hey, just wanting to know what differences there are, if any, between ef and el swaybars?

Not fussed on the thickness measurement, more so if an EF swaybar will fit an EL and vice versa.

Just been looking at the whiteline catalogue and have seen that EF and EL part numbers are different and that they only have a listing for EF for 3point adjustable swaybars.

Could there be changes to the mounting points between the two models or something ?

i do have an EF diff in the back of my EL so am just wondering before i charge out and stimulate the national economy

cheers, wade

Frontwise, I found the EL 30mm whitelines cheaper than the equivalent EF's when I bought mine.
Main difference is the D bushes and the D bush brackets, The EL's have a dimple - next time you're at PNP, have a look at an EF and EL frontend.
Otherwise, I don't think there is any other significant difference - the EF/EL linkpins are thicker than the EB/ED ones.
Rearwise, I'm assuming you're referring to a sedan - my cars have wagon/ute rears, so I'll let someone else cover that.

NP Chopper.

Dimple is in the D bushes - probably for holding location.
