      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

      I have a '99 Suburban. The left sway bar end link broke, so I decided to replace them both. Apparently, some genius decided to supersede the part for '88-'99 trucks with the part that fits '98-'07 of the newer body style. Too bad it doesn't fit. The newer ones have bolts that are 1" longer than the originals and sleeves that are 1.25" longer. I couldn't get the nuts started, so I gave up and cut 0.25" off the sleeves to make them fit. With the suspension at full droop, the end of the bolt is pretty close to the ABS wires on the upper control arm, which isn't very comforting. Thanks, aftermarket cheapskates, for providing parts that don't fit because it's easier for you.

        Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

        I had a front end clunk from my '01 Yukon that turned out to be a bad sway bar end link. The nut on top backed off, leaving the end link floating in space.

        The OEM ones lasted for 250,000 miles and these are the same design, so I expect a good service life out of them as well. It wasn't worth it to me for the upgraded units for the application.

        Installation is easy as long as you can jack the vehicle up to take tension off the old sway bar links. The top nut isn't a locking design on these, so I used red threadlocker to keep it secure.

          Contrary to other reviews,bolts ARE NOT too short. Control arm must be raised with a jack in order to have bolt go through sway bar.Sway bar moves up 3 to 4 inches once tension is released. this part is very easy to install took less than 20 minutes.

                good replacement for stock sway bar links, I use these on my 02 Avalanche I have used the moog brand before on an explorer I had and these work just the same but may not last as long. But you can get 2 or 3 sets of these for the same price as one set of moog sway bar links.

                  Put them on my 97 k1500 since the bushings on the old ones melted, on mine I had to cut the old ones inhalf, take an impact, and vice grips

                  Put impact on nut/bolt put vice grips on sleeve
                  Pull trigger and it strips the sleeve off and loosens....had to do that 4x it was a real PITA
                  then for the new ones I kept having to Jack both control arms up and dowm so I could get the new end links in there...real PITA
                  The new ones look good, havent really noticed anything different....I hope they last
