Best Sway Bar End Links
« on: August 18, 2015, 01:20:12 PM »

Hey everyone, I was searching the forum for some info on sway end links, and I found that Energy Suspension part 9.8125 fits our Capris. Has anybody used these? Or does anybody recommend a different part? I am installing these in the front and rear or my '94 n/a 5spd along with lowering springs and tokico struts, so performance is my top priority. Thanks

I have a pair of them on the front of my car. The polyurethane bushing are stiffer then the oem rubber ones and they did slightly reduced body roll in corners. After 10 plus years on my car, the bushings are still in mint condition, but the zinc plated hardware started rusting in just two years.

Did you have to modify them at all?

The Energy Suspension end links on the front of my capri are # 9.8122 and require no mods to be installed. They are almost identical to the originals except theyíre about 5mm longer. The part # you gave is too long and will decrease performance. It may also result in the stabilizer bar end coming into contact with the axle.

I just did a tire rotation this last weekend and found one of the bushings on the rear driverís side crushed. I measured the rear link and looked at Energy Suspensionís part catalog to find  # 9.8120 end link. Itís less then 2mm longer than the original and should be a nice upgrade for the rear.

Based on this thread, I went ahead and ordered a set of the Energy Suspension 9.8122 end links thru Amazon, total cost was less than $30.  I've had almost nothing but trouble with Roo-Sports, and they even put me on a "do not sell to" list on eBay because I left them neutral feedback (they never replied to my emails or phone calls).  F*ck them and the camel they rode into town on, I'll get things like this from anyone but them.

I have sold on eBay under that account for 16 years.......I have a grand total of 5 people on my "blocked bidders" list. I have never, nor will I ever, block a buyer for neutral feedback. I have a total of ONE neutral feedback, from 6 months ago....If that was you, you are NOT blocked.

As for "never replied to my emails or phone calls", that's a flat-out lie...maybe you should check your eBay messages, because all replies were sent through there. I have 100% perfect feedback, with 5 star ratings in all categories...perhaps it's not me that has the problem.....

Just for fun, I've attached a picture of my "blocked bidder" list....Are you on it?

If you have a problem with me, perhaps we can continue this in PM....
