Lowered on FRPP -- Need suggestions on endlinks

I looked around and couldn't find any thread specific to my question...

I'm lowered on the FRPP 06-07 kit and I'm wondering what (if any) would be a good upgrade for end links. I know there are some that are adjustable, but I also know it may not be necessary to get adjustable hardware for such a modest drop.

Any of you suspension gurus have a suggestion? I'd like to keep a really good balance in my geometry and I feel like right now I don't have it.

you dont need adjustable for a 1.5inch drop but your sways will work better the more parallel the bar is to the road so get Massive adj endlinks plus they look tits

if you dont then go with Moog with the zerk fittings so you can grease them but stockers will work

What is the maintenance/life span on the massive end links? They look great and I can get them in blue to match my springs!

IMO go with Massive's. Rod ends are basically maintenance free and they are cheap to replace.

Are the current end links causing any problems?

No "problems" from the stock end links.

If it ain't broke, upgrade it!

haha...i like this.

I also am lowered on the FRPP suspension and have a slight clunk from the front swaybar. I had brand new stock endlinks installed after the suspension was finished and before the alignment. I would like to go with the Massive Adjustable endlinks, if you end up getting those let me know what you think.

I think I've more or less decided on the Massive end links. It's just a matter of when at this point.
