    Its the same used in the pics.

    As per the poster, bottom is much tighter with these stabilizers.”

    Stiffer swaybar end link bushings will sharpen steering response a tiny bit. With soft rubber, the rubber compresses before the swaybar starts working. Poly takes out a lot of that.

    It's not a night and day difference.

    And, if you've still got the fat rubber bushings on the swaybar mounting to the chassis, you're only getting rid of half of the compliant rubber.

    It's not really going to change how the car handles, just how quickly it responds to steering inputs. As a result, ride quality might also seem a little harsher.

    Not sure those photos are of a Mirage suspension. Doesn't the Mirage end link attach to a bracket on the strut rather than to the control arm?
    Simplify and add lightness.

    End link does bolt to the control arm but you're right those aren't late model Mirage control arms.
    My mom says I'm cool

    I must be thinking of the Yaris end link setup. Loooong end links mounted to the middle of the strut body.

    yes the pics with poly are not from a mirage but what the poster is selling is for the mirage. i think they just included pics for reference.
