I can get you an adjustable set balanced front and rear. I am still setting up a few other things and havenít worked out an end price yet but would sell it to you or the first customer at cost. Even at cost they wont be cheap but the best quality you can buy.

Just to know we dont really have... endlinks... its just bushings that attach the swaybar to each point of the suspension arm on the car. All I did was go to my local race shop w/ one of my old bushings, found a similar size, and bought a whole bunch of new Energy Suspension Polyurethane bushings and the Energy Suspension lube (required since its not rubber). I will see if I can get a part # for the box of parts I used but the easiest way is just to take one of your sway bar bushings in and compare and buy. Or just send me an email @ [email protected] and I can buy them for you and ship them to you.

What are you talking about a balanced set of what? Its just bushings..... took me a whole 1 hour to do my bushings....

Got the part #'*. I have Energy Suspension Polyurethane Bushings. I bought a package of 8 bushings and the part # is ENS-9-8105. You will need 2 packs and you will use 14 bushings to do the front and the rear swaybars. There are no endlinks on our cars. And make sure to buy Energy Suspensions Polyurethane Bushing Lube. This is important, do not use regular grease or its at your own risk. Have fun.

The front sway bar is about that size. Its big enough so leave it alone. You need to change out the back one to balance it out and switch the struts/shocks to Koni adjusables and polyurethane bushings everywhere. And subframe connectors, I mean big ones to tie the front and rear of the car and make it move as one piece.

Ok I thought they might have started to make them. I know that a few companies are looking for a little extra cash and are looking into fringe markets.

I will be doing adjustable Koni'* on my car. Depending on the cost I might be able to produce them for people and such. But I will definetly go for the drop springs and do my Koni'* and I should be good.
