Im searching all over, I need some adjustable front swaybar endlinks asap

Agent47 makes a kit, i go to order and the site says unable to find, I emailed Mike from Agent47 and im waiting for a response. Anyone know of any companies that make some? Ive seen the home made ones with U brackets but im looking for a proper kit, before i home depot special it.


Reason for these links? Im going to corner balance the car before i go back to Lime Rock Park and these would help tremendously.

Do Fox guys convert to the SN95 front bar setup and mounts, then just buy the MM adjustable bar?

If you decide to fab your own the Matthis book has drawings and a parts list.

You might get some preload in the front bar with the stock set up, but honestly, I don't believe it's worth the hassle in trying to set it up properly for the minimal gains you will receive...my $0.02.

Thats strange i just installed their brake cooling ducts back in June. And spoke with Mike Winston on the phone, he said they were relocating warehouses, never mentioned being out of business.

I want to corner balance the car, and the guy who is going to help me do it said you want adjustable endlinks to zero out the front bar so each side has the same tension.

Interesting - the problems noted in the other thread. I have the Power Grid pieces and have had zero issues with them. I am going to cycle the suspension and watch how they react during travel.

Are they adjustable and im guessing these are not for mustangs, so which ones did you order and which ones should i order for a 89 mustang?

84-87 front, 88 front, 88 rear ? I need to measure my endlinks now and figure out if i need short or long.

Do you realize those UPR links are for their "drag race" rear sway bar?

Those links are probably too long to use on a factory Fox style front bar... I guess you could cut the center portion of the link shorter...

Just say no to Unauthorized Product Reproductions. Those Zero Lash pieces look interesting. Curious to hears Jack's comments on those.

I did not notice that the rods were not threaded. Perhaps the rods are threaded and can be removed and replaced with all thread?

x2

also you can get pretty creative using mcmaster carr as they have a nice search engine with pics but i agree in that this is a huge waste of time UNLESS you have a real reason for it. for me it was the fact that i had to move my swaybar forward and down to clear the turbo setup.

I have used parts from the 4 wheelers catalog , to build what i needed when i made adjustable and quick disconnet sway bar ends .
As long as both ends are threaded , all thread works fine for the center link .

Have you seen my car? Adjustable endlinks are worth it, because i want to corner balance the car, i want this car F***kin perfect! Im even willing to add some ballast weight here and there to get her dialed in right,

Be sure and coat the threads with anti seize to prevent electrolysis. I had their bump steer kit and the steel in aluminum galled and seized up. Coating with anti seize prevented it from reoccurring.

You guys talking about using all thread need to know that the standard stuff you buy is grade 2 and pretty soft stuff to be attaching a swaybar with.
