Default What endlinks are these?

I had my car on my friends lift today.


Doing the usuall...checking for any issues sorta thing..car is not rusted ANYWHERE so that is good. roated tires and stuff and was going to change the endlinks but then I saw these and sorta said screw it.





had to get a shot of the lift...liked the choice of stickers he had on there.




I talked to bill and he said they were replacement OEMs or something but I was in the mountains so I could not really hear what was going on....that would be logical since the bolts are long. What are the bushings made out of?

not sure what they are, but by the size of the bushings, I would replace them

They're factory cheap hardened rubber bushings.....they look alright, but if you're looking to replace something bad enough....go for it.

**** that reminds me, both on the front of my truck are snapped off....oh well if I haven't fixed them in 3 - 4 yrs, then I prolly never will.

They are replacement OEM. That'* what you get if you buy new from the dealer now. Poly is still a good step up.

Seeing those bushings, I would be changing them right away. They simply look "out of place"
