MOOG Link

I know you get enough dumb questions here but I have no shame. Can someone please tell me what the difference between these two parts are? They are literally named the same thing on the MOOG website, have no description of difference except that one is labeled "Heavy Duty" but they both look drastically different and I am officially confused as all hell.

MOOG-K80066 - Front Sway Bar End Link made by MOOG

MOOG-K90130 - Front Sway Bar End Link made by MOOG


Thanks in advance.

First is the style used by the Focus for a front bar link, the second is used by the Focus for the rear bar (could be used in front on other car designs).

I see now that had I looked just a little deeper into MOOGS website I think I could have figured out on my own that one is for the read since all the similar looking ones say REAR including the one that says it works for the SVT model. But now I saw the premium one MOOG-K700525_Rear - Rear Sway Bar End Link made by MOOG and am searching to see if these ones will work for the SVT. Might as well get premium for an extra $4 if it will work.

I'd go for the poly bushing/end links over the the oem style for the rear.

that premium one is a type of poly bushed link and it's gotten good reviews by a few who tried it & posted on it here.
