Sorry if I also asked this in the basic forum, but I'm not sure I will get a reply there...

So which one would you suggest for a base S14 ?

Suspension Tech or Whiteline?

I had the same question a little while ago...

i made my decision on peeps replying....here is what they said...

whitelines.....adjustable.......NICE
S/T is more inclined towards 97-98 model
S/T also have issues with rubbing on exhaust...for some peeps it did....not for all...

i just went with whitelines....

I got whiteline
front install (http://www.steamymirror.com/dsc240sx/install/sway/installfsway.htm)
rear install (http://www.steamymirror.com/dsc240sx/install/sway/installrsway.htm)

I think it'd be kinda cool to get whiteline front and ST rear. The ST is supposed to be a bit larger but I'm not sure how it compares to the whiteline on their stiffest setting.

I think if you want the best, it would be cusco, but if you want the best bang for the buck, whitelines will do great.

The best sway bar is the one you can get the lowest price on, then use the extra money toward another suspension upgrade.
It's not something that'll make a nite and day difference between the brands, and you can't see it either.
Yes, I have whiteline on my car, honestly I don't think I'll ever adjust it.
Just like people who buys coilover system, 99% of them don't tune it so it's a waste of money anyway.

In all honesty, the two anti-roll bars are very much comparable in price, so it comes down to a matter of individual preference and tuning ability.

The Whiteline bars allow me to fine-tune my suspension when I go to the track. I can set up my car for tight corners, or long sweepers. For short, tight tracks, I dial the suspension in on an oversteer setup (medium/hard rear, soft/medium front), and for fast, long tracks, I dial in an understeer setup.

I suppose I'm one of the 1%. http://www.freshalloy.com/

My Friend and I put a pair of ST's sway bars on his 97, and it handles like it is on rails. I think for the money ( They were a little less from enjukuracing.com ) the ST are the best deal in comparison too the White Line. The other thing is to get the white line you have to go through PDM racing and we couldn't get them to respond tour our requests. It is a very beefy set up that any one doing auto xing or just enjoy the ability to swing through the corners fast, I would definatly recomend this kit.

They ship with a much more frequent schedule from Whiteline direct...

I have the STs f/r on my S13 and love them. Best bang for the buck mod for sure. After Tein HAs, strut bars f/r, and whiteline bushings all around, these bars completed the car's feel. BTW, the cheapest is through Summit Racing because instead of the $30 shipping b/c they're hevay bars, you pay Summit's flat fee of $8. Plus, Summit will price match...so you get the lowest price and save on shipping. I agree with Sam on "get whatever is cheapest that works", its not rocket science, as long as its a reputable company.
