Haven't been here is a while. Been sifting through some of the older threads in here lately and just didn't find what I was looking for. I remember bits and pcs from old discussions a few years ago but cant find the freaking the original threads and then there is the dreaded "dead links". So sorry for re-starting an end link discussion, but its 2019 now so why not? Maybe there is some fresh info. out there.
My current situation (not dire by any means) is with front end link options. Car is lowered on Parts Shop Max coils. Original setup was the stock OEM 2013 front end links. Those actually held up pretty good for about a year, then started to crap out (had about 42,000 miles on them). Then decided to try out the WHITELINE adjustable links. Did the whole PRELOAD setup and used ramps to dial it all in. These felt great at first, and no more clunks or pops lol.
Well that lasted about 5-6 months and they are dead as an end link can be, I mean they are basically just flopping around in there, and kinda sounding like popcorn when turning at low speeds
So I happen to have a spare NEW set of those that I could throw in there, and was just about to do so. But then I read what looks like a new EDIT on the PBM website that clearly states "USE ONLY OEM END LINKS TO PREVENT BINDING". So that got me to thinking to take a step back and rethink this whole thing. I WILL be tracking this car and doing some mountain runs now and then, but for fun so wont ever be corner balancing it. I am starting to lean back to OEM style end links as they held up WAY better than the WHITELINES. I mean sure, I can throw these in, but I am pretty sure in about 3 months or so, I will be back here searching the forums again lol.
So as of May 2019.... What current options do we have for "beefier" OEM style front end links (not adjustable). I know there were some MOOG options a while back, but wasn't sure on part numbers or if they are even worth it. Just looking for end link part numbers/options/lengths for a lowered 2013 CG on PBM coils (have the BK1 and BK2 mounting spots) that are built like bricks so I don't have to keep wasting time on the dam sway bar lol.
If anyone has any experience with certain brands, lengths/sizes or whatever else (talking about a 2013 here), please feel free to share thoughts and info on what may have worked well or not so well for you
. More specifically some up to date part numbers or even links to the older threads that have them haha.
