    I assume you have to reuse your stock bolts/nuts...?

    well this is a little frustrating this is the original thread that was lost, now the other one is now lost

    we had four or five guys signed up, hopefully they'll pipe in on the new thread

    new hardware will be included, so no you won't have to re-use your stock hardware (but you could )

    Hold_Fast got you added

    Is there really a huge difference between adjustable and solid end links? I need new rear endlinks.

    that's the "original" original , this one is take 2, but it disappeared so I started a take 3, which now has subsequently disappeared

    oh well- if the new server works better than the old I can live w/ a lost thread

    not a huge difference, but some-depends a lot on the bushing used in the solid one- spherical has almost no deflection- solid ones have some (to a lot depending on the bushing)

    the adjustability can come in handy at times as well

    So are these the same as the ones that you made before? I know there was a discussion in the original thread about doing them for the older wagons, and I don't know if there would be a difference between those and the ones you made for the 09's.

    Basically it boils down to this: If they fit the 09 hatch, I am in for a set.

    the 09 (and 08) will require some different hardware/spacers, but the same rod ends, but it should be doable

    there were a couple of names that were on the thread that disappeared that I don't have listed now, hopefully they'll chime back in

    Glad I found this again - please put me down for some wagon end links.

    Thanks

    mycologist- added you (again )

    pzr- the 08/09 links I believe are the same, so I can do sedan ones as well- as mentioned above the hardware/spacers are different, the rod ends are the same

    it would be helpful if you could take a measurement for me though just to be double sure- if you could measure the distance from the center of the upper bolt to the center on the lower bolt (might have to take off the link to get a good measurement)
