Description: Sway bar - alloy lateral lock
Key Feature and Benefit
Whiteline's new DIY lateral sway bar locks are designed to suit both OE & after market sway bars. The locks are easily installed on the car and mount directly next to the sway bar mounting point and prevent shifting or sideways movement of the sway bar under lateral (cornering loads). This results in improved sway bar effectiveness whilst preventing fouling of the sway bar on near by chassis and steering components.

Hi Guys,
Hope you do not mind us popping in as we are looking at re-creating the sway bar for the FN2 civic.
We have noticed a few requests for the bar so we decided we would make one again and this time offer it with a new style adjustable heavy duty ball/ ball end link as these are often used for track work from what we see.
Also we may make it a three hole adjustable instead of two if it is possible to fit the extra hole and length but we think we can to gain more adjustment to tune the understeer / oversteer to as neutral as possible.
We are looking for an R+D car to fit one of these bars and links too and if someone can supply us a car for the day we will do the design and they will receive the kit free for the time taken to lend the car and we will offer them a car to drive while they are waiting on the day.
It will be a day of design then once made and powder coated we will either send it out to the person or if possible get the car back in for final fitment (say an hour of time).
If anyone is interested in supplying a car for the day for this let us know by ringing 1300 882 355 or email [email protected] or even a pm here and we will be in touch. We are located at Somersby straight of the Gosford exit of the F3 only 2 mins from the freeway .
We will also look at any other products we may be able to develop when the car is here as we feel we already have ball style front links and maybe some other stuff that may already fit.
Ok thanks and hope we can work together to develop some parts you guys would love to have at an affordable price.

Hey guys,
Sorry I was on leave moving house and only back today but here is the update on how the R+D went on the car.
We have bent up the front and rear sway bar and slightly changed the design of the rear with it having shorter arms means less deflection and would act at a rate of around the old 24mm.
We have decided on a 26mm front at this stage 3 hole adjustable and a rear 22mm 3-4 hole adjustment with the view to a 24mm rear as well.We also made front adjustable end linlks to buy seperate (not with the sway bar kit) and the rear sway bar will be a full kit with brackets and ball links.We also are doing front control arm bushes and will do our best to make the rear of the front control arm bush offset so castor can be achieved.
We also feel a 16mm universal camber bolt we have maybe used for adjustment but must be used in the bottom hole of the strut only due to some casting in the way.

All in all it went well i will put some pictures below just remember the bars are raw and a few things may change when final fitment takes place but we will keep you all informed .All brackets will be trimmed welded and plated before final fit up and then you will see the final product but we thought it would be good to show these raw and in the process.
We hope you like the way we have kept everyone in the loop with this and watch all the work and design into products for the Honda.....

Hmm interesting...i had a whiteline rear anti-roll bar on my astra turbo & can honestly say the difference between with & without was like day & night...it totally transformed the handling on the rear end.

Id like to see some reviews on this & see if it has the same effect on the FN2.

Good find mate

There's no rear one like this on the FN2, my Astra one was the adjustable one so you could realy stiffen it up or leave it abit more comfortable...it tightened up the rear end so much, you could feel it just stay completely level when cornering, it was one of the best suspension mods that could be done on the Astra.
