I got this idea from someone else in one of these forums, so not original to me, but for the rear endlinks on some of the early 2000s Subarus, you can swap in endlinks off the front of some Audis and VW Passat. I was able to pick up a pair from a junkyard for $10. I made a video of it here:
It's a fantastic deal as these are high-end aluminum endlinks. I have been running them on my car for over a year without any issues.

Anyone have issues with aftermarket front swaybars and 2015+ Endlinks?

The bolts on my Type-RA endlinks are larger in diameter than my Superpro front swaybar. I got the corresponding Superpro endlinks, but it doesn't have two different sizes just the smaller diameter bolts.

Did front endlinks change size at some point?

This is excellent reading. Now to just wait till the wife won't balk at spending $460+ on suspension and tranny mount mods .

I'm sort of torn between a 22mm adjustable and 24mm adjustable. I'm leaning towards a 22mm adjustable set to middle for daily, stiff for track, and soft for winter.

Is Cygnus still on here and active?

New VA chassis have a 12mm bolt up front instead of a 10mm. This is because the bar is significantly bigger than previous years, 21mm to 24mm.

Superpro doesn't seem to list a front endlink for the 2015+ in their catalog btw.

Whiteline, kartboy, etc have different part numbers for the front bars and links. So, no, you shouldn't have issues unless you order parts for an 08-14. I suppose that doesn't prevent vendors from listing things incorrectly.

Whiteline's sway bar kits will most likely come with everything you need, including the sway bar mount bushings.

You will have to buy end links separately.

Anyone have an estimation on how hard the plastic stock endlinks on an 06 2.5i can be pushed when used with a 24mm Whiteline rear bar? I致e had it on for a while but I want to make sure everything will be alright.
