Hey guys

im looking at buying new swaybar for the front and the rear i was looking at the white line
Front:- (Swaybar-h/duty Blade adjustable. EF) (30mm bar)

Rear:- (Swaybar-h/duty Blade adjustable. EF) (22mm bar)
i can get a 24mm for the rear but reason ive taken more interest in the 22mm bar is it adjustable and ive got dobison Super lows and monro gt shocks where the 24mm is not adjustable

Anyone running them? any good more problem then good?
ive herd alot about whiteline being a good brand but never herts to check up before i dive in and get into trouble.

ive got all the problems like under steer and body roll thats why im after the new sway bars if your all interested
front bar kill most body roll and the rear will kill most the under steering

Cheers,
jason

Whiteline is good, I have adjustable rear, 30mm non-adjustable front.
I have the rear on the stiffest setting, and I'll probably never change it LOL, too much effort.
I'd just go the 30mm front, 24mm rear non adjustables, unless you plan on track time and want to play around with the cars balance.
Whiteline design the matched 30mm front/24mm rear to make the car a bit more neutral/less understeery then factory.
Bigger swaybars are awesome bang for buck!

I have Whiteline bars on my 88EA, a 32mm adjustable on the front and a 27mm non-adjustable on the rear. I am very happy with them.

You can adjust bars by swapping between neoprene and rubber bushes but this is a rough as guts method and takes effort and time.
want softer go rubber, want harder go neo.
different poly bushes can have varying elasticity.
Ask yourself if you will actually bother to re-adjust the bars once they are on. If no then go the fixed bars.
Happy motoring.

And I'd be betting if you asked them about changing to a Pedders product it would be a different story.
I don't know what your running. But if it's the factory one then Pedders are dreaming if they think it's better.

I think it was around the $400 mark, but i had to make some bits to make it fit 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.
