The original equipment suspension sway bar link that was originally on the car had plastic spacers. The Driveworks suspension sway bar link purchased at Advance Auto Parts had metal spacers. The metal spacers are much more durable. The rest of the part was of equal quality to the original. The rubber grommets and the nut and screw assembly was the equal of the original equipment. The suspension sway bar links fit perfectly into the sway bar. Assembly was quick and easy with a no special tools necessary.

Cheap product quality, but then again the price reflects that aspect. An interfering thread nut is used that has an undersized root diameter. This creates an interference between the nut and the fastener, which deforms the threads on the fastener. In this case stripping the threads on the fastener, not the nut, thus ruining the assembly.

          I have used this parts brand numerous times and have always been satisfied with the quality and fit of the item and the price is much more reasonable than many other sources. The online order system works very well and saves time. When you're an old guy on a limited budget who has the time to do the repair but doesn't want to have to do the repair over because of a poor quality part that doesn't fit and function as it should, this is a product you can depend on for quality and reasonable cost.

                        Installed on a 2002 pontiac grand prix getting the old one out was a chore in itself because of rust but installing the new one was simple and seems to be better quality than the original. Ordered online with other parts I needed and everything was ready when I went to pick it up. Would definately recommend this product and do it yourself to save money!

                            I installed urethane sway bar bushings at the same time. Installation of both was easy. What a difference these made in steering response and handling! The steering is much more responsive and there is NO sway or leaning in the front-end while cornering. I should have done this upgrade sooner!!

                              This comes with 4 FLAT washers-even though the picture shows the correct 2 end CONCAVE washers. I will need to use old concave washers. Why did they make this kit with all flat? BAD-

                                A:

                                A sway bar is a torsion bar mounted laterally on a suspension and is designed to reduce side sway. The sway bar attempts to accomplish this by transferring movement from one side of the suspension to the other. This is done through the connection of a torsion bar to each side of an axle by flexible links.
