Default Drop link / end link lengths

Hi I'm doing something slightly out of the ordinary so just after a bit of info on drop links. I've tried contacting Perrin and Kartboy but no replies from them so hoping maybe someone here has some to hand or fitted they could quickly measure for me.

I have the Whiteline KLC32 (http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_...KLC32&sq=28391) drop links but could do with something longer. The details on their website give the 'overall length' as 65mm this is more like the dimension between the hole centres. So I'm looking for basically the same type of drop link but with a larger dimension between the hole centres.

Both Perrin and Kartboy look like they offer their straight poly' drop links in two lengths (short for front, long for rear?) unlike Whiteline who just offer the C shape or straight.

Perrin have the PSP-SUS-218 rear end link here: http://perrinperformance.com/i-13324...04-07-sti.html
which looks like the longer of their options.

Kartboy has the KB-017-STI-REAR here: http://www.kartboy.com/x4/product.ph...cat=265&page=4
which also looks like the longer of their options.

Both look like they could be longer than the Whiteline KLC32 links I have but it's hard to tell for sure.

Could someone confirm that either or both the Perrin and Kartboy rear droplinks are longer than the Whiteline KLC32 drop links? I'd ideally like to know their dimension between the hole centres to check if they will give enough extra length.

Cheers

cheers Don, yeah I've seen a few, including whiteline offer longer links like that but I'm particularly interested in the Polyurethane bush type as they will last longer and are less compliant. Obviously I may have to go with something like you have linked to if the poly' bush types cant be found long enough.

Got a reply from Perrin, in case anyone else ever want's to know and this comes up in a search.

Their's are 78.15mm between centres. Might be just enough longer than the Whiteline KLC32 drop links for what I need.
