Whiteline Suspension

Anyone here got the "sports pack" on their AU from whiteline??

from the measurements they provide its about a centimetre or so lower than standard tickford height

but for just springs and shocks $929 plus fitting seems a bit pricey, but if theyre good then maybe its worth it

anyone have any experience with these?
cheers

Whiteline make an excellent product, firm but not uncomfortable

Whiteline also make sway bars and upper control arms both of which are very effective

Mr Plow of the NSW Tickford Club had some issues with a Whiteline swaybar. Might be worth checking ou/

The Whiteline suspension package uses KYB shockies.

I've used their springs and have both front and rear adjustable sway bars. The presentation of the springs I wasn't really impressed with to be blunt - the paintwork was very rough with lumps and imperfections all over (I hoped like buggery they weren't just some rusty old ones from a wrecker that had been resprayed). They worked fine tho.

The bars are fine as well - installing them isn't as straight forward as Whiteline would have you believe - a round file and regular file are needed to touch up a few things here and there (to do with the attachment brackets etc. - not the bars themselves). All in all tho the bars weren't a problem to install and also work fine.

IT'LL GO OR IT'LL BLOW!!!

his problem involved an adjustable swaybar and the fact he had 18/19" rims

id just get the non-adjustable one so not a problem
