Those are some nice end links, the boots on mine were torn (LOL) I got a set at Advance Auto for 13$ a piece. Same link except they werent Zinc plated, just regular Steel.
SPC (Specilty Production Crap) yeah I have the same issue with the clanks, as long as the strut doesnt move around, its cool. Resolved my front camber issues on the cheap.
You can get some LCR plates for about 300$, i think.
