K i fitted the front to my EF fine but when i went to fit the back it came with only 6 bushes(assuming 3 a side)and some nylock nuts and long bolts. Sooo do theses bolts replace the rear pins? Looks that way as the new bar doesnt seem to go up high enough to sit over them and does not have enough bushes either. I fitted the swaybar inplace of the original(easy enough) and decided to use the long bolt that came with them woth a bush between the nut and the swaybar,between the swaybar and the body and between the body and the head of the bolt.

Now this fits all fine but the swaybar hits on the base of the swaybar mount when going over bumps......... is it supposed to bolt under the mount or above where the original one goes?

any help would be appreciated... cheers

Whiteline get high on crack before they pack products.
I was short even less bushes, i went and bought a pack of 8 nolathane ones.
You could reuse some of your old rubber ford ones, but id just buy new, only like $25 from memory, and that was from autobarn.
You are meant to reuse your old links/pins, im assuming this is a non adjustable bar?
The bolts you got are probably the bolts they never put in my adjustable link kit :lol:
I had to scrounge some up from work.

So true :P I was only missing the template of where to drill the holes for the upper rear trailing arm kit, but they forgot to charge me for the $325 worth of products they sent. I received an email 6 weeks later when I had next to no money (thinking they had charged the account already) so I was very unimpressed with their belated request for money :x

Products were fine, but so are many other companies. The bushes they sold me were Superpro anyway, which can be bought elsewhere. After a few emails back & forth they patiently waited another 5 or 6 weeks for their money, but I'm not likely to buy anything from them again.

I have Whiteline bars on my 88EA, and they sent the wrong size 'D' bushes with it, and a p!ss poor setup to fit it, as in the outer link kits, so I made my own. Here's some pics.
