Need opinion on Eibach sway bars

I have this link I found while shopping at prices for whiteline sways.

Eibach Sway Bar Kit Front 22mm / Rear Adjustable 22mm Subaru WRX Sedan 2004-2007 at RallySportDirect.com

I have been seaarching the forums but no real luck on these Eibach sways. So any input would be helpful. The price with even endlink is great just hope they get the job done right.

I've never heard of these on a WRX. For that price look into the Hotchkis sways. <-- IMHO

The Eibach kit includes endlinks? Wow,

Are you just daily driving the car? Not auto-x? Track time ?

I've had this kit on my car for about a year and a half now. They balance the car out quite nicely. I would have preferred spherical endlinks, but it seems most companies have stayed with urethane bushings. Can't blame them with all the problems Perrin was having.

My only complaint which is probably more my fault is on cold days, I might get a squeak in the back from going over large speed bumps. No other time. Probably just didn't put enough grease in the bushing. In terms in performance though, I couldn't be happier.

Here's the how-to I wrote a while back. I think there's also a link in there for a review.

Yeah just for daily driving, I'm not or even plan on doing type of auto-x. Just paid off my car so looking to just improve suspension before my next turbo upgrade.

And Vew that was one good detailed write up thanks for that. What do you think of those end links? Would you prefer different end links?

I have the rear kit on mine and also had it on my old 2.5i and my friend's wrx. It's definitely the best bang for the buck since it comes with the endlinks. Handles great!

I think I am going with this setup to try it out. Worst comes to worst sell it and go with the Whitelines.
