Street Friendly (And California Legal) GD Subaru STI Build! Part Two Streetable Suspension

You can see the difference between the nonadjustable stock end links on the left and the adjustable Whiteline parts on the right.

The Whiteline bars come with hard polyurethane bushings.  This brings the swaybar into action faster under  cornering load and makes the suspension more responsive.  The bushing has grooves on the ID to retain grease and lip sealing surfaces molded in to help retain the grease.  The prevent squeaking which is a typical polyurethane bushing problem.

With the bar in place, the subframe was bolted back down.

The end links were bolted to the ends of the bar.  We put the front bar into the softer position.

Next, the bushing and the brackets to the chassis were bolted down and the end links bolted to the lower control arms.  The end links were adjusted for minimal angularity and zero preload.

The aluminum positioning collars were bolted in place.  These keep the bar from moving back and forth. Now our front suspension install is complete.  Next, it was on to installing the rear bar.


  1. Why not go with the Whiteline Front Roll Center/Bump Steer – Correction Kit too since you are already there?

    1. One of the things is the kit reduces negative camber so, with limited camber adjustment, we chose not to run it. It is a good choice of parts to run in such an application through.
