Bump. About to finish some adjusting I'd like to set the sway bars right while I'm under there.

that just allows you to move where the endlinks are set so you can attempt to keep the sway bar at its stock mounting height while lowering the car.

Adjustable end-links would probably be good for this scenario, no?

Yes, they would you could then get the proper (I'm not sure on proper wording) height of mounting and length of endlink to maintain the original stock sway bar design. Also shortening and lengthening the endlinks(if I understand properly from what I've read) can change how the sway bar works.

Thanks for the help guys. I went ahead and replaced both sway bar links and adjusted the mounts with the suspension at ride height and everthing seems to be good to go. I still need to do some fine adjusting and clean up the car and Ill get a couple pics up.

make sure you have the endlinks tightened properly other wise you will have one hell of a racket coming from there(ask me how I know)
