      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

      I keep very accurate records and these links lasted exactly 5000 miles before I replaced and they started making noise 1000 before that. I went to exchange them and they had to return them since I bought them on line and there is not the option to exchange in computer. Then i had to repurchase at a higher price since they could not match the discounts i got on line. Pay a little more and buy Moog. I have had to replace all the driveworks front end parts in this car.

        Only lasted a few months. But then again the ones I got from Moog didn't last much longer. Seems to be a problem in the Grand Marquis

            Replaced both during summer of 2014. Passenger side went bad 3 months later.(covered under warranty) Driver side lasted 8 months before had to replace. Will never buy a Driveworks product again. Spend the extra $ and get a MOOG.

              Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

              There was nothing to keep the bottom stud from turning with the nut. I had to jack up a pipe under the sway bar to put enough pressure to tighten it without it spinning. There is an online video about the later models having a torx hole in the stud to keep it from turning.Why can't this one have that? It also said the new joint is tight enough to keep the stud from turning with the nut, but this brand spun easily.

              About Me Casual Driver

              Pros

              • Self-locking washers

              Cons

              • Grease boots don't attach
              • Only 1 year warranty

              Best Uses

              • Large Cars

              Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

              I needed replacement sway bar end links for my 97 Crown Vic. When I purchased these, I was happy to see grease fittings and self-locking nuts, but very disappointed to notice that the grease boots don't attach with clamps. They simply "fit" into place which IMHO is minimally suitable. I returned them before leaving the parking lot. What a hassle. Don't waste your time on these. All I keep hearing is Moog is the best brand, but you will pay dearly for Moog also.

              If they came in a two pack that would be great. I now have one side fixed and now the other is going out.
