Whiteline Adj. Swaybars Settings?


Recommended Posts

One last try, let me table the average results for the Subaru 22mm adjustable rear stabiliser bar at 60 mm travel

Soft/Soft = 2,350

Soft/Medium = 3,017

Medium/Medium = 3,133

Medium/Hard = 3,667

Hard/Hard = 3,933

That is 3 holes on each arm with 5 rates as per my post;

One last Jim quote, from 2002;

We moved on from this with the real world test as I described in the post above, the answer I arrived at was "insignificant" because no one could pick it in a real world (blind) test.

You choose to believe what you want, all I can say is try it for yourself. If you can pick the assymetry (in a blind test) then you will be the first.

:/ cheers :D


Would you have results for a 200sx?

Also these figures 3,133 etc, are they in kgf/m?

Thread Revival! 

I’ve got an R33GTST that has the whiteline sway bar. I think it was on the hard setting and snapped one of the sway bar link brackets and I think on the other side the bar has been rubbing on the rubber brake line and worn it a way a little. 

I’ve almost fixed it all up and was considering putting the stock anti roll bar on to limit load on the bracket and avoid rubbing. 

Has anyone else had any issue. Alternatively I may just run the whiteline on the soft setting. Does the bar slide a bit left to right? Is there a way to avoid it?

I ran 24mm bar on soft setting at rear for years before changing to 22mm on hard.

I run 24mm bar on hard setting at front and have done so for many years. No breakage. But this is on an R32, not an ocean liner.

You can put a bit of rubber sheet and a hose clamp around the bar on each side of one or both D brackets to keep it laterally aligned.

    • looking good mate keep up the good work i like following this thread.  
    • 20220120_204714.mp4     Hey guys, passenger door jammed shut on me, I managed to get the door card off in one piece and have a look in there but can't seem to find the problem. Ive tried using combos of using the key and holding the interior lock open, using both door handles and the central lock button. Ive tried pushing and pulling the door latch and lock rods manually The lock mechanism seems to turn and push the lever when I turn the key and everything looks to be in place. Cant for the life of me find the problem. Any help would be appreciated. If there is a manual way to open the door I haven't found it. Im guessing something inside the latch mechanism has gone bad but how can you get it out with the door jammed shut? 
    • There are literally dozens of aftermarket throttlebodies in DCOE carby format. The RB26 ITBs are so very very close to the DCOE bolt pattern that it is difficult to believe that Nissan came that close and didn't actually just use the DCOE pattern. Then, you can look at just about any EFI motorbike from Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, etc that used single throttles, in whatever size floats your boat. 45mm? 48mm? Larger? They're all out there. Just build manifold and plenum and linkages to suit. As for compression and cams - the larger the cam duration, the more compression you can run. Just sayin'. And as for cost for bottom end.....8500 rpm is well within the limits of the stock bottom end. Especially NA. It won't cost much to make it good for >9000. Just need some light pistons and some moderately strong rods and bolts. On the subject of VCT.....all RB25s have it (except for the very first ones in the R32). The vanilla 25s in the R33 era cars were all VCT. There's almost no difference in the VCT between vanilla and Neo engines. The difference between Neos and vanilla 25s is that the Neos have solid lifters, a different included angle in the valves with a shallow combustion chamber. And in the NAs.....not particularly good flowing ports. I would not write off the power potential of an L series vs an RB25DE though, neo or not. 2.8L & 3L (and larger) L series builds, even running Mikunis, have made really large power. There is nothing wrong with the single cam engines. The twin cams are not inherently a massive leap in power potential.
