    Rear swaybar endlinks options?

    I just replaced the endlinks on my protege 5, I have tokico blues all the way around. I forgot to measure the old endlinks before I got rid of them, however when I ordered the replacement endlinks, they were like 3 inches too long, so I sent those back and ordered the ones for the sport suspension, those were 6.3 inches. And even those seem a little long. I was wondering if the 2002, 626 rear endlinks would work on the protege 5? Has anyone ever done this??? Thanks for your help. Chris

    Why don't you just get adjustable end links?

    Bought them for 160 here on the forum, never got around to installing them. I'll let them go for 160, shipping included.

    I'm sure that's a good deal but way more then I want to spend, or can afford.

    When I installed my coilovers and dropped the ride height, my front end links were too long. I measured the ideal length I wanted them to be, went to oreilly's, and bought a set of the closest length I could find. Spend like $7.

    Is it just me or are end links for this model not lets say as thick as some of the ones i've seen for other cars? I also just bought new end links all around and my total was $57 with shipping now I just need to find the torque specs. still not as badass as whiteline where they look sturdy
