    Default Anti-sway bar end links

    Has anyone changed over from the original plastic anti-sway bar end links to the metal replacement ones? See attachment.

    If so have you detected a difference in the ride/cornering of the car?

    I just ordered four links from West Coast Corvettes and when I install them I will watch, to be sure, all are functioning properly. Since my car has three original plastic links and one metal I will have a spare for back-up.

    Thanks.

    Unless you're a hard core autocrosser or track racer, the stock end links will last longer than you or the car.
