Whiteline rear sway bar install guide
Well more like some helpful tips since there are no installation instructions. These pics are of the completed install but you'll get the idea smile


First off jack up the rear of the car and remove the wheels, Then put your jack stands under the axle so the install can be done with the suspension loaded.

*note steps 1 through 3 are on the passenger side of the car looking in through the fender well.

Run the two locking nuts all the way down the threads on the eye bolt pivot.

*90 degree angle is important to the life of the bushings

This step will show you where the sway bar will want to be on the axle.

*not shown the larger fender washer goes on the inside of the pivot not between the bar and the pivot

Once again that 90 degree angle is important smile


Check all your work and don't over tighten the bolts because they will strip or worse.

Looks good. So how does it ride? More oversteer? Looks adjustable, have you tried any of the other settings?

Well I got the front and the rear set at the stiffest setting. And now I finally got some oversteer Woo Hoo!
