Just replaced both sway bar links on my daughter's Jeep this weekend. Fit and finish were good, but I was very surprised to find they DID NOT come with the blue polyurethane bushings that are in the picture. They come with plain rubber bushings instead. Otherwise, they worked OK. If you want the poly bushings, you will have to buy the separate bushing kit and swap them out.

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

      I had to replace both of these on my wifes' Jeep Cherokee. The hardest part of the whole job was getting the old bolts to come loose. I ended up using the Sawzall to cut the top nut off. Reassembly was simple and straightforward. Before I replaced them there was a shimmy in the front end when I would hit a bump at any speed, it felt like the wheels were coming off. I was also getting rapid wear on the front tires. After replacing them, the "death wobble" is gone. The Jeep now drives very smooth. One of these had been broken for a while, the other had just let go.

        These are inexpensive quality replacement sway bar links, they arent fancy but they will return the vehicles handling to normal. Comes with all supplied hardware. This is a idea replacement for a XJ,TJ or WJ that is used mainly on the street with some weekend adventures, not a dedicated trail rig.

            Getting the old, broken part off was the toughest part of this project. The new part fit perfectly. I had replaced the other side two years ago with the same brand. Inspection of that part revealed no detectable wear or bushing deterioration. With the on-line discount and local pick-up, I don't think you can find a better deal.
