Best Front Anti Roll Bar Link / Sway Bar Links vs Stock OEM Motorcraft

First I can say I am not thrilled on putting ACDelco parts on over Motorcraft, but in this case it was a no brainer.

The ACDelco links are made from a much stronger steel.
The rubber boots are made from a much higher grade rubber if not what looks to possibly be silicone?
They ACDelco links have grease zerks so they can be serviced and come pre filled from the factory.
They (They=ACDelco) heve the allen wrench hole at the end of the threaded shaft to hold while tightening or loosening the nut. And if the fails for any reason there is a nut on the bottom of the shaft you can use a wrench to hold also.
They have serial numbers! So in a pinch you can use those to ID your car or parts.
And for me I was able to buy them for less than the Motorcraft ones.

In my opinion these are the best Front Anti Roll Bar Link / Sway Bar Links you can buy for your Focus hands down. Replacement parts wise, I'm sure there are racing ones that may be superior.

The only possible con would be the Motorcraft ones are lighter by a few ounces.

I have the MOOG links with zerk fittings. They're great.

Basically, anything other than Motorcraft is great.
