    why? are they bent? why not buy a stock take off set and carry spares. The aftermarket links are overpriced in my mind. Cheap and easy is to sleeve them with 1.25" tubing.

    Bent one, replaced it with stock, no big deal. When I got back from Baja, I had 4 that were bent. Went with CA Technologies, hopefully i'll have better luck.

    Yeah ZRP and others looks bad ass, but like Mega said, if it ain't broke, why fix it ? I've driven that sh#t out of my car, haven't bent one, yet.
    $800 sway bar links, $600 spare tire mounts. The aftermarket is getting rich off of selling overpriced crap you'll probably never "need".

    If you got cash burning a hole in your pocket, then upgrade them. I scored a deal on Cognito Motorsports radius rods from Wadmaster. They are really nice and come with quality f/k heims.

    Still have not installed them yet. My stock ones are still fine after 3500 miles . Maybe I will get motivated to install them soon.

    Whichever ones you do go with make sure they use quality f/k heims. Otherwise you will be pissed when the cheap heim breaks on you.

    Similar to what he saying at :41 i figure lol , anyways not needed but I sure like. Cars that had the aftermarket plates and rods before I did caught my eye in pictures. Im with you though stuff is expensive. It gets addictive shopping for what you want next, getting it in the mail, figuring out the install and overcoming the obstacles that come up, and then trying it out in the field and showing your friends.
