This was not the most expensive part option on the Advance website but for the money it is a good choice. This sway link is all steel, has grease fittings and fit perfect.It is not really a critical front end part if it fails so I didnt think spending extra money was worth it.

Not like the one pictured but so far doesn't seem to make a difference. The one pictured has wrenching flats on the joint end to allow a person to hold that side with a wrench. The one I received had an Allen head socket opening on the end. I was disappointed but it didn't matter because it went on without spinning, no back up Allen socket needed. Perhaps a different story if it needs to come off in several years.

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

      Something like a sway bar endlink should be a quick and easy install, but not when you buy this sway bar end link.
      the oblong nut is way too tight and the shaft is way too loose. so not even an impact will help you. Once you strip out the cheap metal allen head hole, its time to become creative.
      surprised to see something like this wouldnt have a hex on the backside to hold the shaft.

      I put these on 4 months ago....clunking and popping right from the start. Replaced with Moogs....no sounds at all. Moogs cost 3x as much, but dont waste your money on these. Unless your link is fractured, save up until you can afford Moogs.

            I purchased a set of these to install while replacing ball joints, they were available to purchase online and pick up at the store. I saved by entering a code they provided not a bad deal. when I arrived at the Ludington store they had my order ready. I found this purchasing option very convenient, I read some reviews before I added them to my cart. It did not make any sense to me to not replace these since they had to be unbolted to replace the ball joints and struts. They are specific for each side so you want to make sure you order the correct side and not just two for the job.

              Top is not marked so it gives you an opportunity to use your reasoning powers. Sway Bar has grease fittings that need to be lubed.
