Default Sway bar links

Today i went down to Silver Auto and bought a Sway bar link kit (MOOG) its 8 bucks a side, so thats cheap enough..what kind of diffrence should i expect with new ones? The old ones rattle around there spots. Also is there an easy way for me to test my inner Tie Rods? I know i need the outers for sure. Im going to go with all MOOG parts as well.

tighter links...you`ll feel it in cornerin ...Moog parts for your suspension is a real good way to go...take you car into a muffler/brake shop or something like that tell em` you think you have a rattle in the tie rod area ....they`ll check it out and tell you if they`re bad ....up here its free...don`t know if it is where you live

Turtle is right.....better cornering will result if the Stab Kits are replaced.

Not just cornering. Overall ride quality will firm up and smooth out. It gives the impression of more responsive steering. This is assuming your stock bushings are shot, and they probably are.

hehe probally , mean it only has 155,488 miles on the clock...
I wonder if this will help the dieing power steering pump..or maybe its just a lot of crappy front end parts all together! I think im gunna end up doing the inner tie rods anyways, i mean the outers are done to this world..

Cool, I'll have to check these once the weather gets better.

Do you guys replace sway bar bushings too? Any other bushings to check? Control arms?

Do the links/bushings/washers. Just by the MOOG or Energy Suspension kit. This is the most likely to cause problems, but check 'em all when you're in there.
