      I bought these againsed my better judgment after I read the bad reviews. Fell apart after two days. I torqued them by hand to spec, properly filled them with grease, and still no good. Stay away.

      Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

      Multiple bad reviews for these items. I was hestitant but made the purchase. Being the first time I ever installed Sway Bar Links I was pleased. Link fit great. Only issues are with the two piece 90 degree zerks I received with this item and the upper ball joints, they are flimsy and fell apart trying to install. The other concern is the lower grease location, it should be 180 degrees out for the passenger side. It is currently inside the pinch area and pushes on the rubber boot.

          Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

          researched this part extensively and decieded on the driveworks brand. i'm not sure it was the best choice but i was short on cash and it was half the price of the Moog replacement. removed and replaced without difficulty but the top bolt did not seat completely into the factory hole. i put a micrometer on it and it was a couple thousands larger than the old part? so much for an exact fit. i torqued it to about 155 so i know its tight, i just hope it doesn't snap off as it sticks out the rear of the hub assembly about 1/4". next time i'm in the store i'm going to check a moog part and see what it reads. i'm just sayin'!

            • Q:

              I managed to get old one off. The sway bar puts upward pressure on the link. Should I remove or loosen the sway bar to install new link??
