    Title says it all.
    Looking on rockauto for my parts, lots of choices.
    Moog, Proforged, or Mevotech?
    Anyone have any first hand experience or preference for any of these.
    All are around the same price within a few bucks.
    Thanks guys.

    Rod end supply is a good place and BMR for swaybar links.

    Thanks for the input.
    I looked over BMR's links and it turns out the joints are made by Proforged, and the Rod End Supply......well, I'm afraid I'm not smart enough to even decipher their website......
    I'll add that it's my part time daily driver, never will be tracked, won't see any extreme duty.
    I just want something that will out last the 50k I've put on the OEM parts.

    If all you want is a high quality replacement part, get Moog. They have been around forever, and can be trusted.

    Ended up ordering Moog tie rod ends and Proforged sway bar links.
    We'll see how they work out.
    Thanks again.

    Moog has always been excellent quality, I’ve been using there parts for years, every time after replacing front end parts and sending it in for an alignment I tell the techs I used all moog they all have said good they’re the best.

    Agree. I just recently had new Moog ball joints installed together with Energy Suspension urethane bushings on my front control arms.

    Sorry to highjack this thread, but I'm trying to purchase some rear end of links for my sway bar for my 2008 mustang bullitt and there are two sizes 18 mm and 22 mm...do any of you what is the stock size?

    Try some metric box end wrenches and see which size fits your rear sway bar. I wouldn't rely on that LMR guide. 11-14 GTs had a 24mm rear sway bar, and GT500s used different sizes depending on options (coupe vs convertible, SVT performance package or not).

    Decided to replace my front sway bar bushings as well, along with the end links.
    I'm not keen on laying all the way under the car on jack stands.
    I also have ramps.
    I should be able to replace the front sway bar bushings with the car up on ramps, right?
    Even with the suspension loaded, the sway bar shouldn't be in a bind, as long as the two wheels are even.
    Am I right?
    Appreciate your input.
