Adjustable sway bar endlinks

16 posts in this topic

I was wondering me being as low as I am would I benefit from adjustable front sway bar endlinks? To me the everything looks like its at an odd angle. and that the endlinks would need to be shorter?

Greddy might know something about this, I do belive he has adjustable endlinks on his rear bar, so the same might be applicable for the front sway bar

If you have the stock parts, start looking for replacements now. They are a cheap plastic if I remember correctly and depending how low you are sitting, the right size bump will snap them. Talk to Marc as he had got a set for his Galant I know, there is also some information online to making your own for pretty damn cheap too.

I do have Moogs(i got them as trade for an oil change). I will look into making a set, i am a bit lower since you last saw it bout another 1/2 or so.

Mine are adjustable front sway bar endlinks.  They were from the COMPLX groupbuy on TGC.  My rears are new stock replacements because you don't really need adjustable sway bar endlinks in the rear.  I would get adjustable ones for the front if you are lowered, Mine are the same length as stock when fully adjusted to their maximum length, however they can be adjusted to be much shorter.  They should be pretty simple to make, mine are simply a threaded tube with heim joints on either end.

Anyone know the stock length of our sway bar links in the front?  I won't know for another 6 hours lol.

personally i would go with the smaller dimension set as you could tension the preload on the stock sway bar to increase the sense of stiffness. going with it being larger would/could get into binding issues under extreme conditions and could lead to component failure after fatigue. thats just my take on it. i have the same adjustable ones as Martin and mine work great. the sway bar is preloaded a little (about 1/2 an inch less than the stock height) and gives very quick steering response. but then again i do have supporting mods in my handling department. kind of surprised people on TGC dont think it could handle well on this setup. the only thing currently that keeps me from killing STi's and modded Evo's in the corners is the stock diff and the front fenders needing a tad more massaging. matt and marc got to see the galant go through virgin river gorge on the way to cali.
