Hi guys. I've installed cusco front and rear strut braces and am now looking at cusco rear sway bar, followed by the front, with HD links. I've heard that the sizing differs from the GD suggestions, obviously, with larger bar on the front as opposed to the rear. Was thinking 22mm front / 20mm rear? Suggestions, ideas?

Can't help with sizes Kym but the Whiteline ones are adjustable.

Being adjustable would give you options to tune the suspension to suit your driving style.

I'm not sure - I assumed not based on your question.

Whiteline has both adjustable and fixed sways Whiteline MY11 Sway Bars

I would go for adjustable sways, as Andrew said you can then change them to suit your driving style.

I found having adjustables on the GC very handy.
When I upgraded the sways they were both set to hard, made it very twitchy.
Changed the rear setting, made the car for more manageable.

Had a quick look on Rally Sport Direct as they have a lot of sway bars listed there and the only models from Cusco aren't adjustable.

Also looks the same on the document you linked Kym.

Last time I spoke to John Fowler, he said slightly larger front was the way to go with the new chassis (3rd gen).
Currently have 22/20 or 22/22 (will need to check this) on the car and when it had the coilovers installed it handled very nicely.

Few of the guys are running 24/22 (Craig comes to mind) so it might be worth while asking to be taken for a spin to see if you like the setup or if you want to go for something else.

One suggestion I'll make is to be careful with HD end links on the rear bar.
The Whiteline ones are actually thinner than the OEM and will result in the lower control arm bending inwards by a fair bit as it get tightened.

Judging by images I concur that the Cusco ones are not adjustable.

The Whiteline ones can come with up to three different settings on a sway - the Liberty ones only have two settings.

Currently mine are set-up as soft / soft but I can increase the front one to hard to increase over steer.

Cusco is a 23mm front, 20mm rear. They only make the one size so they are matched nicely.

I had a Whiteline adjustable rear and never adjusted it. I'd say those that are have the wrong combination of front and rear bars.

Just buy the Cusco's and have some blue love

My thinking exactly John. JDM bling yo! The fact the cusco ones are not adjustable, would mean there's a reason for that... The design is right from the start. Do you think sways are the next logical step John? Or should I get some under chasis bracing first?
