    the low freq noises in the underbody can be really deceiving: i thought my front suspension had smth clunking but it turned out to be REAR sway bar bushings.

    the sound clearly came from the front end

    So you guys think I need to change out both sides? And it is the front end links that you think I need.

    If someone else can design it, I sure as heck can figure out how to fix it!

    If you read around the threads here 99% of the time it's the link ends. I did one side that was obvious, noise went away but the other side did the same about 6 months later. Buy both, now or later, you'll need both sides anyways (they're an inexpensive item).

    Is it hard to to switch out the end links yourself? I'm not even sure where to start but if the parts aren't that expensive I'd like to try it myself.

    The hardest part is getting the old ones off. I used a hack saw. Certainly more labor intensive than the dremel or rotary cutter others have used.

    Yeah, but you are beefy! Just like my sway bar mounts!

    Anyone have a picture or diagram of the sway bar links? I've got a dremmel so I can use that.
