Whiteline Watts Link question

I am looking at going with the Whiteline Watts Link setup for my 2011 6M GT. I already have Eibach ProKit Springs and dampers and also Eibach sway bars. I am wondering if anyone else has this setup, and if so, did you have any interference issues with the WL and sway bar? I seem to recall reading that someone had experienced this problem but for the life of me, I cannot find where I read this.

Thanx

I was under the car last weekend doing suspension. There's a lot of room under there. I think you should be safe unless the sway is extremely thick or has weird brackets. The only thing that could interfere is the Panhard bar and you're ditching it, anyway.

You really need a Watts? It's a pretty serious piece of hardware. Expensive and tricky to set up.

Thanks for the input. Don't know that I NEED one, but pretty sure I want one. From what I have read the Whiteline setup has fewer "harsh edges" than some of the others out there and is suitable for a predominantly street driven toy like mine. By harsh edges I am saying it has bushings instead of Heims joints, etc...
Fwiw, if the only mods on my car were things I needed...

Thanks for the input though

By all means, get one if you have your heart set on one. Please don't let me discourage you from modding. I hope I did not come off that way. I have tons of mods that could be seen as unnecessary or overkill for the type of driving that I do. I just like them.

I was just curious because I thought that a Watts was meant for track driving as a better solution to the panhard bar. Do you have another use for it? What are your plans?

I would google the failure rate of the all the different watts links out there before you spend your money.

Not familiar with the Whiteline Watts Link but I just completed installing a BMR Watts Link. It was not compatible with the Steeda Sway Bar I had on my car so I ordered a BMR Sway Bar (hopefully it will arrive soon). I understand the BMR Watts Link is compatible with all the OEM sway bars.

It looks the whiteline watts replaces (or adds on to) the diff cover, but the BMR watts sets up farther back. FWIW I thought the whiteline watts was a major part, but it has NOTHING on the BMR. That thing is a monster.
