Well I don't know how many miles are on your car but I read OEM front sway bar links tend to go bad after 40,000-45,000 miles. Mine broke around 48,000. It is just a thought.

Well right now I'm about at 110,000. My buddy told me my end links are fairly new but I got to playing around with them and they seem to have some play in the upper bushing, so they can't be that new or at all. I'll look into it further. I'm just tired of all these noises they drive me nuts lol

Mine was totally snapped, it wiggled around like a loose tooth. Had to heat it up to get it off. Are they OEM? Grease fittings on them? I HATE a noisy car! Its real easy to do it yourself, I'm not technically inclined at all.

Good Luck!

Ah yes time is hard to come by. Make time ha. Or find more hours in a day, if you do let me know. OEM doesn't have grease fittings.

Maybe put some grease in them and see if that helps at all?
