End Link length

So I've seen a thread before, not one here on a different forum that I can't find now. Basically it said that after you lower the car you might need shorter sway bar links to regain the correct geometry. The idea being that with stock length and lowered the sway bar will be pushed up a bit instead of perpendicular. I never gave it much thought until I was doing my brakes and noticed that my 1yr old end link bushings are now cracked/split and they make an annoying sound over bumps. Any thoughts?

Are you bottomed out on your threads?? I use moog end links that are lifetime replacements... You can go to parts store and get shorter links....take yours there or measure them...

Yeah they're bottomed out. I got energy suspension I think. They didn't have shorter ones available.

You could fabricate new ones but I would try at parts store first...

Bump steer doesn't do anything for sway bar end links??? I never used but doesn't that just get your tie rod geometry back inline...what about the ball joint kits does that lift the lxs back up???
