Bolt was too short, so I had to c-clamp the a-arm to the sway bar to get enough thread to start the prevailing torque nut that was not acorned on one side like the Moog. I then tightened the bolt until the washers compressed the bushings into the a-arm and sway bar holes and found that the bottom bushing split. I returned this part and replaced it with the Moog part and tightened the assembly until it was compressed the same way - no issue. Not sure what type of bushing material this is or what they are told it is by the manufacturer, but the quality control isn't very good and I won't buy their product again for a part that should last 10+ years. You cuurently can't buy the Moog part on-line so go to your local store to get the better part! It costs more, but you get what you pay for!

Bolt is too short

Cons

  • Difficult To Use

Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

Bolt is too short. Ended up buying 3/8 X 9 1/2" bolt and nylock nut. Had to elongate hole to gain more clearance for the washer and used a 1/4" drive 9/16 socket to start the nut on the bolt. Bad design of both truck and link kit.

    Nuts on bolts were ovaled. Reused old nuts. Get what you pay for. Know how long your bolts and spacer need to be so you order correct part

      Initially the part did not line up with the hole, but after raising and lowering the front suspension, it was a breeze. The metal clanking sound disappeared and the steering wheel did not roll like it did before the install

            Got 2 of these, one had blue grommets, one had black grommets. The bolt included with the blue grommets was a little short. Had to jack the suspension around to get the nut started.

                    Not much to say about a link - it does the job. Without testing it until it fails in 10 or 20 years who knows one from the other. This cheaper one seems similar to the more expensive ones. I'm fine with it.
