front end links ...opinions

Dear vendors i want a serious explano, opinions and reasoning about front endlinks, here are sum questions.

!. what material is best for street but can be raceable from time to time?
2. Are the lighter products really able to with stand the shock, and vibrational, torsional, fatigue forces better then stock? i.e steel parts.
3. are the teflon sperical beariings able to withstand the elements i.e dirt, water etc on the street as good as stock..since i live in nyc i need to know.

my fear is a piece that will bend or break with daily driving and under the streets that i live by .i.e potholes, snow, water, salt, etc.

The stock ones will fail WAY before any of the aftermarket ones will. I will see if I can find a stock set and take a photo of them next to the new Pfadt end links we just got in. The difference is ridiculous.

Hey guys. A stock endlink installed on an aftermarket bar will fail much earlier than an aftermarket endlink. We designed our endlinks to withstand the abuse inflicted upon them by years of use with aftermarket sway bars.

With our engineering expertise you can rest assured that all bases have been covered for reliability and durability. We operate out of Salt Lake City, and our testing is done in conditions ranging from 100+ degrees in the summer to 15 degrees in the winter. Our roads aren't the greatest either, and during the winter it's expected to see a good amount of salt on the roads.

The teflon lined bearings have more than enough load carrying capacity to handle the work required of an aftermarket endlink. After lots of testing with the same bearings in our Corvette lineup we are sure that properly installed they will provide many miles of use in what ever environment you care to use them in.

If you have any questions let us know!
