Does anyone know how important the end links are? Are they very important if you do the rear sway swap?

The end links help but are not critical to the swap (if that makes any sense) I just wanted to get rid of the allen key and rusted nuts syndrome.


To answer some other questions.
-I think they were 20.00 each or something
-I don't think advanced carries them not sure about napa you can order direct

Can you post the Moog part numbers so people don't get confused.

I found Moog links on rockauto.com and I don't think they're the correct ones.

Moog RR P/N: K90342
Moog RL P/N: K90343

Great post! Repped!

-Those were the right part numbers

DUDEZ... the Moog endlinks can be gotten at any auto store! Or if they can't in your area, just order them online. This has been common info for quite some time.

OEM links suck - do not reuse them. Progress 24mm rules. I don't know how many threads like this we need to cover the same points.

Very important.

Thanks for the part numbers though Finch, those should help some people.

Those end links don't look like the ones posted, they don't look as beefy...

Here are the ones I found:

LOL Finch, the ones you posted are the same thing as the ones Nixed posted - the only reason his look beefier is because of the rubber boot is photographed at a different angle. The linkages are identical.

Haha, just wanted to double check. I was more concerned about the socket, as the ones in the pic I posted look like a plastic socket and not steel like they should be.

Did you try using the OEM Endlinks before swapping in the Moog ones?

How much were the Moogs? Is it worth the upgrade? I was one of the first (actually THE first) to install the Progress bar on the Accord and I kept my OEM endlinks, not knowing the Moog ones existed. I feel the OEM links are sufficient, but if there is a significant improvement in handling, I may consider upgrading.

It's not about the handling man, the plastic sockets don't compress all that much more versus the steel ones. It's the fact that new OEM ones are a shyt ton more expensive than better quality Moog ones. The Moog ones can handle the forces of the stiffer bar without cracking the plastic like the OEM ones can.
