ATTN: SUPERLIFT OWNERS! (CA)

The Superlift sway bar endlinks are junk (as you are all aware) So I came up with a fix:

and a mounted pic:

These have been thoroughly tested on my truck and work flawlessly, so I figured I would sell them on here to anyone interested.

The custom endlinks are made with quality bushings and come with all the required hardware to mount them up. They are coated with spray on bedliner for durability and rustproofing.

Cost is $50 shipped to US and Canada.

My Paypal address is:

Thanks!

Hey Keith.


Just a note and question...don't worry.... '08+'s have virtually flat LCA's. How well are these with a PreKey'd truck or 07 and older? The LCA's have a good angle in them on the older trucks, and the Superlift links have that joint at the bottom to compensate for the angle of the LCA. Have you have any bad bushing wear since your PreKey? Just a thought.

Kudos to you! I've STILL not gotten around to making mine, or even getting my RCD links. Where where you a few months back when I bought my RCD's!?!??? lol.

X2 for Shane's questions. But just FYI, it looks like you're making a great product at a great price.

no issues with bushings or anything since i put in the new keys. honestly, i dont think its really an issue especially since the 07 and older trucks had solid endlinks from the factory. In theory, I hear what youre saying about the LCA angle, but my torsion bars are almost maxed with the older keys and it has been fine.

Yes, these will work with a Superlift w/ coilovers. These eliminate the famous Superlift "clunk."

With the Group Buy on the Coil-Over setups going on, you would think more would do the End-Link Upgrade too.
