And please, before you start to use the Aluminum nuts... You should chase the thread with a tap if there is any damage on it.

Normally it would not matter, but the steel will alter the aluminum.

Okay so i know there has been a million threads about endlinks but im yet to find if anyone has experimented with another make and models endlinks (mazda 6 or speed3, etc.)

I looked under my car the other day and am missing a rear :s kinda odd but am looking for something stiffer without spending a bunch on aftermarket...Im thinking a heavier car or light suv would have something that may solve the clunk...since im on rougher country roads i need a fix cuz my car sounds like its gonna fall apart when i hit a series of bumps...

input=good haha

yeh i know people have caught onto the ford escape endlinks for the front, but haven't heard anything about the rears other than the aftermarket adjustable crap. i'd love to find a tougher design thats similar to stock. i don't want adjustability, thats just more likely to fail.

know anyone that works at an autoparts store?? drop off a stock endlink (or get them to find a replacement in stock) and get them to find a beefier one thats the same length by opening boxes when they are bored to see what they can find.

I could pull my stocker off and try to find a similar size but beefier...since im running an mp3 tho should i be looking for the 6.5" speed endlinks or 10.5" p5/sedan endlinks?

If its a 10.5" p5/sedan link ive been searching a little and found that a 2012 Ford f250 has a 10.5" beefy link...only problem is you would have to run bolts thru but i wanna get my hands on one to compare and check pricing

Until then im gonna pull mine off since the car is sitting and try the opening box technic at napa or carquest

10.5" is only for the front...
Non-MSP/MP3 swaybar links are 6.5", whereas the speed/mp3 ones are 7.5"
