Can't go wrong with the adjustable Powergrid endlinks.

I have the FE5 Moog endlinks installed with no issues. But because they are shorter than the FE3 endlinks, the sway bar ends up sitting pretty close to the tie rod arms. We're talking about less than an inch at normal ride height. But I don't think they ever contact with each other as I don't hear anything out of the ordinary nor do I see any damage on any of the components.

Well if the fe5 struts are a direct fit then ill need the same height endlinks to mount then which means the longer one. My buddy just did the fe5 struts and has stock endlinks and they fit perfectly which means that ill need the longer Moogs endlinks then.

Ive established fe5 struts, moog k80252 endlinks, moog lca bushings. I already have the fe5 rear shocks and the top hats with bearings bout 5k on both then will be using my progress springs. All i know id my entire front end has alot of play and clunks soooo loud.

Well, in case anyone was curious, here's a picture of the FE5 Moog endlinks. They're a bit shorter, so the sway bar ends up being pretty close to the tie rod.

Yeah brant, the bad endlinks make a whole lot of noise. When I changed mine, it all went away. I went w/ the Powergrid endlinks just because I don't want to mess w/ it for a while. You'll love the fe5 set up.
