Aftermarket sway bars, stock endlinks?

Andre- Sway bars don't need anything other parts to be effective. At some point, they will break the OEM links. That doesn't mean that they're not effective without them. Go

Go find a used set of 350 sways. You will love the feel. Sways are the best bang for the buck mod I've bought on every single car I've modded. They transform the car.

For you nay'sayers about aftermarket sway bars. If you haven't tried them. You don't know what you are missing! And have no business talking about them because you have no experince with them.

The ones I was looking at was from my 08350z. & of course what I tested. Are you saying the 370 sway bars are not as good?

It's not important. Let's end this & enjoy your mods.

I think I paid $150 or less.

Just to compare. The SPL's are about $200 a set.

That's about $500 for sway bars and end links. Might as well buy HFCs...

You don't have to buy the end links immediately. Might as well wait until the OEM ones break. And sways will be a much more worthwhile mod than HFCs. You'll notice them every time you turn the wheel.

Decided to hold off on the end links until they break or next spring. Ordered a set of Avant Gardes M310's instead. Anyone have a lead on a full set of TPMS's???? Appreciate all the responses, place is a great wealth of knowledge.

Why do the stock end links end up breaking?

I asked earlier and didn't get any responses, can a suspension guru chime in on whether both bars should be upgraded or just the front on this car?
TIA.

If I wait till my stock endlinks snap. Will it hurt the car or the new swaybars?
