2022-01-31 - End Links with OE Bar

The rule states: Sway bar, non-OE, including end links: 20 pts each axle

I understand this means if you do an aftermarket bar the end links are included. What about if we do a stock bar with aftermarket end links? Does this count as 20pts?

It depends on what combination of end links you use. Heim joints are 5 points per end. So if using 2 Heims per side and you use them on both sides = 20 points.

Beginning 01Jan2023, End Links (including Heim(s)) are 5 points per corner. 

So 2 heims per side and you use them on both sides = 10 points. 

1 Heim per side on both sides = 10 points. 

2 heims on 1 side and stock on other = 5 points.
