Question about sway bars
 
I'm looking at getting some Whiteline sway bars for my new '11 WRX and was wondering if there was a big difference between the adjustable ones and the fixed ones. I know I can get them in the same diameter in either type but I wanted to know more about if there are any advantages to having one over the other. Thanks!

I have adjustable Whiteline front and rear sway bars on my 07 WRX daily driver and I'm really glad I chose them over the fixed bars. The adjustable bars are slightly more expensive than the fixed bars, but it's really nice to be able to play around with the settings and dial them in to exactly where you want them. They're really easy to adjust (just a matter of loosening and then re-tightening a pair of bolts) and it's nice to be able to make them stiffer in the summer and softer in the winter (especially because I have dedicated summer and winter tires now).

Just finished installing my Whiteline adjustable F/R sways with the Kartboy endlinks last night and they are GREAT!!! The stiffness is definitely noticeable over the stock setup IMHO and the car feels much more aggressive in even the tightest corners. Thanks for the advice man show!

From the picture, it looks like you only have the whiteline front sway bars with kartboy endlinks for both front and rear, is that right? You kept the stock rear sway bar? I'm thinking about a similar setup, that's why I'm asking. :)
