That looks like the correct number. We can see whether the importers can get them for us. You might also measure the center-to-center length of yours and ask David at TwosRUs whether any of the stainless end links he sells would work. Here are some for an ST185, which are different, but you get the idea:

ChrisD uses endlinks from Racing Beat on his 205. Might want to ask him.

I need fronts, they are pretty worn out. I will need rears when I get a new rear sway bar. Aaron, Any chance you have a TRD rear sway for the ST205?

Thanks to you both for your suggestions.

Steve

We got the whiteline adjustable rear bar for Tara's car - put it in last week. It has done amazing things for the handling. They sell it thru horsepowerfreaks for under 300 shipped.

Im pretty sure Sean had some issues using the whiteline swaybar with coilovers on his 185, not sure about his 205. I'll msg ChrisD, ask him what he did, he has the same BC coilovers I do and I'm pretty sure he has a whiteline sway bar in the rear too...I am in dire need of front control arm bushings too, they make creaking noises from time to time.

Don't see how it would be an issue, but it could depend on the coilover brand. There aren't really any 'bushings' in the front, just a bunch of ball joints. The creaking is usually a bad figure 8 joint.

I have the whiteline swaybar and BC coilovers, with RacingBeat end links. Works great. If you need I can tell you which end links to get from Racing Beat.

The ST205 sway bar was really easy to install as well.

It took Tara and I like 30 minutes with the hoist, and we only had to take off 1 wheel. We used the stock endlinks - you will need to use lots of penetrating oil on the nuts, and break them loose before using the internal hex on the bolt end to remove the nuts. An impact after 10 minutes of soaking worked really well. Then antisieze during reassembly so they are easy to adjust.

Ya I have the whiteline rear sway bar on my 205 and it works without clearance issues. I have KYB struts and TEIN springs on that car.

Also have the rear whiteline bar on my 185 with Megan coilovers. There is very very slight contact between the bar and metal crimp fitting on my brake lines. I think with aftermarket SS brakelines (slimmer profile) I will be fine.

I know Ian had promblems with the whitline bar coming right down on top of his 185 brake line brackets but his coilovers are older style. I think the newer susp has these sway bars in mind "maybe".

Used the 1990-1997 racing beat endlinks for both cars.

Can't remember if the front endlinks on the 205 are similar in length to the rear. If they are same or a little longer, I recommend buying the racing beat links. They are beefy enough for your driving style Steve lol

haha. Yeah fronts on the 205 are a bit longer.
