Sway Bar End Links Replacement

My sway bar end link boots are cracked bad. You cant just replace the boots so I called a dealer and got the following quote for end link replacement

Front - $202 x 2
Rear - $175 x 2
Labor - 317 (3 hours)
Alignment - $200

$1271


I will probably use Snake Oyls end links because they are about 1/2 that cost
but is an alignment really necessary? Is 3 hours a fair estimate in labor?
I feel like when you say Viper its like dropping chum in the water for some dealer rip off pricing.

Can't imagine why you would need an alignment.

And, 3 hours labor at casa Dave's viper shop is $18.95 an hour. Less if you can find Miller on sale.

Amazon has the Moog part listed on ebay @ $37, for $25 shipping included.

Summit Racing lists lots of replacement boots of different dimensions, but you would have to have a link in your hand to measure to see if one of the boots would fit.

I got mine front and rear from Rock auto. $19.35 each for rear and $22.79 each fronts. They were Moog I believe. Plus they have the 5% off coupon if you google it.

Did mine in my driveway. Took maybe 3 hours start to finish. While doing them I also installed Roe Urethane sway bar mounts for $22.23 per set.

If you are in Houston ill do it for a fat check haha. Mine with the new mounts was under $200 in parts. You most deff won't need an alignment. You don't even touch anything that would jack with the alignment. F'in dealer bending you over.

I just finished installing these a week ago. I replaced both front/rear links with these from Paul Scharf. The rears are indentical to stock and come with a better nut than the stock one. The front links do have a grease fitting on them and are the same length as the OEM, but the threads are a little long. They don't hit anything, just look a little wierd. I am going to chop them down a little because I really don't like how they look installed.

I'll take a pic when I get home tonight, so you can see what they look like.


Pretty good deal for 75 bucks for the pair either front or back.
