One is a stability problem and could cause you problems handling and a crash.

Default Expensive links...

Sometimes the rear ones cost extra. I had one break and it caught the wires from the ABS sensor and ripped them out. So that tacked on the cost of a hub assembly to the low-buck link replacement.

Make sure your inner spacers are the same length or you could ruin your alignment.

That'* the funniest thing I've heard in awhile. Swaybar endlinks are a normal wear item and on virtually every car here are completely worn out by the age of yours.

The only reason we use performance parts to replace the worn OEM'* is because they're cheaper.
