Moog's Sway Bar Endlinks
Many people already know what a sway bar, or anti-roll bar, does. But what about the endlinks? To put it simply, endlinks are what make the sway bar work. Endlinks connect the sway bar to the rest of the suspension. Without endlinks, your sway bar would just hang there taking up space. With that said, Moog offers a few different types of endlinks, each with their own advantages...
Serving as the OE replacement and the most economical version, Moog's rubber end links will act as a direct replacement for the stock end links on your vehicle. The rubber end links are easy to assemble and provide cushion to absorb vibration and noise from the sway bar to the control arm. This is an OE replacement part not a performance part. When installing, the suspension may have to be compressed to complete installation.
The next step up in performance and durability is Moog's Thermoplastic end links. These end links are made of thermoplastic and provide additional handling benefits over the traditional rubber. The thermoplastic end links are very durable and will last longer than OE rubber end links. Tougher and a little harder, thermoplastic end links are resistant to oils, salt, ozone, weather and can absorb substantial loads. During installation, the suspension may have to be compressed to complete the install.
Moog's polyurethane end links have very little give and thus give the best overall performance boost. A grade 8 bolt is used for strength and has an anodized finish for corrosion resistance. Each bushing is designed with a lip, allowing the washers to be centered during installation to ensure a proper and maintained alignment. Moog's polyurethane material is resistant to oil, heat and the ozone. These end links also solve a very common installation problem that most end links have. Featuring 1-inch barrel nut and washer, the need to compress the suspension to start a thread is eliminated. The barrel nut will reach down into the bushing to grab the bolt thread.
