Better than original

By 

from N. Ohio

Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

The links appear better than the originals. The 10.9 rated bolt is heavier than the originals. The metal spacer is better than the original plastic piece. Depending on where the old one breaks, it can be a challenge getting the remains of the old one out.

    Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

    I had to replace the sway bar links on my Buick. I got these and they worked great. I did replace both because it makes it easier, Because if you raise both wheels up at the same time it takes the pressure off the side you are working on. Then take both sides off and put both new ones on before you tighten them.I had my grandson put one side on while I did the other to keep the other side from falling out while I worked on the other side.They worked great and I would recommend these to anyone who needs them.

        Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

        Part works as intended and was a good value. I inspected the part at the store based on other reviews and found my parts were fine. Specifications were lacking so here is what I got:
        1.5" steel spacer, plated.
        Steel bolt, plated, no hardness grade markings so presumably grade 3.
        Bushings are not rubber but some sort of polyurethane and black not blue.
        Bushings are firm but do 'squish' when fully torqued.
        Mount with nut up, helps to start both before final tightening, or jack one wheel to push other end of sway bar up or down as needed. May have to put jackstand under sway bar end to position right.. you get the point.
        Drove it to work this morning and what a nice change to roll. Original one (11 yrs) was snapped off other I had to cut off with Sawsall but it was about to snap too.
        2005 Cadillac Deville FE1 (std soft) suspension.
        Check under spare tire cover in truck for original build codes like FE1 or FE3 (soft). This is the right part for these two codes.

        Driveworks description did say this was improved version and was 50¢ more than the same looking part without the 'improved' claim. I cant tell what is improved about it, but for 50¢ I gave it a try.

        Good luck !

            Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

            One of the bushings had an air bubble or another type of discontinuity. This led to a fracture during installation. Poor quality casting where ever this was manufactured. Nice blue color, though.

                Comments about Driveworks Suspension Sway Bar Link Kit:

                The original sway bar link kit on the 2001 Buick Park Avenue for which I purchased this kit has polyurethane sway bar link bushings. Obviously, I wanted to replace the links with the same. This link kit was only a couple of dollars more than the cheaper kit with rubber bushings but much less than the Moog equivilant. Comparing these with the Moog parts, the only difference I could find was that this kit had red colored bushings whereas the Moog kit had blue colored bushings. The bolts and washers in the kit are plated just like the Moog parts. The low price made this an easy decision!

                      This will only replace one side. To take care of both sides, a quantity of two(2) must be ordered.
