Anyone know if there should be any bushes or anything for the brackets that replace the link pin on an E-series Whiteline adjustable front Blade swaybar?

I should do when I finally come and pick up that seat!!!
I assume you didn't install it then? I don't think it has a bush in there as makes sense not to - but the instructions don't say either way...

Not much help since you've completely made new brackets...
Cheers but.

The L-bracket bolts directly to the lower control arm without any bushes. The swaybar bolts to the L-bracket using a figure 8 bracket with bushes in it.

ELGT - that's not right - or at least according to the Whiteline instructions it's not. The diagram on the instructions shows that the 8 figure link should be on the same side of both the swaybar and bracket. It's on the correct side of the swaybar (the outside), but it's on the wrong side of the bracket.

What brand is that front coil over?

Thats the only way they would fit, and hence why I never ran them like that, because I felt the bars were good, but the rest of the mounting architecture was very poor quality, and not worth using.
Coilovers were made by me, using Bilstein shocks, eibach springs, koni collars and seats, and fabbed top mounts.

The bottom half (which is all I can see in that photo) looks a lot like the Nolathane/Pedders coil overs I have in the front of my EF.

Thats what I found with the brackets supplied with the front bar too, just crap. So, went about and figured a better way. The adjustable brackets eventually make a rattling noise, another reason I p!ssed them off.

I found the washers they provide for the nut on the adjustable brackets is too small, it's not much bigger than the hole and got bent badly when I torqued it to 35nm.
I've changed this.
This is the 4th Whiteline product I've purchased now, and the 3rd that I've not been overly impressed with.

This thread should be forwarded to Whiteline, maybe it might make a difference, they might fix the problem and start testing before releasing to the public.

So far the only Whiteline products I've found worthwhile are direct straight replacment parts (i.e. there non-adjustable swaybars). The rear swaybar kit for my wagon (as the wagons don't come with factory rear sway bars), the strut brace and this adjustable swaybar have all shown Whitelines very piss poor R&D.
