Question OEM endlinks with FK coilovers?

hey guys,

My question is would oem endlinks work with FK silverline X coilovers?

I know you have to use the ones supplied by FK but and the best alternative to that is HPA adjustable ones because it is a lot stronger than the FK units but HPA's are currently out of stock...

however, one of my FK endlinks blew out and since i have oem endlinks lying around, can I swap oem endlinks on? I know changing back to oem endlinks will alter the geometry of the swaybars but having swaybars is better than having no swaybar which is exactly the situation i am in right now. Besides every other coilover set don't require swapping endlinks so why FK?

thanks for the input!

indeed the FK endlinks are shorter than OEM but the mounting points aren't on the shock tower, but its on oem mounting points right?
