Re: installed front swaybar links but is still hittin axle? (tunedjetta)

If you did not rub with the original endlinks, why did you switch them out to begin with? I'd put them back in.
If you need to use the adjustables, play with their height, measure your OEM, then make the adjustables about 5/8" shorter as a starting point.
If with your OEM ones you rubbed and if at various settings the adjustables still allow rubbing, you'll need a new front sway bar.
