Default Eibach/SPC lateral links (Pro Alignment kit)

I have the Eibach branded links. Actually it is only an Eibach box, the links are stamped SPC. They are made in China. Build quality is good at least on par with stock links. The welds are functional but not beautiful. They have rubber bushings which with a fingernail test seems harder than stock. I had no issues with installing them. Very good adjustability too. After a month of driving they are not noisy at all. That is no extra noise, vibration or harshness. The rear has a smooth, solid feel. They are not flashy but work well.
Forgot to mention that they are very reasonably priced. I have seen a full set of 4 links for about $260. I feel they are as good if not better replacement option than stock.
I did not trust the E-Bay(Godspeed, etc.) links to go that route. I have heard of to many failures.

Can you measure one adjusted all the way out to see if these will work for us wagon owners. From bolt hole to bolt hole please.
I hope to catch you before you install.

RSD says they work for all Impreza/WRX, wagons and sedans, from 1993-2007.

Here's an update.

All is well with them.
Zero problems (I do live in salt fee CA though, so I can't comment on how they hold up to the "real" elements).

To answer the old questions from jkling4591 (sorry I never responded. I lost track of this thread).
I got the full kit. This includes 4 lateral links, 2 sway bar end link "blocks", and I believe 4 steel sleeves (the sleeves are used in the front inboard location)(sorry but I'm going off my feeble memory here).

The links are indeed stamped SPC but they came in an Eibach box.

Bottom line is I'm still pleased.

Sorry I don't keep track of this thread, but I do have measurements. I was thinking the same thing when I bought them.
They are lost in a pile of mess right now.
I'll try to dig them up as soon as I can.
If you have already figured it out please let's us know.
Thanks.

I have figured it out, they are 40 mm bushings I believe stock is 36 mm and know one makes a replacement except for SPC themselves. I ordered some, 16 bucks each. They also make a pillow style bushing for them as well.

I need these bushings too and can't find them by the part number listed. Anyone else have the right part number or know where to get them?

They do have a phone number to call. Perhaps try calling directly.
