so i'm going to be buying the steeda rear sway bar for my 14 mk3 here in about a week and i'm wondering if i should look into buying endlinks as well. I havent seen very many people upgrade them here on the forum so i'm not sure if its really necessary but thought i'd get some info anyway.

Also, does anyway know where you can find rear sway bar endlinks? i've tried searching and all i can come up with is the front sway bar endlinks.

I'd recommend going with whiteline. It is thicker and it's not hollow like most of the competitors.

for the sway bar? or the endlinks? is the bar available on rebeldevil's website also? i have had a hard time finding whiteline stuff. i've read a lot of good things about the Steeda bar and it's cheap.

Yeah for the bar. Mike can get you the whiteline bar and endinks. Shoot him an email or message him on FB if you are friends with him. His email is [email protected] I believe.

I honestly wouldn't bother spending the money on end links unless you somehow managed to break one of yours. The difference it would make would be minimal at best. The end links on our cars are very short, so they would need immense torque to flex. Upgrading the RSB on the other hand makes a large difference, and the white line would be a good choice.

thanks for the advice.

I have a Steeda bar and the stock endlinks work fine. However, the Steeda bar rusted crazy fast. I wasn't impressed.

Last time I was under there I've noticed that too, specifically at the links. Spring time might bring some change.

Whiteline holds up very well.

Steeda is cheaper because sway bar is hollow AFAIK. Also as the other two said there is rusting issues with the steeda. You can also get the unadjustable 22mm whiteline for $~160 IIRC. whitelines are solid and treated to prevent rust.

White line is a little bit smaller but the fact that it's solid makes that difference negligible. Also, some people have had issues with the steeds rear sways breaking. The complaints are few and far between and very well may have been a bad batch but the possibility is still there.

As for the rusting problem, I bought my steeda bar used (it was starting to rust / bubble paint) and ended up getting it blasted and painting it with red VHT brake paint. Baked it on in the oven and it's been great ever since.

No you can adjust how stiff they are based on the mounting point you choose. Basically you can switch it for track days and daily driving.
