End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

i'll let the photos do the talking. draw your own conclusions and please note that i am a customer of both vendors (end-links) and not affiliated with either.

hopefully this will help some of you decide which way to go.

peace

Boz.

+1 For BlackOps, great pics as well! You should include the stock endlinks as well... they are puny!!!

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

Does anyone know what kind of spherical rod ends that BlackOps uses in their endlinks? Are they rebuildable? I don't see a c-clip holding the assembly into the housing, so I would imagine they aren't, although that isn't necessarily a deal killer, just curious...

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

Chad mentioned that the end-links are 100% rebuild able and they would take care of it at no charge. I'll see if Chad can get in here and answer.

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

We are using a Polyurethane socket by Energy Suspension and our own steel ball-stud developed in conjunction with Energy Suspension.

We chose these over spherical bearings/rod ends because even the highest quality spherical bearings will begin to rattle and make noise over time. These provide very similar flexibility without the rattle.

They are 100% rebuildable by simply replacing the urethane socket - it is the only wear item on the parts. Removing/installing the socket is relatively straight forward with an arbor press or large vise, or they can be sent to us. We expect them not to need any sort of rebuild honestly.

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

Black ops!!! Bwoody is junk in my eyes. They don't stand behind their product and they don't care about their customers. Chad on the other hand cares about us and wants to make sure we are happy. I ordered something from bwoody for my old jeep and what a freakin nightmare !

I just got these late last week. They look pretty bad ass! Just waiting on control arms to come then throwing them on together. Nice work Black Ops!

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

I have to send my BWP links back anyway because they are the wrong design, I am tempted to just tell him to keep them and refund my money but I know that I won't get a refund, sad on the junk front

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

Has anyone had both installed and can they comment on differences in feel?

I sold my Bwoody last week before installing them and just received my Black Ops End links. Quality comparison, as you can see from the pics, these are worlds apart. I'm just curious how each of them perform.

I need to take my Jeep to the dealer for the Carbon Fiber Trim Recall and I will have them install the End Links then.

Re: End-Link Photo Comparison - BWP vs BlackOps

I'm trying to sell mine .. No takers LOL 😁

Cancelled my order for BWoody control arms in dacoit of the BlackOps (which just arrived) BWoody were nice enough to issue me a refund less a "restocking fee" which kinda sucked

Peace
