NC Endlinks

Postby porterhousestk » Tue Jul 26, 2016 12:29 pm

Hello! I know this topic may have been covered before but hopefully the Subject name will make it easier for others to find information they are looking for... I have a 2008 NC1 lowered as much as possible on BC Coil overs, and I have installed the Progress Technologies front and rear swaybars.... my oem endlinks are ruined and its time to order new endlinks... I am debating between the "PowerGrid Miata Endlinks - FRONT SHORT" + "PowerGrid Miata Endlinks - Rear" OR TWO of the "Whiteline MX5 SHORT swaybar Endlinks" My concern is that the PowerGrid REAR endlinks do not specify whether not they are compatible with a very low car, and the Whiteline SHORT end links do not specify whether they are for front or rear... any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Great picture. Between those two choices...I prefer the Whiteline.

Okay, I will get 2 of the Whiteline MX5 SHORT Sway Bar Endlinks. but my original question was if these work for both the front AND back.. The catalog does not specify. Thanks!

What I see looking at the description for the short version is: "This is a choice only for customers very lowered, typically for customers lowered 2 inches or more."

I'm sorry.. I'm just having a hard time explaining my confusion. I guess what I'm trying to ask is: what is the difference between a front and rear sway bar endlink? Are they the same?

Same product...just different stud lengths needed as car gets lower.

The STOCK end links are different front to rear, primarily in that the mounting studs come off the links at different angles. That difference doesn't matter with aftermarket adjustable links, since the ends of the links swivel to any angle. Thus you only need to worry about the length of the link, which of course is adjustable. As long as you're not doing ridiculous amounts of rake, the same links would work at either end.

Thank you for clearing this up for me!
