ring autobarn

ring anyone that sells them and they'll give you a price.
or look on the whiteline website pretty sure they have some sort of online shop thing that gives prices.

I don't know what your running. But if it's the factory one then Pedders are dreaming if they think it's better.


Was told that the ef xr8 sway bars are good enough for car that does not see track time. I asked about replacing the swar bar with a better one so Mr Pedders had the chance to sell me his but did'nt.[/quote]

Well Mr Pedders obviously has never had the chance to compare a falcon with teh standard one and the Whiteline - big difference, even not on a track!
The EF XR8 swaybar is the same as all the basic falcons - only the EL GT got larger.

I guess the problem is that in general what he says may be true. You might find that generally cars factory swaybars are adequate. But the Falcon doesn't fit in that generalisation.

The EF/EL XRs have 27mm,GTs 29mm up front not sure on rear.
I changed my EF xr front bar to a whiteline 30mm bar,and halved the body roll,they work and work better with good shocks and springs.
I fitted lovels lowered sports springs and Koni (reds) shocks .
All this made a huge differance to even XR setup.

try www.whiteline.com.au
They have an online shop you can order i think around $250 from online...you say money this way as you don't need to go through a dealer and if you fit it yourself you can save a few dollars.
