Yep, those are the ones. They even sell rebuild kits to replace the ends. Just can't believe that's the price for four links lol. That's like 50 less than what I can get four moog control arms for on rockauto.

That's too much, you can get them much cheaper then that.


Edit: They went up in price, lowest I could find was $222 shipped. I paid something like $139 shipped. Even then $222 isn't bad considering.

What is also awesome is you do away from the ~harsh ~slam when you crest over a large bump or mini hill when the car settles back down to your ride height. The reason is these do not lock down to the upper strut like oem. When you hit a bump, the energy is transferred through the suspension and oem control arms, and slams that energy though the car as the control arms are ~hard mounted to the unibody (persay).

Not these, they float. When you hit a bump that energy is transfered and/or divereted to an upwards motion. We have slight issues here where when asphalt road meets concrete road there becomes a ~1"+ road buckle and you'd slightly cringe hitting it doing 45+. Not anymore.

In addition, you get ~2+" of clearance towards the top of the strut tower as have a smaller profile and much less likely to slam the outter ball joint into the inner strut tower which even oem cars do.

They are cheap, because they use cheap rod ends. This is a case of "you get what you pay for". Rod ends in M12 size go from $20 to $100 from one company.

Do you need coils to use these? Meaning are the oem springs too big (diameter wise) for theee to work?

Shouldn't be any reason you couldn't use these with stock springs. Just most people that are using theses are lowered and have too much negative camber.
