Just a noob here, posting for other noobs that may be thinking about upgrading their endlinks.
I have a completely stock unchanged wheel and suspension setup. I do hate the roll or at least the amount of it.
I am looking to take it slow and step my way through where I feel I lack and make the upgrades necessary.
I started today by installing my newly arrived Kartboy front endlinks. Awesome product IMHO. Perfect fitment. I used ramps to perform the task. I did have to use penetrating oil. I used liquid wrench penetrant...it worked for me.
The results are quite noticeable even though I am using the stock sways. I know my car, and just upgrading the links has affected the car. Im not saying the links are cutting out roll, but it feels as if the links are making my stock crappy sway bar perform like an ok one. Less lean over through the turn. Can still feel the rear roll though. I do have endlinks for the rear, and will attempt tomorrow.
I feel with the rear endlinks my car will feel just right. I don't feel I will need to do the sways. Remains to be felt.
Oh...and the stock endlinks...well...when I crawled out from under my car, I looked at them, and actually laughed a little out loud. They really are pretty frail looking. Seems they are a bearing type with little dust boots on them. Not sure if changing to the KB urethane bushing style will be good for longevity. How many guys has these and been using them for a while? Do the bolts ever come loose? I tightened everything real good and will re-tighten when I do the rears tomorrow.
All in all, easy install. I know I read people that perform this change on level ground, I looked at that, and there is no way I could pull that off. I used my ramps and I have a floor creeper.
