Sway Bar Endlinks

I just ordered BMR's FE4 swaybars, and I'm trying to find a good endlink to go with it. What would y'all recommend?

They all pretty much perform the same, so whatever you can get your hands on.

The factory endlinks aren't horrible, but they can get beat up pretty quickly if you really push the car alot (auto-xing).

Did you go with Part # SB037 or 039?

Best regards,

We've been using our Posi-Links for years with great success:
12mm:
http://www.ridetech.com/store/12-mm-elbow.html
http://www.ridetech.com/store/12-mm-straight.html

10mm:
http://www.ridetech.com/store/10-mm-elbow.html
http://www.ridetech.com/store/10-mm-straight.html

If there's enough interest we could supply a direct bolt-in kit. Our strut moves the sway bar mount, so the link in our kit is shorter than stock.

I have the Pfadt. Don't really have much experience/knowledge for the brands still in business.

BMR's ELK005 will work well for you, or Detroit Speed's 031411 is more affordable. Let me know if you have any questions.

Yes, the front ELK005 end links will work great with the front bar in the SB037 Kit. But for the rear end links, you will have to use factory links or find another aftermarket company.

The factory FE4 rears are good. DSE also has their rear endlinks which are awesome! They actually articulate with the sway bar movement rather than relying on the deflection of the factory rubber bushings.

Part # 042305

I have the Sphon ones. They are noisy, despite the claim to being quiet.

Those are for the older FE3 sway bars. The OP is updating to the FE4 style.

The elbows look familiar. Are they available in reverse thread(nut side)?

Have you tried them with the Pfadt Z-Spec rear bar? How's the clearance with a larger CV axle?

We haven't installed them on the Pfadt bars yet, but they should provide plenty of clearance to push the bar up and out of the way of the axle shafts. On that note - the DSE bars fit great with room to spare with the DSS 1000 HP axles.

Best regards,

Tyler

Thanks for all the help I wound up going with the factory end links for now.
