Sway Bar End Link

Who here with lowered or adjustable suspension replaced their Sway Bar End Link at the same time?

I'm installing Coilovers and understand this may load the sway bars and cause problematic handling.

I had to. I remember having a situation where I'd hear a knocking sound whenever I would be making a right turn into an elevated/sloping entrance like say a shopping mall.

Bought a set of "Power Grid" adjustable sway links up front and totally eliminated the "binding" issue that I was encountering.

I had severe problems with my sway bar end links. If you can, get everything set up without the end links. I ended up needing 14" end links with the b-14 and this wouldn't knock into any of my frame.

Update - so I installed the coilovers and control arms. The End Link I ordered (over fuq'n night might I add) are too short.

Funny thing - the OEM End Link is the correct length?!?!

Had the car aligned the afternoon and everything is perfect.

Car handles AMAZING. about a 1/2 inch drop in the back - 1 inch in the front.

Wow. With mine I was having the passenger side end link bolt contact the plastic around the flame and take a small portion of the aluminum frame out. That's why I went longer.

ASBSECU E93: Which coilover did you go with and what is your measured height from middle of wheel to arch of fender? You should drive it for a while to settle the suspension (recommended >500miles and one track day), then get it corner weighted and then an allignment.
