Default endlinks

Had whiteline swaybars put in but there connected with the standard endlinks. The oem ones look flimsy, the bushings are fairly dead, and one of the front ones keeps coming loose giving my car an ugly rattly clunk on uneven surfaces. There totally going in the bin and looking for replacements as we speak. Just wondering what other members are running on their swaybars, any advice on what to get/avoid.. the whiteline ones seem like the simple idea, there cheap but dont look much better than the oem ones and i read about people having similar (unscrewing) problems as im already having. The kartboy ones look a little better but mixed reviews about them too. leaning towards the perrin ones, anyone have experience with these?? compatability? urethane bushing ones compared to ball links? Give us your two cents worth anyways!

I had issues using whitelines KLC32 on the front, which are like the dog bone type.
They way they fitted didn't look right and made creaking noises on take off...So I switch too the KLC139 which is like the oem type but HD, and they are fking awesome..

I think your rear links are different to mine so I can't comment on those....

I have the whiteline HD end links front and rear, they're a bit squeaky at times, but do the job alright!

Kart Boy offerings look good. That's what I'll be purchasing once my front ones perish. Soksta just bought a set.

I also went with the whiteline H/D end links which make the OEM ones look china spec, supplied by Mao cheaper than Whiteline direct and fitted myself, followed manufactures directions and checked tension after first 100Ks no squeeks, no rattles and no clunks and are as flash as gold capped teeth.

IMO the Whiteline HD rear end link for the 08+ really needs to be redesigned.
Had mine fail on the car due to how it was made and it also pulls the rear lower control arm in, bending it out of shape.

Will hopefully get the Karyboy end links on soon, they do look quite nice

The kartboy ones look just like the perrin ones, very solid indeed with just no bullshit bolts and bushings instead of the fiddly looking ball joints. Just booked in at WA suspensions and they advised the whiteline HD ones.. Also got told that the ball link ones are the only ones compatible with my swaybars.. News to me but may have dodged a bullet.. i like the look and concept of solid links more but fingers crossed on these ones.. also getting anti lift kit installed and suspension bushings all checked/ replaced.. wheels alignment yada yada. Eek story soksta! I really hope these don't cause me dramas.. I hate doing things twice or being sold second rate products. prefer to lay down some decent cash and improve it than just replace things.. thanks all for your inputs anyways
