Better than OEM, perfect fit

Very well built, stronger than the OEM part, comes with grease fittings and fit and finish are perfect.

I've replaced one of these before with a different brand. It had a nice hex hole in the end of the shaft to grab onto while tightening the nut. This one did not have that. It sure made installing the other one easier. This one required a big wrench that was tough to grab the shaft and tighten the bolt at the same time.

Zerk issues

By 

from Richmond, KY

Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

I installed these on by 08 G6 and the clunk went away but I noticed a crunch when turning full lock and hitting a bump in a parking lot. Upon inspection the zerk grease fitting is striking the fender well. My fear is on the passenger side there is a brake line it also rubbed. I am removing the Zerk to satisfy the problem and plugging the grease hole. Bad design this only occurs at full lock.

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

      There is a hex surface on the stud to hold with a wrench while you torque the nut on with a socket. The stud on orginal part had to be either held with a vise grip or torched off.

      There are also zerk fittings on each end.

            AS long as you have air tools and a good jack, installation was time consuming, but not due to the part; rather getting the originals off of the car. The problem was two weeks after install, I have to replace them again.

                    Heavier than OEM, looks like a good upgrade. BUT, the nute were so knurled to make them lock tite, that I could not get them on!! Plus, once on, the threads were so ruined, that the part would have to be replaced if ever removed. So, the part looks to be be a good part, but don't use the nuts provided, they are poorly made.

                          Hi Greg, glad to assist you! This is a sway bar link, not a sway bar and no bushings for a link. If you can tell me your vehicle's year, make, and model, I can suggest parts available for that vehicle.

                          With reference to your query on Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit - (Part No. DW-K80252), the steps for removing sway bar link is as follows. First Loosen the wheel lug nuts, jack up and lift the car. Remove the lug nuts and wheel then remove the nut holding the sway bar link to the sway bar. You will have to grip the shaft below the sway bar so it does not turn. Remove the bottom bolt with a socket wrench on the nut, and a wrench on the nut on the other side of the mounting point then remove the upper bolt.
