. (Not to mention nearly everyone on this board says its good.)
I say its good.. So It Must be good.

===============

Word of warning: The solid links and the whiteline adj bar make a potent combination. Start off at the 18mm setting and work your way up. I'm still exploring the limits of this combo before the rest of my suspension system arrives.

Yes the ride is slightly bumpier thanks to the solid links and polyurathane bushings. (Don't forget to cover all the bushings with grease, supplied by RalliSpec.) But nothing that won't be cured by STi shocks and Eibach progressive rate springs. (Yes, I think I've found my "better than Prodrive kit".
