For everyday use, you'll probably be ok. Just know that the stiffer bars will increase the stress on the stock endlinks under any circumstance. There are people running stock endlinks with any of the bars available and many have them haven't had a problem. It's always a possibility though.

Something I like about Pfadt sway bar, it is lighter than stock but yet the difference in size is not that much.

Thats why I feel that this sway bar in specific is not pushing the stock endlinks hard.

I dont know, but its only a feeling

The Pfadt sways are actually substantially stiffer than the OEM bars and I suggest using the Pfadt endlinks. I've seen OEM links break on the street...

Kind regards,

I do not expect any OEM link to bend eventually, this is more just so people area aware that some people HAVE seen them bend. GM increased the thickness of the front links a fair bit on the new suspension, but you can't really blame them for designing a part for their own requirements, and NOT that of the aftermarket.

The bottom line is that the stock links, when used as design will have no problems, but some people with upgraded sways have had problems, especially in competition on a road course. If you are ever concerned about it, that is why we make upgrades:thumb up:

Thanks for choosing Pfadt!

Take an endlink off and stop by your local Fastenal. A nyloc or quenched nut will do the job, but they are single use style fasteners. With all suspension bolts and nuts LocTitie is your friend.

Thanks.... I am aware of one time use... I'm hoping it will just stay on for at least a few months.

So loctite and skip removing the endlink and bringing it to a fasenal? Will try!!!
