Maybe I missed something here but I was expecting to find sad little plastic end links holding my rear sway bars onto the car today when installing my Eibach sway bar kit. To my surprise, the factory rear sway bar end links are most certainly made out of metal, not plastic. I found this out several hours after I spent $125 on the Kartboy rear end links. I'm sure the Kartboys are superior, but had I know the factory ones were metal I likely would have left them alone for now and waited to spend that money.

Is this a surprising find for anyone other than myself? (2014 WRX Limited Sedan)
