Need New Endlinks for Rear Sway Bar Suggestions??

I have always had a knocking and squeaking sound coming from the rear of the car, so today I finally decided to get it looked at it. Shop told me the end links were pretty much toast, so I need to get new ones.

I have a eibach rear sway bar, so which endlinks will go with it?

Thanks.

BMR has adjustable ones, would think they would work with just about any setup. Maybe PM JDP or Apex and see what they have that would work for you. Both are super helpful shops.

You have FE3 suspension unless you updated your LCA's to FE4. The FE3 rear sway bar mounting bracket is very weak and has been known to break. Besides upgrading your endlinks get the endlink mount stiffeners. If you have FE4 LCA's the factory ZL1 endlinks are good and quiet.

Do the BMR endlinks work on any years? Do they sell the mount stiffeners?

Be sure they will fit your FE3 sways. That is what you have, right? FE3 sway in black, aftermarket FE4 sway in orange. The FE4 is noticeably longer.

Again, if the suspension and sways were not updated to FE4, 2010 to early 2012's came with the FE3 suspension. You would have the shorter black bar as shown and would need the links as I showed as an example in the previous post with links. The stiffener is shown also. You do not need adjustable links, but, if they are a good deal go for it. Do not use another factory GM endlink. You may want to consult with JDP or Apex on Monday. Good luck.

Yes, our ELK006 Rear End Links will work with any FE3 style rear sway bar. And yes, the End Link Mount Braces (ELK009) are highly recommended with any aftermarket sway bar when using factory lower control arms.

The BMR Endlinks and braces would be my suggestion as well. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you and thanks to those who recommended us!

what's the benefit of the sway bar endlinks anyways? I just replaced my front driver side because it was bent for some reason. I replaced it with an OEM one.

The factory 10-11 endlinks are weak and can bend and break, and can also deflect causing the sway bars to feel softer than they really are. Ultimately they will make your sway bars more effective.
