    Installing Kart Boy Endlinks

    Hey all, apparently my stock front endlinks on my 13 rex snapped and the dealer wont cover it under warranty .
    But its just the excuse I need to upgrade my suspension. Ive decided on getting the Kart Boy front endlinks and was wondering if they should be installed with the suspension under load or unloaded. Thanks.

    Loaded, always. Get a set of ramps. Depending on your ride height, you might get away with the car on the ground. I can on my bugeye just by turning the wheel to each side, but your car will be lower.

    Is the suspension completely stock? Why would they deny a warranty claim on endlinks? That's odd. If you are replacing them, you may as well do front and rear. Endlinks are pretty cheap.

    Theres no way I can fit under the car even at stock ride height, luckily my friend has ramps. They supposedly claimed that the sway bar was taken off and put back on even though I have stock suspension.

    It depends on how valuable your warranty is. Kartboy endlinks would be more robust than the factory links, but if the dealer is already this difficult to work with, especially such a cheap and simple warranty claim (only a couple hundred $$$ in factory links and less than an hour of labor), this sort of thing would probably give them more BS excuses to deny other claims. I'd talk with them as suggested, but I would go in armed with all available service records and any other record you can use as ammo against them.

    I knew they were going to deny warranty, all because the bracing was painted.

    Yes..... do them with the suspension loaded.... on ramps.

    ...... and get some extra washers/spacers. Kartboys do not come with enough, dpending on which swaybar you use.

    Nevertheless, you want to make sure those links are EXACTLY straight up and down (perpendicular to the ground).... absolutely no angle should be present... otherwise you'll strain them and possibly break them. Good luck.

    You can find plated washers at Home Depot. This thread should help:
