No it is not.... But where is that coming from? Lol. I didn't see anything about tie rod ends.

Yeah mark end links don't need to be done either I just figured since they would already be halfway disconnected (as the top is connected to your strut and the bottom to your sway bar) it'd be easier.

Ok I'll pm you here in a min too

here you go mark, part numbers and all, 28 each. bout what i paid for mine i think

CLICK ME

and they are a piece of cake to install, but greasing them is another story with a rigid neck grease gun. i would suggest getting one with a rubber hose on it. mine is old school.

Hey but looks good mark! I'm excited lol.

Edit hey mark why don't we just use the old ones.... They'll be fine and I still need to get the bump stop and dust cover from your old ones anyway. Plus it's cheaper
The rears made by Multimatic were prone to leaking so Ford switched to Tokico. You wont be able to reuse the bump stops from the old dampers as the new strut shafts are too large.

The expensive set is made by the "super special" people and they're the 500KR performance series or something.
