    Cool ATS Rear Sway Bar End Links - INSTALLED - WOW

    Hello Folks,

    As I previously posted, I had my rear sway bar end links installed this past Friday by BWoody Performance. Please note the below installation pictures. All I can say is WOW!! These links firmed up the rear sway bar WITHOUT affecting ride quality. Easy install, less than 1 hour and the comparison pics of the stock vs BWoody links, speak for them selves. This is an easy mod, does not affect warranty and really helps firm up the rear end. I believe you can even get these on eBay with a FREE choice in color (these links are powdercoated). I would HIGHLY recommend getting these on - you will be pleased. No clearance issues and these come with all required hardware. Any questions, just give them a call and ask for Mike.

    Did you put in new bolts or reuse the old ones?

    The kit comes with all new Grade 8 bolts and washers. We reused the lower ones.

    The rear end can use a little work. Wiggles around a little. I'll have to try this. My first real mod. I SO don't wanna go down the modding road again......

    I agree. I haven't had the car for a month yet, and parts like these make the mod bug come knocking. I wanted to wait at least a few months..

    I'm in agreement, but I can't stop.

    Remember, order on ebay and get these in almost any powder coated color for free.

    Just installed these and one thing Bwoody did not mention was that the sway bar bolt hole has to be drilled a little larger, in order for the bolt to fit. Want to make everyone aware. I have the 2.5L. Not sure if FDNY-L107 has the magnetic ride control, but for the standard sport suspension its not exactly direct bolt on.

    Didn't have to drill mine with the performance suspension. Much tighter feel in the corners and a more planted car.

    Humm....we took the measurements and specs off my 2.0T sport suspension wo/MRC with no drilling required. Interesting that you had to drill - there must a different sway bar used with MRC. Thanks.

    That is exactly what you can expect! These help take the slop out of the rear end.

    I wanted to mod the first day. Came out of a CTS V to a 2.0 turbo.

    I'm always into a little modding as long as I have good enough instructions to give me the courage to do it. Could I get a brief description of how to do the install?

    Sure thing. Just give Mike a call at BWoody Performance. He can step you through this easy install.
