Sway Bar link kit

Don't have to use allen key/socket like OEM for installation. Seems rugged and well made.

Replaced both sides, had 2 different boxes. The 'plain' boxed part worked great, the grease fitting was on the socket at a perfect 90 degree angle to the rod and both ends could be greased without problems. The other box with the 'driveworks' logo printed all over it, the grease fitting was about 10 degrees from 90 (towards the rod) and the lower grease fitting, by the axle, CANNOT BE GREASED WHILE ON THE VEHICAL. A 45 degree grease fitting would fix said problem.

Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

If you bounce the 99 grand caravan you can see the top ball of the joint moving. It made a load pop noise when going over a bump. there are not very many pot holes here. A pain to install with a Allen wrench bolt head. So i would go with the Moog brand instead. But did get a free replacement with a receipt. Make sure to make copies of each receipts they fade even in a folder.

Sway Bar Link Only Lasted 4 months

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

      Appearance of product looked superior to OEM since it had grease fittings and shaft was larger in diameter. Unfortunately, after only 4 months of usage(6200 miles) the part starting making noise like the OEM one at 102,000 miles. Removed part and replaced with a Moog. The Driveworks part ball socket was completely loose, it was still full of grease. I am going to stick to OEM or Moog steering and suspension parts from now on.

        The price was right, only because of the on-line coupons. Otherwise it would have only been a competitive price.
        Like that the link had a hex on the end to prevent turning of the joint while tightening. The original had an allen hole which is not as easy.

          Good fit. Exactly the same length as the original equipment. Comes with 2 bolts to tighten / untighten, instead of a bolt and a 6-side hole requiring a special screwdriver in the original equipment. I think it is better than the original equipment.

                Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

                I replaced my struts 2 years ago and bought these Driveworks sway bar links to replace the stock links. They fit well and were easy to install, but you really need to make sure you tighten the nuts really tightly.This was difficult to do using an adjustable wrench so I ended up buying an 18mm box wrench specifically for this task. Anyway, after a few initial tightening hiccups they seemed to work well... for almost a year. The passenger side link went bad and started rattling. I took it back to Advance and they replaced it for free, no questions asked. I installed the second one and it too worked well, this time for about 9 months. Ugh! Took it back and they gave me a cash refund. I'm going with the $55 Moog links. In this case I think you get what you pay for. No skimping on suspension pieces from now on. It's too much of a pain to keep tearing it down to replace broken parts.

                  I have an old van with 150K mi on it, so I just want a low-cost serviceable part to keep it going a while longer and this fit the bill. The nuts supplied with the link are worthless. I threw them away and used the original ones with Loc Tite.

                      I'm happy to help, Pdidnot! From my research the Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit (Part No. DW-K7258) should utilize 18mm wrenches for installation and removal. A repair manual for your vehicle will provide specific instructions for the replacement on your 1996-2014 Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth minivan.

                      The Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit (Part No. DW-K7258) does not come pre-greased. We have to grease it before installation. Install the new sway bar by putting it on the car and installing the end links and then the brackets that hold the bar to the body. If the new bar came with new bushings, grease these up and slide them onto the new sway bar before installing it. If you do not have new bushings, remove the old ones by sliding them off the old sway bar and installing them on the new bar. Ensure that the new sway bar is installed in the correct orientation and then tighten the bolts.

                      I assume you are referring to the front damper ball joint housing. They screw into the base of the damper and the ball joint then screws into this housing.
