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 & frame bushings are.

  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Fits both LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) FRONT
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 48820-02030, 88970146, 88971297, 4882002030
  • 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.
