The front stabilizer links I bought are adjustable by about an inch. The rear end of my car doesn't have links. Just a basic fixed axel design.
Have you figured out how to tune the links yet? I considered them as my current front sway bar is rubbing. I definitely need to change something.

Not yet, they're still in a bag.

I thought I'd post an update since it's been a couple weeks. Yesterday I received my KONI struts and shocks. The boxes were beat up pretty good but, I opened things up and there's no damage.

1 strut, and the shocks. The other strut is off to the side.

I have everything I need for the suspension upgrade EXCEPT for the Rear Whiteline Stabilizer Bar. I guess it's on backorder so I emailed Whiteline last night to get an ETA. I haven't heard back yet. And before you say anything Pat, I saw you got yours already. ;)

It's supposed to be hot and humid next week so I was going to hold off a few weeks to install anyway.

Hopefully get yours soon... if it makes ya feel any better my coilover order has been silent since I ordered them.. no return emails when I've asked about ETA. And when I tried calling them today all I get is voicemail system even when trying to go to the operator...

When I was looking for struts/shocks most of the Bilstein stuff I looked at was out of stock or not available. The Koni's I ordered were too. But Tire Rack was good in the communications department on updates.

I received a response from Whiteline about the Rear Stabilizer Bar. They said: " We have been experiencing heavy delays from US Customs to release our containers on time." They offered to give me 10% OFF my order if I could wait or otherwise they could refund my purchase entirely. They said they expect my order to ship by the end of June or Early July. I told them I could wait and they promptly refunded me 10% of the cost of the order. :)

@Mr_Pat that could explain your Bilstein holdup if customs are unusually slow.

That's the idea. I loved that about my Cobalt.

I was moments away from buying the headlamps. I still am waffling though.
I've been seeing your posts in the searches I've been doing.

I'll take pictures. They're one of the higher priced halogen projector housings "designed and engineered in Southern California"; However, I'm not sure that necessarily translates to higher quality, but I'm hoping it does.

UPDATE: I assembled my new strut assemblies.
All the components are new. KONI Sport Strut, Eibach Pro-Line Spring, GM Top Mount, GM Dust Cover, GM Lower Isolated. Surprisingly I discovered that I probably wouldn't have needed to use a spring compressor, but I did anyway. I only had to compress them about a 1/2" to get the top plate on and I could do that with my hands with the Eibach springs. :LOL:

Finished Assembly:
