stock links, aftermarket suspension components, concern?

Stock links fitted to Eibach sways, with Progress springs and Bilstein HD shocks - all three aftermarket components purchased here. DD car, but serious mountain twisties and switchbacks every day. Any reason to be concerned about the stock links? They look a little fragile.

Hmm, it would be very rare to break the links in street use, but it has happened. Thus, an upgrade wouldn't hurt.

I ran mountain roads and autocross for a third of a year on 7kg/4kg coilover rates with aftermarket sways and the stock endlinks held out just perfect. They seem really flimsy and weak but they held out just well. However I ended up getting aftermarket endlinks after i decided to lower the car, because going over speed bumps occasionally made a loud ping from the endlinks catching on a control arm(or something). After i got them i didn't notice much of a difference however it gave way for more suspension tweaking which was nice :] Their a relatively cheap upgrade compared to the rest of the suspension so I say why not...
