I wasn't doubting, just looking for an opinion from someone who has installed what I am fixing to install. PQ and Emma have been pretty straight up with me, that's all, nothing personal.

Well put, that's why I was asking the question to PQ and Em, just a different opinion and since they have always been honest with me, like you, I thought it was good. Not trying to stir the pot>

No offense taken, and no offense intended.... The reason I say Pete is the go to guy on forum, is because of his time spent helping folks publicly.

Compare the bold stats to the others. Granted, some posts are sales info, but the majority of his posts are very informative.

Nope. OEM end links. Still have OEM.

Yes, one came loose, TWICE. Luckily I had a bolt that would fit the first time, and GTAHVIT had a bolt that fit the second.

I check them almost on a daily basis now.

Is there any specific reason they are coming off so regularly? I am going with Pfadt end links just because.

I heard that they increased their torque specs on the bolts and the teflon nuts are basically a one time use items?????

Just trying to make a note of things I need to check.

Where they sit make it hard to get good torque on them while laying under a car with not a lot of clerance. Odd angle for me. You have to hold the center Star Head bolt from one side while torquing down the nut on the other side. Just hard for me to get good torque in the awkeward position with no lift.

Not sure on the teflon nut thing. I used the OEM links.
