I'm thinking of ordering new rear endlinks from Rock Auto and I've done a search for endlinks here but couldn't find any information relative to the installation of them. Is there any installation tips I should know about before installing them? I'm sort of concerned about the upper part of the link and how easy or difficult it is. I did new bushings in the lower part and I now realize the uppers need replacing, too. :mad:

Yes, you're correct. However, I just replaced the lower "bushings", not the end links themselves. Now, wiser that I am, I realize I should have replaced the complete endlink.

The end links you are talking about, will they be the OEM style jointed ones or the more classic bolt style? If it is the OEM style, there is nothing to mounting the upper part, if it just bolted up to the bar and it has the joint there for flexibility. I don't see what the issue would be in this case. If they are the bolt style, the upper and lower mounting are the same only with a nut on the outside instead of the head of the bolt.

The end links were easy to replace on the rear. Just need a torque wrench. Upper link nut is torqued to 35-47 ft lbs. Bottom nut is 8-10 ft lbs.

No problem at all. When I did mine, I read the bottom nut torque wrong and was trying to torque mine to 40 ft lbs. Needless to say I bent the bottom end of the end links.
