Just received my Whiteline rear sway bar today! Courtesy of heyalex6, I am now the proud owner of this part. If it came a few hours earlier TODAY, I'd be out installing it since it's nice enough to do so. HOWEVER, I have to work at 5, so buying the new bushings and then coming back to install won't happen today.

I'll let you all know when it's installed, maybe a few undercarriage pics, and then a nice synopsis of how the car handles. There are MANY a bend that I drive on to work, so we'll see what can be pushed and what can't.



More to come in the next few weeks if the weather is nice!

Yeah, I read a post earlier about the Whiteline, and all signs pointed to yes. When I saw that hayalex6 was selling it, I HAD to jump on it.

Thank you Hayalex6 for the part, and thank you sdsnybny for the write-up, it's definitely gonna make things MUCH EASIER to do.

I can't wait, if it was warmer tonight I'd be out there cranking away right now!! LOL

Heh, sounds like when I got my wheels a few months back. It was rainy, cold, but I HAD to have em on!!

Eh, autozone is closed, so I can't get the bushings I need.

Maybe I should start a 24hr. autoparts store...........

sorry

it took so long been dealing w/ other issues :( (later post) i went through whitelines site thoroughly and found a list of distributors and low and behold i found PDM racing in B.C. Canada 2 hours from Seattle. currently the BTR76 is not on there website but contact don and he will set you up. when i purchased mine he still had 2 more in stock. seems he stocks a dozen or so each year for the echo crowd in Quebec on the east coast. Don wasn't even aware they fit xB and xA.:eek: if enough interest he will probably stock more.:) mine will be here the 29th but will be a month or more before i can itstall :(
they are 175.00 plus shipping unfortunatly no paypal
please tell him i sent you Steve Doud

Hahahaha! It's still sitting in the living room. We had a cold front come in (and I haven't gone to get the bushings yet) so it's been rather slow. I know, I'm such a chode. LOL. I will try to get it on this coming weekend, NEXT Sunday to be exact, as I'm working some double shifts and a full Saturday night this weekend. Really, I just need to get the bushings.

I'll be gettin my Whiteline rear sway bar in the next month or so. I live in the lake arrowhead area of San Bernadino and go down the hill twice a week or so. Lotsa windy roads and I drive rather aggresively so I know i should notice a big differance.

I went to the website for gt works, they note "please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. I guess this part is made in Australia. The distributer is global performance but i went to their site and every one of the models they list, when you click on that item it comes up out of stock. So, i guess i have to call these peoples. I was going to order in about 2 weeks, I would rather not have to wait 4 to 6 weeks after that. I'm in southern california, if anyone knows of sumthin local....HOLLAA!!!!
