Get the polyurethane non-greased endlink kits.

Can you put your year and trim level in your signature?

You have three main options: SE; SSE ; and SSEi
The SE is the base model Bonne, and can be most easily determined by looking at the foglights. If the foglights are low and off to the sides like the car in my sig, it'* an SE.
The SSE and SSEi has foglights that are higher and more closely centered in the front bumper, like the car on the right in willwren'* sig. These are the higher models in the lineup, with the SSEi being the highest on the list, with a Supercharged motor. (There are exceptions, but I'm keeping it simple right now)
This is needed because the different trim levels have variations in internals, and this will simply make any troubleshooting that much easier.

Hope that helped

When i did my brakes recently i notcied neither side of mine are connected either. The bolts are not even there. So is this an easy project or are their aligning issues. Should be just jack up the car, take off tire, put on bolt, do next side right?

I have the fog lights on the outside closer to the tires so i believe i have an SE however it seems i have almost every interior option ever. Now as for the endlinks should i work on it with the car on the ground or ramps or should i take the tires off and work on it on jack stands? Do these Kits come with intructions on how to install them, i imagine its very straight foward but just in case i was wondering?

You have to take the tires off to get to it and work on it.
When i did mine, there were no instructions, just parts.

these are rubber, i wanted a little smoother ride. So i didn't do the poly.

seriously though you think they are too tight, maybe need to loosen them some i didn't have any instruction. And i haven't found a manual (that i want) yet.
