End link sway bar help

So I just finished installing Tein S. Tech springs on my car, and when we pulled the front 2 springs out. I noticed that the sway bar wasn't even connected on both sides because the End Links were broken.

I searched but couldn't find any nice OEM ones, or I was wondering if its better to get aftermarket and is there a difference between them? like handling etc?


thanks in advance



for anyone else thats looking to do this, I found a great website that I followed which is thorough about the process.. Props to the poster http://www.ntpog.org/mods/fifth-spri...-springs.shtml



Since it was my first time doing this it took about 4 hours for the front 2, and they were the hardest. The Rear we had to buy a special tool so it was actually faster to do it and only took about 2 hours.

you can either make custom endlinks like Hawkze did:
http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=1474587


or energy suspension's:
http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/pric..._Bar_End_Links


or neuspeed makes them, but they come WITH the sway bar, so you'll hafta find them separately.

thanks for the link.. yeah car handles like crap now. I guess my main question is would the universal end link from Energy suspension work with my stock sway bar. And if so what size should I get?

If you contact ImportRP through AIM ( or go toimportreplacementparts.com) they'll be able to point you in the right direction. My end links were destroyed by my SusTech sway bar...and I got new ones and haven't had any trouble since.

One thing though, they cost a bit more than 15 bucks.
