    Measurement request: oem endlinks

    Just wondering if anyone had the factory sway bar end links handy (front and rear) and could give me the measurement of length. I have a new set of adjustable ones but I may need to modify them.

    Thank you very much in advance if anyone can help out. Metric or imperial is fine

    Based on what's sitting in my basement from the FSB, it looks like 11 5/8" give or take a 1/16"

    Hey @320icar .
    Did you buy the Whiteline kit or did you get the components separately? Also, are you planning any other suspension mods (springs/dampers/coilovers)?

    I have whiteline lowering springs on oem dampers. I also have a full set of coilovers to go in at some point. I ordered the full front/rear whiteline sway bar package.

    Thanks for the reply. Which coilovers do you have that you're going to put in? Did you buy them because you're not satisfied with the springs?

    Nah I’m very satisfied with the springs. I have raceland coilovers to go in because they’re the cheapest set to come with coilovers. I’m lifting up my RS for shenanigans

    Okay gotcha, thanks for the reply. I'm gathering information about suspension & am trying to get a feel for what people are happy with & why.
