awsome pick, now let me get a few things straight the sway bar is connected by the endlinks to the control arm correct? Also from what i read about the endlinks they come in grease or non grease something like that. What should i go for and is there a certain size i should get.

These Poly endlinks should not be torqued past the actuall washers... Should look simmilar to this..

Just a note for everyone, be sure not to overtorque the bushings
