Energy Suspension end link question

Hi Peeps,

I am looking to get polyurethane bushings and replace all the bushings on my car but i have one burning question:

Does anyone know what the length of the endlinks are for a 5th gen lude?



i am looking for length of 'A' ...the only problem i have is that the measurments on the net are in imperial measurements and we dont use imperial measurements in the uk.

and im a bit confused when it comes to using a conversion table.?

Help please.

Re: Energy Suspension end link question

i just need to know the part number which applies to my car. you sxee the prob is this part is a universal fitment. but you have to buy the correct length end link - the only way you can find the correct fitment is to measure the gap which is 'a' in the pic..

Re: Energy Suspension end link question

Vehicle must be on level ground (not jacked up) with wheels supporting it. Make sure stabilizer bar end eyelet (B) is parallel with the control arm (C). Many times they are not. You may be required to use a slightly longer or shorter sleeve length than the original. Measure sleeve length (A) and compare to the chart to find the correct set.
Length of 'A' Part Number

1" 98122
1-5/8" 98120
2" 98123
2-3/8" 98125
2-5/8" 98117
2-7/8" 98118
3-3/8" 98119
3-9/16" 98124
4-1/4" 98149
4-1/2" 98121

what i need to know is what length is the end link on a 5th gen - i cant get under mr car coz its too flipping low
