They look like the ones above. I'll have to look at them closer when I get home, but when I replied to this post last night I was pretty sure the the studs were the same size.

You are right, they are close but look to be 10 & 12mm. Both sets, PDCAMENDR110 & PDCAMEND1210 have a pair of each. The smaller stud is for the strut I take it?

Some PMs make you smile more than others.

I keep forgetting to call you about new endlinks. I want to talk to you about the quiet end links. I am fed up with my XXXXXXX noisy rod ends banging all over the place.

Pedders quiet endlinks will work with ALL brand bars including OE. Specify OE endlinks when ordering.

Pete,
Thanks for the help today.
I can't wait to install your new QUIET end links and make my Camaro sound new again. Tired of the banging and popping sounds

I will post the results as soon as I get them installed.

Ok, they are in and so far the are awesome!!
I was all over it on my way home from the mechanic.
Hard turns, bumps, even train tracks, and NO banging and popping!!!
What a difference!
Now my SS handles great and still sounds like a new car.
Thanks for your help Pete.

Pete,
Just checking in. Its been almost 2 weeks since I installed the OE end links. I have done a lot of hard driving, and still no noise!
I am so happy you were able to solve my rattly front end. I actually get excited every time I get in my car, knowing that I will have quiet, tight, performance ride.
I am going to the road track next month, I can't wait to see the performance on the track.
Thanks again!

Water is wet. The sky is blue. Spherical joints make noise. The question isn't if they make noise, it is a question of when they will make noise. The solution for an OE quite endlink is to use OE links or use Pedders links.

Any updates? Are your endlinks still quiet? Unfortunately I thought mine were quite but they pop when driving over a speed bump at and angle.

Spherical Ball End links make noise. Even the teflon coated ones will eventually make noise. You can help by keeping them clean and lubing them occasionally but then the lube attracts dirt. Bottom line Spherical ball end links will at some point make noise.

No I do not have Pedders endlinks. I have another brand. I'm sure they are installed correctly,torqued and locktite applied. They are quiet until I "twist" if you will, the suspension by traveling over a speed bump at an angle or when approaching an incline of a driveway at an angle. I have a single popping sound in this situation. I assumed it was the endlinks but not sure.

Sorry, the way I worded my question in the earlier post may lead someone to believe I had a problem with Pedders endlinks, THAT IS NOT THE CASE. I have a competitors endlink. I just don't want to trash anyone's products by mentioning names, especially when I have not 100% identified the problem.

Cool. Thank you for the clarification. Endlink noises for OE and aftermarket brands can frequently be solved by:

1. Squaring the joint to the mounting surface. The joint should the square to the sway bar and the strut tab. This allows the joint to work without binding. Sometimes when you tighten the bolt the entire endlink will shift out of position and create a bind. This can cause a noise or damage the endlink. Check the articulation and make sure they are correct.

2. Tighten the bolts. GM has a relatively low torque value for the endlink hardware. I really hate to type this -- make them mechanic tight. If you want to feel more sophisticated use the German torq spec Gudentight.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks, I was careful during installation to install them in a position that allowed for the greatest range of motion. I will re-evaluate. If I can't get this issue corrected I may have to invest in your endlinks. Just seems a shame to spend the money when mine only have a few hundred miles on them.

Hopefully you get it sorted. If not, there is always eBay to get some of your money back.
