Default Broken endlink bolt

Hey folks...I'm 99% sure that I busted a endlink bolt (I hit a curb really hard ), but due to ignorance, I'm really not completely sure that the bolt I busted is called "The Endlink Bolt." So before I go to the parts store and make a fool of myself, will someone look at the pics below and confirm? Thanks all!!

Yup it broke. they get rusty like that and fall apart when you turn hard or hit something.

Its easy to fix. Just goto you local Parts store and ask for a Front Sway Bar End Link.

You will get new Bushings and a But and Bolt and some washers.

Cut off old one and then bolt new one on.

yes, those are the better end links, but sense his broke, and it was very warn out, even the normal replacement one will make a HUGE difference

Also do Both sides and check the back ones, if they lok the same as the fronts do, change them also

it will cost like $40-50 to do them all
