What Sway Bar End Link Bushings are you using?

I have been using Energy Suspension Polyurethane end link bushings. They get chewed up in no time.

The sway bars are factory WS6 front and rear. The polyurethane pivot bushings are fine. Only having a problem with the end link bushings.

What is going on?

I have those as well. VERY nice product.

I also went with the greasable sway bar mounts that top-downsolutions sells. Nice being able to re-grease the sway bar bushings down the road without removing the sway bars. I went with the black polygraphite option (apparently they squeak less than the red polyurethane). Mine don't squeek at all. So I'd say if you're re-doing this stuff, get the whole package from them.

Re: What Sway Bar End Link Bushings are you using?

What is "stock length"?

What I'm getting at is, do the ends of the bar, where it makes the 90 between the bushings and the end links, sit level?

These cars usually want about a 2" length, that being about the length that fits the height that they usually seem to sit at after the stock springs have sagged about an inch or an inch and a half. I haven't the vaguest clue what "stock" is, on a tape measure, but with sagging springs, it's gonna be too long.

Thanks. I'll check. I have "stock" GM WS6 springs and front and rear sway bars. I just ordered what was supposed to be for my car....

I bought the Spohn Spherical Front Sway Bar End Links. I just got them installed, car isn't on the road yet. Hope they are worth the $80...
