I found it interesting that stock from endlink was a spherical bushing, and my aftermarket was poly.

upayme is an unknown
I cannot speak for WRX applications, but Eibach has always been a quality manufacturer of springs and sway bars for many vehicles. They are typically conservative on their mainstream apps, but they do make a tremendous amount of custom, race spec components for teams. I have toured the facility and it would blow your mind.

As a brand they carry the stigma if high amounts of defective parts relative to other manufacturers. There is also the matter that their Eibach branded springs (they also make other brand's springs, such as SPT, Mach V, and Prodrive) are not offered in competitive rates. They are more aesthetically minded than performance oriented.

This.

Good lord they are crap. I couldn't even bring myself to wait for the first drive to get rid of them. They made the fenders ride on rubber

The Eibach's I have now are less of a drop than the H-Tech's I replaced them with.
