Factory links are not adjustable; you can get adjustable front links which I guess would be good for racing so you can corner-balance the car, but otherwise I wouldn't bother; for the rear if you want to adjust them you need to cut them - the ideal mounting position for the rear bar is centered over top of the mount of the control arm (link pointing straight up and down), so if you lower the car you could cut the link shorter but be careful how much you cut off!

Edit: just noticed you have a 2010. If you don't have the new style rear bar I highly suggest going that route. What I said about cutting the link applies to the new style links. I guess with the old style bar your adjustability is pretty limited even with modifications.

I have second version of pedders endlinks. They are adjustable. No cutting. Just spin heads to adjust length.
Old bar has 3 holes for adjustments. I will keep an eye on it as I install the coilovers.

Thank you for this thread!! Just took this info and gave to tech at Chevy dealership here in San Antonio. They even allowed me to go in the back and watch them do the timing of the bushings.

if you had used the Search Function to look for this Thread in the last year, it would not have worked, as the Thread was deleted and we finally got it back up last week!

Thanks to the Admins for bringing it back!

Was this ever answered? This is a really good question!

So if I’m understanding correctly here, you all are cracking loose torque to yield bolts and then re-torquing them?

Poly and Derlin bushings do not need to be timed. They have a metal sleeve that the bushing rotates on(free floating), oem rubber bushings are attached.
