beautiful build, and what a quality standard you put there.

im sorry for asking this stupid question, what is the functionality of this part and what does it do with the end links + the control arms?

i feel a little bit lost.

thanks,




and for everyone who are asking for proof of quality of bwoody, please give me your address to send you my broken bwoody true ram air which was totally their fault.

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

On this topic of end-links - what are people doing regarding these pieces are they just buying the end-links and not the control arms, or both. I know they serve different purposes, but if I'm going to get the beast on a lift again, I'm thinking of doing both. I'm running Eibach springs and stock 3 seasons on stock rims - another few months the blizzacks will be on

However, a few concerns

1) Living in Michigan the roads are crap - will the ride be too stiff as a daily driver
2) Is one part more 'bang for the buck' - I'm not adverse to buying both as I like the products from Blackops - and would like a little tighter steering - but don't want to just throw money at it to have a track car, when it has only been the track once.
3) install - anyone have an estimate of how many labor hours at a good shop this would take.

Lastly, as I've told Blackops as soon as the front tower brace is avail, I'll take one of those, so I'm all about the bundle...

Thanks, in advance!

Labor on end links less than 45 minutes.
the end links did not make my ride any harsher. It more affects the steering tightness and lessens body roll.

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

the BlackOps control arms are for extreme drop springs to bring the alignment in and bring the sway bar back to the stock location. Ive had the sway links for almost a year with 0 problems. they still look new if you look under my truck. The bwoodys on my 2013 squeaked after a week and take constant greasing. I left them on the 13 when I traded for the 14...if that gives you any idea how much I cared about them.

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

For those who don't know, they have two levels. One designed for stock height and Eibach/RM mids, and an even shorter set designed for the RM extremes.

Even the "standard" Black Ops End Links are noticeably shorter than stock.
