Both for $30......well I won't say what I paid for just the 1 from the dealership, but we all know about the dealership prices anyway. I just wanted a replacement ASAP because the body roll was a little much for me. The truck is a little floaty as is.
I just needed to jack up the front left cross member a bit to fit the plastic cover between the sway bar and the lower arm, but other then that it was a simple DIY job. A 5/4" deep socket for the lower nut and a 5/4" box wrench to hold the top bolt head and bada-bing-bada-boom.....done.
I'll check out the MOOG sway bar links though, $30 for both sides is a good price, and poly bushings are way better then the cheap plastic ones.
