I just bought new front sway bar links. I noticed that the ones currently on my car are strait top to bottom. Well, the new ones are curved in the middle. I was curious if I was handed the wrong ones, or if it is a different design that this company (Name I believe is OE suspension) has. Any ideas?? I really think they are wrong but don't want to take things apart to find out.

I think I've seen a set of MOOG endlinks that had a light curce to them. As long as the ball joint to ball joint angle and distance between is the same, it should be fine.

Looks like it's easier for them to attach the ends to the bar at a 90 degree angle. So they bend the bar to get the final angles correct, whereas the originals are just attached to a straight bar at the correct angle.

I have one side with curved ones and one side with straight. The curved ones are easier to get in, and fit better (flush) to the spindle. The other straight one I got seems to not sit flush to the spindle it stays out a small amount seems to be ok though.

I have four different looking 93+ endlinks, not including the original ones off my 97.

1 is straight and welded into the sides of the ball and sockets
1 is straight and welded onto the back of the ball and sockets
1 is curved and welded into the sides of the ball and sockets
1 is curved and welded onto the back of the ball and sockets

And to make it even worse, they all have a different finish. Gold, gloss black, satin black, and irredescent.

Lol. Yea I don't really like how the straight one I got doesn't fit flush to the spindle because the tapered part is big at the beginning of the screw and it won't fit all the way in.
