Broke both sway bar links.

I just had the dealer replace my broken driver's side front sway bar link when I had the car in the shop to get the rusted/leaking transmission cooling lines replaced on my 2009.

The VERY NEXT DAY, I drove up on a high spot while parking off-road and heard/felt a "bang" under the front passenger side. Yup... the other link broke.

I'm going to replace this one myself. Is a Moog link the best choice, or is another brand recommended? AutoZone DuraLast as good for less money?

Thanks for any insights,
Bob

Probably won't make a difference imo. You can check on rockauto to see what's available and compare pricing.


The higher, the fewer.

I got Moog's from rockauto in the back and they seem to be holding up ok for the cost savings over OEM.

I love my MOOG endlinks. All 4 corners.
Have nice grease zerks too. Only downside is they take a 15mm and 18mm wrench for install.
