I have their endlinks, fantastic stuff. The shop that installed my sway bars said they were the best they had ever seen.

I am running their end links. They are top quality parts. They are WAY better than the parts I replaced them with.

Looks like some killer stuff!!! And they're located close to me too. I wish I could afford that rear sway bar they sell, that thing truly looks "wicked". And looks like they're coming out with a really nice bolt-in Roll Bar too.

Their stuff seems pretty nice from what I have seen. We offer them on our site. Just keep in mind that the rear endlinks you posted will not work on your 2012.

Best regards,

Haha
Not sure on the noise, probably clunking. I have that sound to when I hit patched asphalt on my street but think its the drop springs as the sound can come from the back also and stock links back there. And the sound was 3 months after the springs were put in which was way after the sways and links.

I'll know soon enough. Bought the set off of ddunerider. Just waiting on some replacement nylock nuts from Proven Wicked. I've ordered from them before and they have great customer service. They are now offering rubber boots for street use and those are on the way too. Hope I don't have any "clunking" issues with Pfadt sway bars and drop springs.

Yes keep us up to date. As mine could be that maybe the rubber boots may help

Will do! Dont really know how they would cause any noise unless they were improperly installed or bound up with grit. I suspect it is more of an issue with drop springs that weren't allowed to settle correctly. I will be installing next weekend and tracking 2 weeks after that.

My drop springs made some clunking sounds until I got them aligned properly in the seats and they settled in. No noise now and the end links only connect the sways to the frame. No rocket science if the are adjusted to the correct length and don't bind.

Yeah, my springs are set perfectly, bars are tight, maybe the links said not to have a problem as new design..lol
I dont mind much as to the noise on patched up pavement. If I do I'll watch to see how the new Hotchkis ones pan out, if its the links. But as they say all the stiffer parts will make some noise I guess

My Proven Wicked end links have been on for about 200 miles now. No issues. Biggest hassle was installing the boots. Had to resort to needle nose pliers, but i didn't rip them. BTW - the didn't recommend any grease under the boots.

I bought one of the first sets of links for my 2010. They feel like jelewry in your hands.

The last time I talked to shane he was in CA building a trophy truck for Robby Woods Racing.

I will have to check out the boots, must have.

Roost, any pics?

Sorry, no pics of the boots until I get my car back off the ground. They fit tight and used a small zip tie to seal up the end by the main shaft. The end on the threaded shaft was plenty tight. Contact Shane. Got mine relatively cheap, but they aren't on his site yet.

Yea, I just got a text from him. He confirmed it and gave me the price.

I googled them and found the pics.

Thanks for quick reply.

Robby is based out of ND, I was thinking of something else, senior moment (Is it really a senoir moment if it becomes routine?) Someone take my keys, I've had way to much work to drive.

I'm totally satisfied with the Proven Wicked end links. They have been through two track days (four 20 minute sessions each day) and have driven back and forth to work all week while in street config. No issues or clunking! I just wish they were more visible since they look like pieces of art.
