non srt bwoody endlinks for 09 4.7?

A couple months ago I had bilstein 5100's struts and shocks put on along with Front/Rear srt swaybars. When I ordered the swaybars from justforjeeps I didn't order the srt endlinks because I didn't need them and I was trying to save cash. I am looking at the non srt endlinks from bwoody. Is it worth the upgrade to these or will the stock one hold up? If I do get them should I get the greasaable bushing. My 09 only has 28k on it and I plan on keeping it awhile. Thanks for any Input.

They are noticeable when you are going around a ramp and you hit the bump that kind of kicks out the rear......thats what it really helps with.

Thanks I think I will add them just to complete the setup.

I run the BWoodys and like them a lot. They are pricy, but the quality is great. You will see just how beefy they are when you get them.

Mosier did you get the greasable bushings with it? Think they are worth it?

Re: non srt bwoody endlinks for 09 4.7?

Sure did. So far, I think they are absolutely worth the price. The real test (since I cannot do accelerated testing on them in a lab environment) will be (to me) if they go 3-4 years without needing a bushing replaced or the welds cracking and not have corrosion so bad that you could not service the bushing because everything is "frozen" together. If every every 4 years (preferable) all I gotta do is freshen the bushings and lightly sand and re-paint/clear coat the body of the end link, I will be very happy indeed.

OK thanks. I do think it would complete the setup. With the stock ones being 4 plus years old I think they are due. These winters are tough on the bottom of our jeeps.

Re: non srt bwoody endlinks for 09 4.7?

I here'ya on the winters. Seems here in Michigan stuff just gets destroyed if neglected. Every summer I go over and touch up or sand and repaint things on the undercarriage and address anything even with the slightest hint of corrosion, so long as I can afford too. I would like to hear your thoughts once you get the BWoody end links and how it complemented (or not) your Bilstein 5100 setup. They really made a difference on my hybrid lift.

Will do. As soon as the weather breaks I'll put them on. I thinking they will make difference with the stock ones being the weakest point and the bwoody being much more beefy. I'll let you know thanks

Re: non srt bwoody endlinks for 09 4.7?

personally i had them and they were a bit loud after awhile. i did not get the grease fittings on mine. now that i went back to stock links, i will say that you can run stock end links in the front and i would probably go with a stock length bwoody link in the rear. i have the SRT front swaybar and the addco rear swaybar with my BB. the

they are a nice upgrade but pretty pricey for just a set of links. thats why im looking to throw them in the rear and leave the front end links stock

Yes they are pricey. I wonder if you can buy just the rear end links? I think they just come as a set of four. If I bought all four I think I would have buy the grease fittings just for piece of mind. Are there any other end links out that are an upgrade from stock(Moog, myotech etc. Or are they just a stock replacement.

theyre just stock replacements.

i want to say they would sell you just the rears. theyre local so i may give them a call and get a price. im planning on going the route you did and run 5100s upfront and stock rear with a small spacer. OEM+
