Default Where'd that go?!?

I was driving to my Aunt'* house today after work (friday routine). & my car didn't feel as tight in the corners as it normaly does... So after parking my baby I get down on the ground and start checking things out. & this is what I found

Passanger side


Drivers side (NOTICE HALF THE ENDLINK IS GONE!) I'm not one to hit corners hard at all so it must have been in bad shape and gave out.



So I went out and bought Energy suspension endlinks and installed them in no time at all here is the finished product.







The difference is amazing! Best $16.99 I've ever spent on my car!!

Did you replace just the one side, or both?

I recomend a reciprocating saw or grinder (saw is much better) to cut them off in two places and then they just fall out.
I would say cut them off where the red lines are


Other wise you'll spend much more time trying to beat them out.

If you have the time & $16.99 do this I can't belive how much a difference this made
