My OEM End Links had worn out ball sockets, and the plastic bushings inside them were shot, so I got a LOT of chatter and clunking in my SUV front end suspension noise on roads with lightly rough surfaces. I could not tell by looking at them, or even shaking them. This was on my 2005 Mazda Tribute, but this is the same for Ford Explorer SUV's and other SUV's in that range. These were easy to replace once the wheels are removed. Just two nuts per piece. The suspension chatter clunking noise is mostly all gone, there might be a loose busing in there now, but much better than before, and corning is a bit smoother. I used the Zerk Fittings enclosed and shot about 4 squirts of bearing grease with a grease gun, until it started to come out of the seal. The OEM ones were made out of pig metal some pot aluminum alloy, one was even bent. This ought to fix your problem as well.

Bought two for my Escape Hybrid. I encountered the bolt length issue others have described when trying to insert the bottom stud through the mounting holes in the stabilizer bar. However, turning the steering wheel afforded me enough clearance to insert both studs.

The original sway bars (pictured here) require installation of the zerk fittings, have an internally held stud (use a 4mm allen key to hold it) and require either a 14mm wrench or a ratcheting dogbone to install. It is a pain in the rear, as the required position of both tools does not allow much travel beyond 10 degrees or so.

Unfortunately, both sway bars instantly failed as the boots pulled off after two days and all the grease came out.

I took one back to return it under warranty and discovered that Moog has apparently slipped a new part in lieu of the one in the picture. The new one has much more robust joints, a thicker rod and internally secured boots. Additionally, the zerk fittings come pre-installed, rather than the self-tapping ones in the picture above. Best of all, it includes a square stator on each end that allows for securing of the stud while tightening the nut-- thus allowing for the use of a normal ratchet (15mm, though)

So, try to get the newer Moog sway bar, rather than the one in the picture (same part number, so no guarantees).

Blue threadlocker is also highly advisable on the studs-- these nuts are not self-locking and will likely begin to back off with time.

The Moog parts were way better quality than the factory ones we were replacing. I was amazed to see that they had grease fittings on both ends.
I highly recommend these over the factory ones - Well worth the extra cash!

These parts wee actually thicker and stronger than the Mitsubishi part. Additionally the Moog parts have zerk grease fittings on them what a bonus!! The fit was perfect. Test drove the car and what a difference was immediate. No noise from the front end.

Comments about MOOG Sway Bar Link Kit:

This went on pretty straightforward. Some comment it was hard to get the bolt through the mount hole and my easy solution was to turn the wheel by steering wheel which opens up more clearance space. The retaining nut makes it easy to tighten the bolt.

      Moog is an awesome part for suspension systems. Don't go for the cheaper part. Just go straight for the top of the line. :-)

      You get what you pay for, Moog suspension parts will outlast all others. OEM and standard replacement sway bar links will not hold up on a Ford Escape.

            Much better product than the ones on my SUV beforehand. Solid and easy to install (2 nuts total for each). The only issue I had was the really tight fit getting the bolt to fit in place. The bolt is longer than the original so it was really hard to get it in place. Not sure if that's just the case for my 2006 Mazda Tribute.

                A:

                Hi Les, happy to help you! If you hold the bolt but are still unable to turn the nut, you may indeed need a little penetrating oil. Spray a liberal amount of the oil on the nut and bolt, wait 5-10 minutes (longer if the bolt is really rusty, which it doesn't sound like it is in your case) then try to loosen the nut again. You'll want to put a towel or rag under the bolt to catch any excess oil that may drip off.

                The way to check them is to see if the bushings are worn out or the link is bent.
