Thx!
1) Do I need these in conjunction with H&R Sport springs?

No, unless your existing links are bad or the geometry or the anti roll bar need to be corrected.

2) What's the estimated install time for these?

10-15 minutes per side at the most.

The FK needs shorter than stock endlinks. A few forum members already contacted me and custom length for the FK coilovers will be ready to ship the middle of next week.
are the endlinks for FK available yet? thanks

Yes, they are of a custom length and will take a couple of weeks to make.

However, you may actually need endlinks of stock length to bring the geometry back.

Harold Do you offer these for both the front and rear? Your website only shows them availble for the front?..do you recommend adjustable end links for the rear as well or should we use OEM. I am doing a modest drop of 20mm front (.8 in) and 13 rear (.5 inch)

We offer them for just the front only.

The rear oem endlinks are just fine.

^^ bump for a good question ^^
Might be obvious to some, but I'm wondering the same thing. I'm guessing these are not required if your going with an aftermarket shock and spring?

You don't need them but they are recommended whenever the ride height is being chaged to get back the anti roll bar geometry back as close to ideal as possible.

If your oem anti roll bar endlinks are worn out, you should consider replacing them with these if your car has been lowered to get the anti roll bar bacak to a more ideal geometry.

Harold would I need to use the adjustable endlinks for the AST setup?

I believe the ASTs have an adjustable endlink mounting tab on the front dampers replacing the need for adjustable endlinks?

The later style AST's come with the adjustable endlink mounting tabs, a great feature, therefore adjustable endlinks aren't needed. Another reason to get the AST's!

AST made some changes to their front struts. Have a look at your front anti roll bar mounts, are they adjustable or fixed to the strut housing?

I'd be surprised if they were adjustable, but I'll look! So if fixed, then I would need these adjustable links or the other way around?

They use the same HD joints often found on BMW and Porches. The overall design is stronger in bending load over the OEM.
