    End links go from your sway bar to your suspension. This allows one side of the suspension to talk to the other side making the car more stable.


    • Jack up the car - put on jack stands
    • Take off front tires
    • Remove the top and bottom nut from the End Link you have on now. "You may want to jack up the lower control arm just a bit to get tension off it.
    • Install the new one in reverse order. You can check out youtube videos on how to setup the rest.

    BMW Endlink was already on my car. These are shorter and I was hoping would help but did not. It might work for you.

    Perfect timing on this post! I was going to remove my coilovers today to make some clearance on the frame/inner fender area with a BFH and try bending my end link bracket on the coilovers outwards to fix my rubbing issues. The width on these massive end links is a good amount narrower though, maybe I can get away with not doing that. Any idea if it still rubs? I threw some painters tape onto the spots on the frame where it was rubbing before to easily tell if it's still rubbing.

    And just in case anyone else is curious, here is the width measurement of Mevotech end links:
