Default End links: 9.8120, 9.8120R and 9.8120RC--What'* the diff?

I check my local Auto Zone for the endlinks for my 99, and they have the 9.8120R. I asked for the 9.8120RC per Willren, but the counter guy said they didn't have it and did not know the difference between them. I've also seen on this Forum 9.8120 mentioned as the PN. Does anyone know, are they all the same? What would the RC and R stand for? Thanks.

on the energy susp, the suffix is color designation. the R i know is red. but rc im not sure of. usually it ends with g=black, b=blue, y=yellow, and r=red.

i wanna say the r and rc are the same

Print the pics from the link I gave you in the other topic. Take them to AZ. Ask them to look up the LENGTHS and compare the number of bushings and washers. If they're all the same in that regard, they're the same.

Get the R or the G. they are the same, just different colors. I got the R and they work great.

Will: The pics in your post look just like the ones in the store. The PN are the same, just the letter(*) at the end different. I'll give 'em a try.

It doesn't matter. Count the bushings and washers, and measure the length. That'* all that matters.

All the 9.8120 end links are the exact same in length, number of bushings, washers etc. The only difference in the letter suffixes are in compound or color. This quote from http://www.energysuspension.com/pages/endl.html says it:

Quote:
Color Code for end links and sets, add: G- black, R- red. Example- # 9.8106R = red
