What about my custom made endlinks?

Made from chrome-molybdenum steel. With Kevlar/Teflon lined joint. Oversize joints for strength and durability. (Solid hiem joints, no rubber/poly bushes here.) These are high quality components sourced in Europe, not taiwan/china rubbish. They are race/motorsport proven without issues.

Grade 12.9 fasteners and cone-lock locking nuts. (Better than ny-lock locking nuts.) These fasteners will stand up to any abuse you can throw at them and will not undo like the low quality offerings from other manufactures. And even if you did somehow manage to cross thread or round off a fastener, the fastener can be replaced without junking the entire link.

I first made these custom adjustable swaybar links for my own vehicle. I needed a high quality, robust sway bar link that i could depend on, and not cost too much. There products available on the market at the time were mostly garbage. There were very few high quality items available from some places, but they werent adjustable. The adjustable items available from some popular manufactures were junk, and alot of people were having reliability problems. So i developed my own links. I sourced high quality components and figured out what was needed to make them into a functioning swaybar link. I began making a few sets here and there for people in the Subaru clubs/forums.

I recently made a set of custom sway bar links for a Ozfoz member. I ordered some additional components, enough to make 3 more pairs, as i have had a bit of interest here and there. Almost a psuedo group buy. There is practically no profit in there for me when making individual sets. But if i combine a few sets together then i might get a little profit for my time and effort. These links are comparable pricewise with other swaybar links available for the Subaru platform. And they are actually cheaper than OEM links purchased in Australia..

The OP just snapped a sh!teline. They fail very often. Infact a great number of my customers have replaced thier faulty whiteline links with my links. :lol: So whiteline is actually great for buisness.

The 2 common points of failure are they either snap, or the nylock nut wont stay tight. And then the threaded stud flogs out in the swaybar/control arm.

In my case, Loose nylocks, then weakened stud (with compromised thread) from the extra movement, then snapped stud.

Probably not helped by me not staying on top of "checking and tightening" with the necessary rigor.
