Bought two kits. Boxes were two different sizes but labeled the same. One was the wrong part. The other was the correct part and it works well. I did like the appearance of the bushings on the wrong kit better than the ones on the correct kit.

These were installed on a 1996 Ford Explorer 5 months ago. During these past five months the links had to be tightened twice due to the bushings compressing to roughly 1/2 of the original thickness. During the process of turning into pancakes, all four bushing pieces have either split completely or have cracked to a point that they will split shortly. A second issue is that after these were installed and the vehicle driven for 1 day, I checked the links and found the driver's side nut was at the base of the bolt. After taking the assembly apart, I found that the threads were stripped. Thank goodness for being a pack rat and not throwing things away. The original nut and bolt have held up the same as they have for the past decade or two. Based on my experience, find a better part. I am a fan of Advance but these parts are not worth your time or money.

Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

I replaced both of my links on my 96 Explorer with these. After about 5 months the driver side has somehow loosened by itself. The passenger side both sets of bushing have cracked in half. I will be tightening up the driver side and getting a warranty replacement for the passenger side. If these fail again I will be returning for the better quality Moog parts

      The parts fit and were easy to install. The problem was that the bushings cracked after just a few hundred miles of driving. It's like they were dried out. Advance took the parts back and I got a different brand.

              Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

              First, the OEM link uses has 5/8" bolt head and nut. Surprise, most everything else on my Ford is Metric. This product had a 5/8" bolt head and a 17mm nut.
              Second, the bolt on one of the units I install broke when the nut was only a quarter of the way on. Luckily I was able to use one of the original bolts that was in good shape.
              Hopefully the bushings at least a few years. The originals lasted 12 years. I will look at these again at 5k miles and report back.

                        Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                        It is not hard to install but you will need to have the vehicle on a jack or preferably a jack stand and a jack under the lower control arm to jack it up so the bolt reaches all the way through. The hard part is getting the old one out. I had to hacksaw it out on my truck due to norther salt/rust.
