Where can I find the part number for this?
Are the end links on Sport package different from the regular ones? (I assume yes, but wanted to be sure.)

...I need to get mine replaced and will probably do it at an indie shop, I need to tell them to make sure they order the correct part for the sports model.

Thanks I.A.

According to the parts listing on RockAuto it does not appear the sway bar endlinks differ (front or rear) between sport or standard suspension.

Mine are same, noticed a knocking noise the other day in the rear of my '95. Back up on ramp, look see, no bushing on left side.

Remove both, bushing was age hardened and broken on right side too. I pressed in new bushings cut from some black heater hose .... used vice, worked great.

Maybe last a year, maybe 3 .... and then I can do it again?

Later ....

LOL! Great idea! I just bought new ones, but I didn't think to just push in new bushings! Great idea, again!
