Yep, SPL over the Whiteline end links!

They will work for a while but will not hold up to the abuse of the track an do not provide the rigidity that is needed with a stiff front bar. Also why did you choose Whiteline instead of Hotchkis?

I believe I remeber reading that white line sway bars are solid instead of hollow. Please feed me knowledge.

They are solid but that really does not matter when it comes to structural integrity. There are at least a couple of threads in the Brake and Suspension section about issues with Whiteline sway bars. The general consensus is the Hotchkis bar is stronger and provides for better reliability.

I believe the Whiteline bar won't stay centered. It wants to creep to one side and push the bushing out. Hotchkis.
