possibly EL GT anti roll bars?

Any help appreciated. Thanks

Hi, Thanks for the information.

Could some one tell me the size of the original swaybars and the size of the EL GT ones.

Just want to check the differences, however leaning towards the whiteline setup.

Cheers

I always forget this!
Stock rear is 22mm I think.
Front is 26mm.
XR uses 22mm rear and a 27mm front.
EL GT uses a 28?mm front, and I have no idea on the rear. 23mm maybe?
I've running a 27mm whiteline front bar and a 24mm whiteline rear, but Whiteline also do 30mm fronts.
There Handling kits include swaybars, springs, shocks, different rear upper control arms(XR length) I believe, also front upper A arm bracing, and a camber/caster kit.
I'm running their bars, shocks and springs, and could not be happier.
Car is very solid through the twisties, and I have not driven a car that I can trust so much.
Very predictable.
Very neutral handling balance, though liftoff oversteer is there with my front to rear swaybar ratio.
Easily the BEST mod I've done, and I think every car I ever own will always get a Whiteline kit from now on.

if you opt for the 27mm front just get an XR6 front bar, ive got one on one of the falcs and its a good size for everyday.

getting the equivalent of 30mm front on the other falc though :twisted:
