For the autoX, if I do it, I'll use these. I may just use these on the strip as well just because.

But, I'm gonna borrow some drag wheels for a pass or two.

Are those the stock end links, Randy? I bought the Pfadt end links with my sways. I hope I don't have the same issue. My car isn't at home right now to check.

Stock end links. But it's not the end link that broke, it's the part of the arm that the link attaches to.

The lower control arms and toe link arms are made out of stamped Sheetmetal. none of the rear arms can stand up to any kind of abuse.

If you changed the swaybars (which you did), the weakest part is the lower control arm and the end link isn't far behind it.

Aftermarket lower control arms from any of the vendors are worth the price. I have the spohn arms with the Delrin bushings. They are made from 3/16" steel plate and are boxed for strength. Not cheap, but not going to break, either.

I would get the Lower control arm from Pete, and change them out to aftermarket ones when you can afford them.
