Part Details

  • Quantity:   Pair
  • Front or Rear Location:   Front

Your sway bar helps your vehicle's suspension performance. The main purpose is to reduce body roll when going through a turn at speed. Although the sway bar itself is not a wearable item the end links are. Over time the ball & socket joints can wear causing loose connections, or even come apart and fall off.

Specifications:

  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Fits both the LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) FRONT
  • Direct replacements
  • Built to strict quality control standards

If you can hear your sway bar rattling on a bumpy road it may be time to replace the end links. These links make great replacements and offer good cost savings over the dealer parts.

Item Condition: New

Exact replacement
I was lubing the front end as part of my oil change maintenance and found the sway bar link on one side was broken. The sway bar links had been replaced during a front end rebuild several years ago, they had grease fittings and had to be lubed. These replacements from 1Aauto have no fittings to fool with (yeah!). The fit and function is perfect. The price is reasonable and shipping is fast. Thank you 1Aauto.

Hello I own a 99 lincoln town car and I have alot of play in my steering wheel.feels like Im driving a boat. Is this possibly the sway bar? Thanks
Mark D November 22, 2015
Hello, Though we cannot diagnose, this may cause some excessive leaning but may also have a clunking noise when the body leans left or right (unless they are just broken). Other contributors of this boat ride may be worn shocks or weak springs. Please note there are rear anti sway bars end links on the rear also that may contribute to this driving issue. Check air pressures in the tires also!!
Brian F November 23, 2015
Very doubtful the sway bar is your problem. More likely other components in the front end causing alot of slop in the steering. The sway bar will make the car "roll" more on hard turns, but not so much on a straight away.
Rick B November 23, 2015
Doubtful. The swaybar and links keep your car level while cornering. Excessive play is more likely due to bad ball joints, bad tie rod, bad pitman and or idler arm, or a worn steering gear box. Any one of those items will cause sloppy steering.

I have a 2001 Town Car. It always squeaks when I hit bumps and turn the wheel. Could this be an issue with the Sway Bar and Bushings?
D0000 G April 28, 2018
You might wanna check your ball joints. My 2000 marquis was doing the same until the ball joint gave out and wheel fell.
G A April 28, 2018
Most likely cause of squeeking on bumps and turns would be ball joints
T H April 29, 2018
possible could also be any of the bushings in front end or ball joints as well as tie rods or but a arm bushings would a place to look close at even shock absorber bushings but turning Is most likely to be tie rod ends or ball joints
Timothy W April 29, 2018
Not quite enough information to pinpoint the problem, but those symptoms could absolutely be caused by bad ends on the sway bar.
Larry C April 29, 2018
If you look on the lower a-arm there is a spot where the stop hits the arm. Take a die grinder and smooth up the little spot where the stop hits. I have done a few of these and there will be a little ridge where it is worn . The squeak will be gone.

It could be. also check ball joints
