Whiteline Swaybars?

Hi all,

In a week or two I'm gonna get some KYB shocks for my lowered EL, and I was wondering if it would be worth my while to put a whiteline swaybar in the front while i'm at it?

Anyone got/owned/use whiteline swaybars?

Re: Whiteline Swaybars?

I have a 30mm Whiteline on the front of my XH. Don't be too fussed on the brand as any will do, just make sure it is 30mm as the 27mm will be hardly noticed as you likely have a 26mm bar now.

Cheers mate.

What main difference did you notice after installation? is the bar hard to install?

Less body roll.
It's very straightforward to install, simply remove the old and fit the new.

Re: Whiteline Swaybars?

Hi guys,

Recently went for a 22mm rear bar on an EB. Whoo boy does it make a difference, and no more bloody understeer. It's got a 27mm front and is very neutral.

They're made to order so they take a while to come.

You should finish the job with the 30mm front bar, it makes a far bigger difference than the 24mm rear.

Re: Whiteline Swaybars?

Yeah, but the balance is really nice at the moment. I was looking to stiffen the rear to reduce understeer, and I'm not exactly looking for more response fomr the front at this point in time anyway.

Re: Whiteline Swaybars?

Thanks guys,

I can't afford both right now, but what would make the bigger difference, front or rear swaybar? Also, I can't seem to find a listing for a 30mm swaybar on Whitelines website, only 27mm adjustable.

Rick, do you have a part number?

Re: Whiteline Swaybars?

I don't, but I know it's available, as I have one.
Give them a call, and yes, the front will make a bigger difference than the rear.
