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:

      These were not the most expensive option available but the quality appears to be just fine. The construction looks to be good and perhaps better than the ones I removed. These come with grease fittings so that you can add grease periodically. There is a hexagon (nut shaped) shoulder to help hold the ball and socket shaft while tightening the nut. That made it easier to install and easier to remove if it ever becomes necessary. Being able to add grease helps to push out moisture and other contaminants.

          Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

          Bought this to replace a broken sway bar end link on a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager with 220K miles on it. The most difficult part of the job was removing the old broken unit. Was impossible to loosen the old rusted nuts - I ended up having to grind off the top bolt and hacksaw the bottom one due to no access with the grinder. But once that was done, the new one went in pretty effortlessly. The DriveWorks link is better designed, has a welded bolt on the ball joint to secure the bolt for tightening. OEM equipment used a torx bit in the end of the bolt shaft to keep it from turning which is awkward to work with, and useless when trying to loosen the old rusted nuts for removal. This is a good exact fit replacement part at a good price.

              I installed it just two days ago. It was a bit of a struggle getting the old part out. But once I did the new one went in with out a hitch. It fits well and does what it's designed to do. As I said, though, it has only been installed for a couple of days so I can't say how it's going to hold up in the long term.

                  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.

                      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.

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.
